Urban Myths – Sex Pistols vs Bill Grundy

Tonight’s the night! Daniel Mays‘ episode of Urban Myths airs on Sky Arts at 9PM.

Urban Myths: Sex Pistols vs Bill Grundy:
This is the re-imagined story behind The Sex Pistols’ infamous appearance on Bill Grundy’s show in 1976, a year before their legendary debut album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols was released.

The foul-mouthed encounter catapulted The Sex Pistols into the public eye and signaled the arrival of mainstream punk, while simultaneously destroying Grundy’s career – and all because of a last minute cancellation by Freddie Mercury.

Stars Daniel Mays, Steve Pemberton, Kieran Hodgson, and Kayvan Novak.
