That's when I worked with the Sex Pistols, by the way. Maybe you'll wonder why I've kept from documenting my own experiences with the band in a special chapter. The answer is a simple one: they were all ungrateful, back-stabbing bastards. At first they'd been been known as the Swankers and had played old Small Faces songs alongside such unpunk and insipid old sixties pop numbers as 'Build Me Up Buttercup' and 'Everlasting Love'. I changed all that and got them into the Stooges and Modern Lovers.Nick Kent, The Dark Stuff (Faber: London, 2007)
