Out Of My Head

The Sex Pistols : Did You No Wrong

On January 27, 1977 EMI officially parted ways with the Sex Pistols, terminating their recording contract after months of obnoxious behavior on the part of the band.Asked whether he would sign up another punk rock group, managing director Sir John Read told the BBC: “Certainly. I am told there is a demand for this style of music and provided we can have groups that don’t attract the adverse publicity this group has had, we’ll certainly want to be in it".

After the EMI fiasco, the Sex Pistols signed with the A and M label on March 10. After more adverse publicity and complaints about their planned single ‘God Save the Queen’, their contract was terminated six days later.
