Format: DVD
This is a fantastic DVD for any longtime fan of the SEX PISTOLS, anyone curious about the beginnings of English "punk" or anyone just passionate about rock music. We are treated to candid and relaxed interviews with the important characters involved in bringing this great album to life.
I think this makes a great companion documentary to THE FILTH AND THE FURY; a fine documentary, kind of using the anti-gloss, cut-up approach for highlighting the influences, the rise, the fall and impact of the SEX PISTOLS. For me, NEVER MIND THE BOLLOCKS has never grown old, the music brilliantly simple. In addition, knowing the history of the band, it makes the music that much richer. On this documentary - John Lydon speaks fondly to the comic, almost camp feel at the heart of this album. Steve Jones laments that if they hadn't kicked Glen out, if they didn't do the Bill Grundy show - there may have been more albums from the SEX PISTOLS.
The bonus material is simply stuff that was excised from the main event of this DVD, because it strays away from the subject of the album itself. It is possible this was originally aired as a series on television, and they had to trim everything for interest of time? Whatever the case, I wish they just presented it as a whole - all included. The bonus material can only be viewed section by section, and that can get tiring after a while. Not a major complaint, really.
I'm glad I bought this DVD; it provides a fresh view to a notoriously underrated band. I recommend it highly.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this nifty little documentary will take you by surprise and throw you for a loop. Upon initial examination of the case, I was half expecting a cheesy VH-1 or MTV-style piece, poorly researched and rehashing facts and half-truths that us Sex Pistols fans have heard told over and over again. The cliche about not judging a book, er, DVD, by its cover is especially apropos here since the producers have really done their homework and managed to gather revelatory interview footage from all of the culprits involved in the making of the band's "only" (God, does that term rankle me - doesn't "The Great Rock & Roll Swindle" count?) album, including the band (minus Sid of course), Malcolm McLaren, producer Chris Thomas, engineer Bill Price, and record company man Nick Mobbs. Interspersed with the interviews are clips of the band playing live in clubs and on TV and generally wreaking havoc in and around London ("The Bill Grundy Show" anyone?), most of which are familiar to fans of the band, but which never seem to get old. Of particular interest is learning that John Lydon can actually let his guard down and smile (and should do so more often - it suits him), Steve Jones demonstrating just how he gets that guitar sound by effortlessly casting off patented wall-of-noise riffs from his white Les Paul, and Price showing how he combined guitar, bass, drum and vocal tracks in the studio to create a big, beautiful din that a thousand Nirvanas couldn't come close to duplicating if their lives depended on it. Loaded with extras, including an additional segment of Jones basically showing off on guitar (I know I'm dwelling on Jones, but I'm fascinated by the technology of guitars and amps and he's so amiable you just want to buy him a pint) and crystal clear live footage shot in Stockholm, this wonderful disc demands a look. Highly recommended!

I was a bit hesitant about this one, as I had read absolutely nothing about this DVD prior to its release. Man, what a pleasant surprise! There's tons of interview footage with the band and Malcolm McLaren, and it was fun to hear them speak so enthusiastically about the making of the album. Glen Matlock and Steve Jones explain a bit about where riffs for songs came from, and how the songs developed. Also included are interviews with Jamie Reid (cover art designer), Chris Spedding (producer), and Bill Pryce (engineer). One of the highlights for me was listening to Pryce explain how they got the Pistols sound in the studio - he pulls out the original recordings and isolates tracks to aid his explanation! They even found and interviewed the guys from A&M and EMI who were responsible for signing the Pistols. This DVD is invaluable to Sex Pistols fans. You won't be disappointed, I promise.

If you are a pistols fan or just curious about one of the most influential bands ever, then this DVD is not to be missed. Packed full of interviews, concert footage and other goodies (my favorite is 'play in a day the Steve Jones way'), this disc is full of surprises.
No surprise, though, that the pistols were, in fact, good musicians, often imitated, much maligned. The engineers Chris Thomas and Bill Price digging into how they mixed NMTB is fascinating if you've ever worn out a copy of that great, great album. The pistols were a fantastic accident and this DVD gives you a glimpse into their genius. Yep, genius.
