Sex Pistols Rock Japan,
This review is from: Sex Pistols - Live: The Broadcast Archives (DVD)
As always this Pistols concert is about an hour long and right to the point. This video was shot in Japan during the 1996 Filthy Lucre tour. The reunited Sex Pistols were certainly not short on energy and they were not looking back in any way. They performed the songs with pure attitude and the gained insite that comes from being in their forties. Johnny Rotten taunts and sneers at the audience all through the show and they simply want more from him. The song arrangements are very close to the album versons with no extended solos or added jamming, but you can be sure Steve Jones does put the bollocks to them when he needs to. Paul Cook gets his moment during the audience participation of Anarchy In The UK. He draws the crowd in and they respond! Glen Matlock bolsters the songs with his nimble bass playing. The show never drags or wears out it's welcome. Nor is it pompus or bloated. The Sex Pistols simply got in Japan's face and let the songs leave their message.
And that is why there are no bonus features on this disc. You will not find language or audio options. No backstage interviews or behind the scenes footage to be found. No easter eggs or other hidden suprises are on this disc. Anything the Pistols have to say is found in their songs.
