When Bill Grundy met the Sex Pistols....

It is 30 years since television stalwart Bill Grundy’s career disintegrated over night. Well, what did he expect when inviting a new phenomenon called the Sex Pistols onto his respectable tea-time telly programme, Today…?

I have watched the segment so many times where Grundy is goading the Pistols into saying something outrageous and ya know, they just couldn’t disappoint especially as Grundy comes over all like a letch towards Siouxsie Sioux (part of the Bromley Contingent. Bromley? Oh, how Bromley has changed!). “You dirty fucker” ended Grundy’s career and the Sex Pistols had arrived. Two-fingers to the establishment and anarchy in the UK.

Sex Pistols, I salute you!
