....SATURDAY JANUARY 8TH 1977
The Sex Pistols might be in
dissaray but Punk in England
was really starting to filter
through to the masses via the
BIG cities like Manchester,
Birmingham, Glasgow. But there
were also smaller scenes
growing up like in places like
Nottingham who spawned
fanzines like...
Rotten To The Core which was
"recommended to guttersnipes".
The Sex Pistols and manager
Malcolm McLaren return to London
from Amsterdam minus their record
company EMI and the bassplayer
Glen Matlock is noticeably abscent
from this picture too.

Rotten To The Core
1st Issue released January 1977.




"I want to put the Sex Pistols on the front
of every issue. It's named after Johnny
Rotten, they started it all, they made it all
possible".
- Dave Chaos (18)

The Jam at the Roxy 1977 (Erica Echenberg)
Rotten To The Core #2
Max's Kansas City, New York.
Even by January 1977 the Sex
Pistols
had become big enough to
even earn themselves a parody, as
this rather amusing 45 got sprung
upon us. Its one of the better ones of
many to follow which got a firm
tongue in cheek single of the week
slot in todays
New Musical Express.
