Including their famous Lesser Free Trade Hall show...

Sex Pistols are set to compile a series of rare live recordings on a new box-set.

It's now forty years since punk crawled from the sewers of London, four decades that have seen pop culture turned on its head countless times.

Yet there's something about the visceral thrill of those early cuts from the Sex Pistols, The Damned, The Clash, and The Slits that still thrills.

Now a host of early live recordings from Sex Pistols will be released a new 4-CD box set. The set includes performances from Islington's Screen on the Green, HM Prison at Chelmsford, and Burton on Trent's 76 Club.

Perhaps most tantalisingly of all, though, is a full recording of the band's show at the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester - a much-mythologised gig that sparked a fire in Manchester's music scene, one that has never gone out.

'Sex Pistols - Live '76' will be released on August 19th. Tracklisting:
