Rock`n`Roll Circus - Sex Pistols Diorama - by Gary Willis - via Paper Toy France


The First Formation....
A crazy diorama of Sex Pistols punk band, by designer Gary Willis, via Paper Toy France website. I think Sid Vicious deserved to be in this diorama.
The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band that formed in London in 1975. They were responsible for initiating the punk movement in the United Kingdom and inspiring many later punk and alternative rock musicians. Although their initial career lasted just two-and-a-half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, they are regarded as one of the most influential acts in the history of popular music.

PhotobucketThe Sex Pistols originally comprised vocalist Johnny Rotten, guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Matlock. Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious in early 1977. Under the management of impresario Malcolm McLaren, the band provoked controversies that took Britain by storm. Their concerts repeatedly faced difficulties with organizers and authorities, and public appearances often ended in mayhem. Their 1977 single "God Save the Queen", attacking Britons' social conformity and deference to the Crown, precipitated the "last and greatest outbreak of pop-based moral pandemonium". In January 1978, at the end of a turbulent tour of the United States, Rotten left the band and announced its break-up. Over the next several months, the three other band members recorded songs for McLaren's film version of the Sex Pistols' story, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle. Vicious died of a heroin overdose in February 1979. In 1996, Rotten, Jones, Cook and Matlock reunited for the Filthy Lucre Tour; since 2002, they have staged further reunion shows and tours. On 24 February 2006, the Sex Pistols—the four original members plus Vicious — were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but they refused to attend the ceremony, calling the museum "a piss stain". - Wikipedia

...and The Second Formation, with Sid Vicious (L)
Um diorama muito original da banda punk Sex Pistols, criado pelo designer Gary Willis, via Paper Toy France website. Eu acho que o Sid Vicious merecia estar nesse diorama.
Sex Pistols foi uma célebre banda inglesa de punk rock, formada em Londres, no ano de 1975. Embora não tenham sido a primeira banda punk do país, foram influentes por trazer o movimento punk britânico para a mídia mundial, e inspiraram diversos artistas posteriores de punk e rock alternativo. Sua carreira durou apenas dois anos e meio, e produziu apenas quatro singles e um álbum de estúdio, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols. A banda era composta originalmente pelo vocalista Johnny Rotten, o guitarrista Steve Jones, o baterista Paul Cook e o baixista Glen Matlock. Matlock foi substituído por Sid Vicious no início de 1977.

PhotobucketSob a condução do empresário Malcolm McLaren, a banda criou controvérsias que cativaram a Grã-Bretanha; seus shows frequentemente eram fonte de problemas para organizadores e autoridades, e suas aparições públicas quase sempre terminavam em confusões. O single de 1977, "God Save the Queen", que atacava o conformismo social e a subsmissão à Coroa da sociedade britânica, precipitou a "última e maior epidemia de caos moral com base no pop". Em janeiro de 1978, ao fim de uma turbulenta turnê nos Estados Unidos, Rotten abandonou a banda e anunciou o fim dela. Ao longo dos próximos meses, os três outros integrantes gravaram músicas para a versão cinematográfica da história da banda, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle. Vicious morreu de overdose de heroína em fevereiro de 1979. Em 1996 Rotten, Jones, Cook e Matlock se reuniram para a Filthy Lucre Tour e, desde 2002, se apresentaram em diversos shows e turnês. Em 24 de fevereiro de 2006, os Sex Pistols — os quatro membros originais, e Vicious — foram indicados para o Hall da Fama do Rock and Roll, porém se recusaram a comparecer à cerimônia, chamando o museu de "uma mancha de mijo". - Wikipedia

  1. Hi
    Many thanks for featuring my Pistols diorama. I purposely did not feature Mr Vicious because the scene illustrates a certain point in their history when they appeared on an early evening TV programme in 1976 and people were so shocked by their language and behaviour (and that of the presenter - who was suspended) that one irate viewer kicked in his new TV set!
    Also I was at Art College with Glen Matlock!
    I have recently completed a scene of the Beatles 1969 Rooftop Concert but have not uploaded it anywhere yet.

    1. Hello, Gary,

      Your models are great! I already posted the The Beatles - Abbey Road Diorama at the blog.

      Many thanks for your really nice models!

      I will wait anxiously for your new work!

      All the best and greetings from Brazil!
