Experience the excitement, fury and raw power of the epitome of the all punk bands,  the SEX PISTOLS, in their full blown glory with PRETTY VACANT!
 
While Pretty Vacant looks and acts like the Pistols, they certainly improve on the sound as most live recordings and bootlegs show how the Pistols were ‘orrible in live performances.”

I have a soft spot for The Sex Pistols, and they just happen to be the one band awful enough live that it’s entirely possible to have a good, fun tribute band for them.

With: Catfight!, Big Murder
Sounds like: The Sex Pistols, hopefully.

"They operate as a trio, but you’d probably never know that listening to the cassette. The thing to remember about this cassette is that around each corner you never know what you’re going to encounter – just about every track offers a challenging psych-out at some point, each a beast of its own kind. A solid cassette indeed, if you’re looking for consistency, this band will not disappoint." -Styrofoam Drone
