Oasis lead singer LIAM GALLAGHER was among a celebrity audience at a preview screening of new Sex Pistols doumentary ‘THE FILTH AND THE FURY’ last night – and said the story made him feel like he was in a boy band!
Speaking exclusively to nme.com, he said the film had totally blown him away.
He enthused: “I feel like putting a fuckin’ pin through me nose, yeah, then stand outside the Queen’s house blowin’ raspberries.”
“It was just great, do you know what I mean? I just feel like I’m in a bit of a boy band now. I feel like I’ve come over all queer. I just want to get back into the studio and write some punk rock, innit? It was great. I feel like knockin’ some c- out now,” he laughed.
Liam was accompanied by fellow Oasis members Gem Archer and Andy Bell. Other stars included Pistols drummer Paul Cook , Mew and Paul from Elastica, Kevin Rowland, ex-Three Colours Red Chris McCormack, Tony Barber from The Buzzcocks, Hugh Cornwell from The Strangers, Nick Forbes from the Revillos and Ed Tudor Pole.
The film, certificate 15, gets a nationwide cinema release on May 12. It’s been made by Channel Four Films by long-time Sex Pistols’ collaborator Julien Temple with full co-operation from all surviving members of the band.
Speaking about the film, John Lydon said the only reason he agreed to do the film was it was the band’s chance to “set the record straight”.
He continued: “We just tell the truth. For the last 20 years, people have exaggerated and blown up The Sex Pistols into something they never were. I think the truth the truth is far more shocking and far more interesting”.
