Rotten v. McLaren: No Winner
Michael Watts, Melody Maker, 24 February 1979
AS JOHNNY Rotten savours his first victory in the Lydon-Glitterbest case, Public Image Ltd. prepare to record a second album with a new drummer, the remaining members of the Sex Pistols ponder their future, and Malcolm McLaren has gone to Paris to cut a single, 'Je Ne Regrette Rien'. Meanwhile, the fate of the Pistols' film, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, hangs in the balance, although its soundtrack has been rush-released both in Britain and France.
