    That’s a great article. Funny story about that album. I bought the cd before there were parental advisory stickersL I was 14 or 15. Fast forward a decade and a half. I’m teaching English in a small, rural high school in East Texas. Over the weekend, I cleaned my garage and found a cache of CDs, including this one. I regularly play music in my classroom during appropriate times. So, I pop this cd in. Oh, I should mention that in that decade and half, Tipper Gore and her moral majority successfully lobbied to get the parental advisory stickers and i had become accustomed to seeing them on explicit material. So, I’m like, “let’s listen to some old school RR.” I see the SP NMTB with no parental stickers. First song: “frack this and frack that frack it all to fracking shat!!!!” Ummmmm......Let’s listen to something else.

    To me, the Sex Pistols are the Monkees of punk. (And I say that as someone who loves the Monkees.)

    They should have had a weekly TV show!

    NMTB is one of the top ten RnR albums of the 70s. It still sounds awesome.

    I think that was the same year I discovered Al Di Meola John McLaughlin, John Scofield, Robben Ford and Larry Carlton. Couldn't care less about anything punk back then.....

    NMTB was a watershed for me. I've always loved the songwriting and the really rough around the edges production. Fun stuff!

    And , his buddy Nels Cline worships D Boon and Minutemen who I love as well.

    Great , kinda-left field influences on a couple of serious, often times jazz musicians.

    A lot different than who Dexter Gordon or Horace Silver would cite as influences ...o_O

    I liked both Di Meola and the Pistols, Carlton, McLaughlin, the Dolls The Ramones and the Clash back then.

    Before I first heard it, I expected it to be much more extreme due to their reputation, Sid Vicious etc. I think I expected it to be more “hardcore”, atonal and noisy.

    It’s surprisingly “catchy” and aside from the snotty vocal delivery and lyrics, it’s almost like Bad Company or something. Pretty standard rock.

    Love Clash, Ramones and all it just took me longer to get there. I mean really, I was a jazz snob.

    That's weird; first song on all the copies I've seen is "Holiday In The Sun", not "Bodies".

    That would have been brilliant! Especially going by their infamous appearance on an early evening talk show in 1976. Enjoy (warning - lots of swear words!):

    CDs are $19.99 and Vinyl is $39.95 here. I had that choice when I bought Ry Cooder's "Prodigal Son".
    The kids here in Oz are really getting into the stuff we grew up on ( and wanting our old Hi-Fi sets.

    How odd that the swear filter doesn't allow **** (faeces), but bollocks is fine.

    Anyway, I bought NMTB in 77. Still have it.
