If this classic was the real Pistols second album it would have been perfect, but alas real subversion wasn't ever really on the agenda,and the "Punks" all got a future.
If you don't know what this great record is, it's a Spanish only punk cash -in that is a session musician created replica of the aforementioned "Bollocks", but fronted by what sounds like the first bloke they could find on the streets of Madrid who had heard of Rock'n'Roll; played the Pistols album to him once, then said "Ok, lets do a take", with the poor witless fool trying his best to remember the lyrics. There's lots of Rottenesque cackling laughter, and mucho misheard versions of Lydon's art-foundation course scribblings of yore.
My favourite being the almost Burroughsian version of "Seventeen" ('s) chorus ("I'm a lazy Sod"), which is gloriously transformed into the dadaesque "I'm a Lazy Seven"!!!?? And there's plenty more where that came from, but I won't spoil the fun,I'll leave it to you digital plunderers to discover for yourselves.
Musically, the sessionista faux-punk bland out was only ever bettered by the backing tracks from the magnificent second album by the immortal Adverts; ie "A Cast of Thousands"(1979); which I hope was a deliberate act on the part of TV Smith and co, and a unmatched middle finger to the cast of thousands of Travis Bickles in denim and levver!
This is fucking GREAT!, and don't you just love that cover; its as if the designer had done his research on Punk Rockers by reading Kays Catalogue (cheapo and probably now defunct UK shopping catalogue from the 70's/80's).
