Sex Pistols are making their 3rd single available in coloured vinyl for the first time, another
limited edition classic.

Released on the 2 July 1977, in the post ‘God Save The Queen’ fall out, the band were careering
toward their all time great album ‘Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols’, also released
that year.

Along the way, Pretty Vacant came screaming into life, with its iconic primal lyrics of national
frustration – “We’re so pretty, oh so pretty, we’re vacant!” Deservedly a smash hit, it also
brought the band onto Top Of The Pops for the first time, finally presenting their incendiary
performance and music to the mass of British public.

The B-Side is one of the Pistols’ great covers, ‘No Fun’ originally by The Stooges, perfectly
complimenting the late 1970s frustration and malaise especially felt by young people in Britain.
After the 4576 copy limited release of ‘Anarchy in The UK,’ ‘Pretty Vacant’ will match the 4577
physical records available for ‘Holidays In The Sun’.

Following the success of the ‘God Save The Queen’ 7” vinyl releases in 2022 (which is the top
selling physical single of the year and finally took the track to Number 1 on the Official Vinyl
Singles Chart, 45 years to the day after it was kept off the top spot), the band’s other key singles
from 76/77 are being revisited.

Often bootlegged but never bettered, each release will be individually numbered and be
officially issued on coloured vinyl for the first time, whilst the artwork will replicate the iconic
UK original designed by Jamie Reid (RIP) ©️Sex Pistols Residuals.
