– The photographic content is sensational – the book is worth buying for this alone! (Phil Singleton, sex-pistols.net)

–A single Pistols gig, explored in depth. Mathiesen paints a vivid picture of what proved to be yet another Pistols show that inspired many of its audience to go out and form bands of their own. (Shane Baldwin, Records Collector)

– An essential purchase (Rachel Owen, Big Cheese)

– I can’t overstate what a joy this book to look at. It puts some of
the shoddily produced, meanly illustrated, music books from major UK publishers to shame. 
(Den Browne, Mudkiss)

This book is fabulous! I highly recommend this (Ginger Coyote LA USA, punkglobe.com) 

Punk author Alex Ogg calls the book «a forensic examination» on the back cover.

As eyewitness Asle Kristiansen observes, «it was probably the first time in 15 years that rock was ‘dirty’ again».

ALEX OGG about the book:
Sex Pistols, Steve Jones – Pingvin Club, Oslo, 1977

«Sex Pistols’ Scandinavian tour of 1977, with the band at the height of their notoriety, saw the curious and the concerned gather to gawp and gaze. On the night of July 20, the tiny Pingvin Club in Oslo saw its official capacity of 200 overcrowded, the audience a mixture of the bohemian and the bemused, including bearded hippies with the legend Sex Pistols inelegantly scrawled on their jumpers.

Trygve Mathiesen’s tale is a forensic examination of forces surrounding the band at a specific time and place when the possibilities were still endless, even though their eventual collapse was only months away. Using original shorthand notes from the group’s press call, Johnny Rotten is at his most articulate and forthright, with Sid Vicious playing the punk rock delinquent of popular myth to a tee. Just as illuminating, however, are the first-hand testimonies of those who witnessed their show at the Pingvin, and the ripple effect that ensued. As Asle Kristiansen observes, one of dozens of eyewitnesses interviewed, «it was probably the first time in 15 years that rock was ‘dirty’ again».
Alex Ogg is author of No More Heroes: A Complete History of UK Punk
from 1976 to 1980
 and Independence Days – The Story of
UK Independent Record Labels.

We probably have to go back to the union of Norway to one country in the year 865 by King Harold Haarfagre, to compare with an historic event which had the same consequences as this gig

Dice 5 (– Roar Eskild Jacobsen, Haugessunds Avis)
