1 in stock
Thanks to our friends over at Stranger Than Paradise records for sending a handful of these super ltd pink vinyl LPs over to us!
Limited pink vinyl edition with exclusive bonus 7″. Spot varnish gatefold sleeve with embossed SEX logo. Limited to 1000 worldwide.
For the first time ever on vinyl, the legendary compilation of Jukebox cuts from Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood King’s Road SEX boutique.
Curated by SEX shop regular Marco Pirroni (Siouxsie & The Banshees, Adam & the Ants), the collection is a hand-selected treasure trove of underground/outsider classics – all of which were on heavy rotation throughout the mid-70s in the hugely influential shop.
Originally released in 2003 on OLLA records, our 2020 Stranger Than Paradise Records edition includes updated artwork plus testimonials from Marco Pirroni, Don Letts, Jon Savage, Jordan, Paul Cook, and Manicured Noise’s Steven Walsh.
“…in my all-important role as ‘Sex’ shop layabout 1974-1976, it was my self-appointed duty to sit around and do nothing except be snide about everyone who came into the shop and continually play my favorite 20 records on the jukebox over and over again, until Jordan or Michael could stand no more and pulled the plug out of the wall……
“I had never heard of any of the 19 artists who had made my 20 favorite records (I still haven’t) and couldn’t imagine what they were thinking when they made them (I still can’t) but whatever it was they were thinking, they believed it – body and soul – and were making the records they wanted to make against all odds, including at times their own lack of talent. The one thing I learned from those days was that it’s more important for an artist to be actively discouraged than encourage” – Marco Pirroni (Siouxsie & The Banshees, Adam & the Ants)
“Memories of a jukebox. The first thing we did when going into the shop was head to the jukebox and fire up some music. It was great listening to all those ’50s/60’s tracks and it was a bit of education music-wise. Blasting out great Rock’n’Roll, Garage / Rebel Rock, it had to be the coolest jukebox in London at the time and we’d spend hours hanging around, digging the scene, and looking cool. As time went by we’d add our own 45’s into the mix but the jukebox choice had Malcolm’s stamp all over it with a selection of outsider, freaky misfits. ..Long live outsider, freaky misfits, and R’n’Rollz” – Paul Cook (Sex Pistols)
