This was the band’s first appearance on the show, in 1980 but as John Lydon/Rotten had a reputation from the Sex Pistols, they must have expected something out of the ordinary. This is brilliant – the audience had no idea what was happening, but they all seemed to have had a great time. Full credits to the cameramen who managed to keep up with him as he raced about the studio and at times made it clear it was pre-recorded. Apparently Dick Clarke claimed it was the worst show but he liked it so much he asked them for more. A real gem.
