Under the studio lights on a New York television set in 1980, broadcaster and news personality, Tom Snyder, appeared nervous. Sweat was glistening on his forehead and the often machismo attitude he displayed on TV was slowly deflating. He tried his best to hide it, but John(ny) (Rotten) Lydons’ constant combativeness was proving too much for ‘ol Snyder. You could tell. Even bonding over a smoke wasn’t enough to soften Johns’ fury.
But anyone familiar with John Lydon would find this exchange as normal Johnny-Rotten-behavior and would probably be worried if he were acting any other way.
From 1975 to 1978, the punk rock dynasty that was the Sex Pistols raised the state of punk from the underground to the mainstream; propagating safety-pin fashion and revolutionizing punk as something other than weirdo-angry-music from New York that dudes-who-looked-like-women and women-who-looked-like-dudes were playing. John along with Sid, Glenn, Steve, and Paul spewed early 20-something rage with violent furor and anarchic fury. And now, 35 years later, their first and only album, “Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols” is the inspiration behind the “Sex Pistol Infant Shoes” from Sourpuss Clothing.
Fashioned after the iconic Sex Pistols album cover, these adorable infant shoes are precious pieces of punk rock history made for the modern-day cherub. Great for runners (running away from mainstream anything), pogoers, kickers, and first-time walkers, the “Sex Pistol Infant Shoes”–made from soft, cushiony materials for widdle baby toes—are available in four infant show sizes and keep your kid(s) protected from the filth and the furies of the ground.
