Those days of 1970s London are long gone; so much that Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones tells Goldmine in the Aug/Sept 2022 issue that his desire to listen to punk rock has certainly waned. 

"I don’t even listen to punk anymore. I’d rather listen to Steely Dan, to be honest with you,” Jones tells scribe Martin Popoff.

But the punk icon is proud of the recent TV series, Pistol, based on his memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol, and the compilation called The Original Recordings, which contains all of Never Mind the Bollocks, plus anything else one might call a Sex Pistols song.

The Original Recordings is available on 2-LP or CD

“I mean, you’ve got everything on there, and I guess it’s going to be coincided with the TV show,” begins Jones from his L.A. home, rising to the interview despite fighting allergies. “That’s the main thing; it’s all going to happen at once. You’ve heard it all before, basically, if you’re a fan."
