A definitive, guerilla zine anthology of everything Sex Pistols edited, photographed, and designed by Ray Stevenson. The facsimile collage is a textural element that formally compliments the perception of wildness in the actual images and texts. Stevenson has layered newspaper clipping, show still, and photos of the slouchers, posed and unposed, in colour and black and white. The kind of mosaic of the Pistols ephemera spread is captioned by Stevenson's chronology and biography, personal critical commentary, and concrete poetry, adding a kind of mad structure to the composition absolutely in line with being out-of-line, like the Pistols themselves.
