Sex Pistols : Manchester 1976

An absolute gem tonight - reasonable quality audience recording of the Pistols in Manchester. This is not only a famed boot but also a historical document - the legendary Lesser Free Trade Hall gig, 4/6/76.

The audience included future members of Joy Division / New Order, Buzzcocks / Magazine, The Fall & a host of other, more obscure future Manchester outfits...

  1. Cheers for this. One of the best Sex Pistols bootlegs there is. It's worth checking out the book about this gig 'I Swear I was There'.

  2. I've read it m8. An excellent book... all the people who claimed they were there would have filled the Free Trade Hall many times over lol
