AllMusic Review by

An audio documentary of sorts, this compilation of odds and ends includes rehearsals, demo recordings, live tracks and interview excerpts with the Sex Pistols' lead singer Johnny Rotten and their manager, Malcolm McLaren, as well as such oddities as the soundtrack of an Australian TV ad and the condemnatory comments of a government official who suggests that death is the only solution to the problem of the Sex Pistols. The band's sound engineer, Dave Goodman, assembled the album, its most valuable parts being the studio outtakes, though the other material is at least amusing.
