Is Jamie Reid getting any money from these Sex Pistols MasterCards?
I quite like the counterintuitive yet inevitable spectacle of a zillionaire banker ripping off an anarchist Situationist, frankly.
Would love to know what Reid thinks, though.
This isn’t an “homage.” It is Reid’s actual work:
This distressed Union Jack Flag image appeared on promotional posters and adverts for the Pistols debut single on EMI Records in November 1976, but did not actually appear on the 7″ single sleeve. The single was originally issued in a plain black sleeve.The screenprint is taken from a colour photograph of a torn Union Flag held together with safety pins. Sex Pistols Anarchy in the UK is attached by Bulldog stationery clips. This was first Pistols design to use a Union Jack flag.
