Sex Pistols - Winterland Soundcheck 1978

greetings pop pickers!. got this little gem this morning from camden dave so i thought id take a short break from B.A.D to repost it here. Its the soundcheck from the infamous gig at the Winterland in Jan of 1978. Theres a lot of on stage jamming, sid playing ramones bass lines, the band run through a few numbers and lots of banter and swearing between the band and others. Anyway it runs about 20 mins in total. the sound is brilliant throughout but i suggest turning it up and hooking up a pair of good headphones to capture it in all its glory. you all know the history of this gig so without further ado please listen, enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

This is a fantastic addition and something different from the Pistols. This is the sort of thing you never get to hear under most circumstances so thanks for posting and sharing this gem.
