GOD SAVE THE QUEEN – SPECIAL EDITION
“The title is taken from the immortalised lyrics of the naughtiest band in recent times, my all-time favourites, the mighty Sex Pistols. This is the music that hooks you in as a child and stays with you forever. To my shattered ears, it still sounds dark, evil and fun. “Another influence is of course the English artist and anarchist Jamie Reid, whose controversial ‘God Save the Queen’ album artwork for the Sex Pistols was based on Cecil Beaton’s Silver Jubilee portrait. Featuring cut-out words and letters from newspapers over the Queen’s eyes and mouth, it was shocking at the time.”
