John Lydon has announced details of a talk in Oxford for next week.

The former Sex Pistols and PiL frontman will appear at a Blackwell's event at the Sheldonian Theatre on Monday (December 8) from 7pm to 8pm to discuss his new autobiography, Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored, which is Lydon's second memoir to date. His first book, 'Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs', was published in 1993.

Entry to the event costs £5 and a pre-signed copy of the book costs £20. Find out more details at the Blackwell's website.

Lydon recently told NME that the Sex Pistols' seminal album 'Never Mind The Bollocks' is underrated and that he's always felt misunderstood as an artist.

"It amazes me when I see these all-time top albums lists, and 'Never Mind The Bollocks' is hovering around Number 10, 15 or even 20," he said. "This is a band that pushed it so far we were discussed in Parliament under the Treason Act, you know?"

Lydon also revealed that he's got more than 2,000 pages of notes for the new PiL album. "I know once I get in there with the lads it'll all go out the window. It'll be the thrill of seeing each other again. They're the best people I've ever worked with," he stated.

Anger Is An Energy: My Life Uncensored is out now.
