A bit of satellite-watching the other night put me in the mood to listen to one of my favourite Sex Pistols tracks, Satellite, which appeared on the B-side of Holidays In The Sun in 1977.

A real satellite passing over Earth.

Of course the song has nothing to do with satellites, but instead refers to the Sex Pistols’ early gigs in satellite towns in the UK.

The track also appears on their album Never Mind the Bollocks, the cover of which inspired the colour scheme for my Bombed Out! book cover.
