The Sex Pistols: London's Most Notorious Band, Club Chalet Du Lac, Paris, 3 September

1976
A rare French concert poster.  
79 x 53 cm. (31 x 21 in).
The design for this poster, by Malcolm McLaren, was originally intended for a t-shirt, and was used despite objections from Glen Matlock and Bernie Rhodes (manager of The Clash, and at this time working with The Sex Pistols). In fact, when adding the concert details to this poster, Rhodes tried to cover up the boys’ genitals with lettering and reportedly said: ‘Malcolm likes to titillate, but I like to get down to substance’.
