Für den modernen Punk von heute gibt es nun nach dem Motto „Bring a bit of rebellion to your wallet“ die Sex Pistols Credit Cards von Virgin Money in Kooperation mit MasterCard. Fehlt nur noch das passende Kartenlesegerät für die Punks die „auf Platte“ leben und betteln.
Virgin Money, the bank backed by Sir Richard Branson, has launched an series of Sex Pistols credit cards, including two featuring the artwork for the band“™s 1977 album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here“™s the Sex Pistols, in its full uncensored glory. A third card features imagery relating to the single Anarchy in the UK.
It is not clear that own-brand credit cards were what John Lydon had in mind when he spat out the line „Your future dream is a shopping scheme“ on that debut single, released in November 1976. More recently, he starred in a TV advertising campaign for Country Life butter.
