Collaborating closely with talented artists, graphic designers and photographers such as Jamie Reid and Ray Stevenson, the band were closely involved in overseeing and producing their own artwork. Despite the controversy constantly dogging the band, they successfully completed most of these concerts, including a benefit gig for striking firemen in Huddersfield on Christmas Day. They Meant It, Maaaaaaaaaaaan! Here we can see how Jamie Reid built this particular piece of Sex Pistols artwork, initially adding the ransom note lettering and then the safety pin through the lower lip, though at this stage the eyes and mouth were yet to be disfigured. As well as adorning the record sleeve, it was also used on a promotional poster, emblazoned on a traditional Union Jack Flag, and also in full-page adverts for the single, published by the NME and Sounds.

This afternoon, Reid was marching through the Peak District with the director Julien Temple , shooting footage at Doll Tor, a stone circle dating from the bronze age, to mark the autumn equinox. Reid might talk like a table-thumping revolutionary, but he has the crumpled look of an eccentric country squire. It sounds mad, but it certainly makes you think. A teepee lit by a glitter ball acts as a tribute to peace camps and indigenous cultures worldwide. Reid has spent a lifetime kicking against the pricks.
