(Virtually everyone in Britain owned this T-shirt between 1980 and 1982) (except me).
Kill Your Pet Puppy has just chucked up an online tribute to Sid Vicious on the 31st anniversary of his overdose. I don't really have much to add: I did have a drink with an ex-punk star once, who told me about the night Sid had to be hauled by his ankles from a disco, after he'd glugged so much booze he blacked out and shat his ripped jeans.
Sid's greatest contribution to humanity was the invention of POGOing. He basically invented dancing for kids who can't dance. Just repeat that to yourself 'til the implications sink in. And, for that alone, he will always be a fucking STAR in the BTi Hall of Fame.
