                        • Sex Pistols first four singles were one of the most exciting debuts by any band, and here's an unofficial video for the fourth, Holidays In The Sun (Virgin 7" 1977). "Cheap holidays in other peoples misery". Indeed, 70s British holidaymakers suntanning themselves in fascist dictatorships like Greece and Spain. This'll start a (last) weekly trawl through second wave of punk independent U.K. singles of the late 70s.
