The Sex Pistols will celebrate the 40th anniversary of their landmark debut album with a new book entitled 1977: The Bollocks Diaries.

Due out on October 26 via Cassell Illustrated, 1977: The Bollocks Diaries features stories from the recording sessions and chaotic promotional tour for the band’s first and only proper studio album, Never Mind The Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols.

According to a post on the band’s official website, this includes “first-hand stories of secret gigs, recording sessions, fights, record label meltdowns and a media storm like nothing ever seen before” from surviving band members Johnny Rotten, Steve Jones, Paul Cook and Glen Matlock.

“[Manager] Malcolm [McLaren] was a s—- -stirrer,” notes Matlock in one of the book’s enlightening quotes. “I think he’s got a short attention span. He played this game of pitching me against John. Now we realize there was a lot of false information going between us.”

Diaries also examines the infamous release party for the controversial “God Save The Queen” single, which found the Sex Pistols attempting to crash Queen Elizabeth’s Silver Jubilee via riverboat.

1977: The Bollocks Diaries will also include photos and rarities from the Sex Pistols’ archives – such as flyers from the band’s first shows, the first drafts of art for the album and the tapes and notes from the recording sessions at Wessex Sound Studios in London.
