Interesting soundtrack to the film.

The soundtrack to The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle is an interesting grab bag of music,  You have a few demos from the band.  Great Train Robber Ronnie Biggs recording a couple of tracks (Belsen Vos A Gassa, No One is Innocent). Sid Vicious sings on several (My Way, C'mon Everybody, Something Else) Malcolm McLaren sings on one as well (You Need Hands) and Johnny Rotten's "replacement" Edward "Tenpole" Tudor (Who Killed Bambi? Rock Around the Clock, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle).  Steve Jones sings (Lonely Boy, EMI, Friggin in the Riggin) and Paul Cook (Silly Thing).  On the album you'll find a disco medly of the Sex Pistols' hits and a french version of Anarchy for the UK.

I found the album to be very amusing and if you love The Sex Pistols or a fan of the movie then grab a copy .  It's also a fun introduction to the band and if you ever wanted to hear Sid Vicious or Ronnie Bigg sing.
