77 Sulphate Strip © Ovolo 2007 A feature length interview with John appears in the new book 77 Sulphate Strip by former Record Mirror journalist Barry Cain.

Using Record Mirror archives Barry takes a look back at the musical events of 1977; and brings the story up to date with a new interview conducted in LA last year. Barry first interviewed John when the Sex Pistols signed to EMI – though John has no memory of him! – and went onto cover various Pistols live shows through 1977; along with the US tour of 1978.

Be warned. The book doesn't solely concentrate on the Sex Pistols – but as you well know – Mr Rotten is no member of the "punk pack". There is the Sex Pistols and there is the rest… And there is Mr Rotten and there is the rest…

JohnLydon.Com heartily recommends you check out 77 Sulphate Strip. We guarantee you'll find a truly unique 30+ page interview with Mr Rotten. A heady mix of cantankerous mischief and content. Laced with revelations you won't read elsewhere. "57 varieties of talk soup" to quote the man himself.

77 Sulphate Strip is published by Ovolo Books and is available now.
