Original handbill from an important date in Pistols' history. As Lee Wood explains: "A cheque for the first installment of the EMI advance arrives - £20,000. [The band plays] Dunstable, Queensway Hall supported by The Jam. Less than 80 people turn up. The Sex Pistols open with 'Anarchy in the U.K.' The Jam appear as a four piece band Paul, Bruce and Rick plus a keyboard player." Rare and with killer provenance. Not in Burgess and Parker.
