It was a double-album (back in the day of vinyl, before CDs took over), a soundtrack from a movie I haven’t seen. It had a rebellious atmosphere to it, from the raunchy images on the album jacket, to the cover-tunes The Sex Pistols recorded and made their own. Tracks I still remember:
- Friggin’ In the Riggin’: A folk-type tune that will stick in your mind like a nursery rhyme.
- My Way: A cover of the tune that Frank Sinatra made famous. It starts slow and jazzy, then Johnny Rotten let’s out a drawl to lead into a distorted, faster version of it.
- Who Killed Bambi?: I only remember the title.
- Road Runner: Again, Johnny Rotten’s distinctive style makes this memorable.
This is a fun album, although I remember listening to only a few tracks; I think most of it sucks. I haven’t heard it in over 20 years.
(I may make a series of posts titled “Memorable Albums” – not great albums, but memorable ones.)
