Sex pistols Experience, River Thames Boat Party - 30th Anniversary.!!



"Ladies & Gentlemen, boys & girls..& pistols fan's.. Roll-up, roll-up for the last ever Sex pistols boat party"! After a lot of wrangling, persuading & convincing - We are pleased to announce the details for this years Sex Pistols Experience Boat party trip along the Thames in London, re-tracing & re-living the events of 30yrs ago.!
As some you may know there's been some hassles over the years from the 'Authorities' trying to ban us, & prevent us, or the boat company from putting on a Sex pistols party on the river Thames ever again , mostly due to noise pollution, so we skipped it last year, to make them think we've gone away, -
"but we've not, were back! - with avengence!!"
1977 - 2007 its the 30th anniversary of the original 'God Save The Queen' river Thames boat party, on June the 9th almost exactly 30yrs to the day it'll happen one more time! It'll will be a great party as usual, & give everyone a chance to catch-up with each other again, meet a few celeb's up close, get pissed, & enjoy a real 'Sex Pistols Experience' as it was 30yrs ago when 'God Save the Queen' was riding high in the top of the charts, Sid was the new bassist, & the band were banned on the land.. So they took to the water - just as we'll do on June 9th 07 - hope you can come along!!?

Due to the overwhelming heat & squashed-up conditions aboard the 'Queen Elizabeth' in previous year's, this year we are going for a larger boat with bag's more room & TWO bars', so apologies for the slight hike in ticket price to cover the cost of hiring the bigger vessel, but were confident you'll be glad we did.!
Tickets £30.00, group booking discounts are available for parties of 10 people or more, email with your requirements, only available from here payable with all major credit cards through 'paypal' or you can post cheque's, but this is obviously slower, allow at least 5 days to clear, email for postal address etc.


On Saturday 9th of June 2007, it will also be the Queens official birthday, making it 30yrs since the Queens silver jubilee celebrations captured the imagination of the entire population, who celebrated throughout the U.K with patriotic street parties, & banner waving galore. A bold front of patriotism swept through the u.k fronting what was generally a pretty miserable time for most of us old enough to remember what was really going on. It was a very, very different time...

- "Total social chaos, rioting all over the place, strikes everywhere, no job's, people were fed-up of the old way, which was clearly not working, you were told at school or in the job center, you were told by everyone that you don't stand a chance & to just get on with it. That's why you'll get hate, & war, & race hatred, when your powerless you'll grab any sort of power you can - to retain some kind of self respect. When you don't have a future, & no-one will help you, bitterness & resentment will set in. -'John Lydon (Filth & fury)
"There is no future in England's Dreaming"
In the late 70's "No future for you" was the statement of the time, and it was only a matter of time before someone wrote a song about it. And by telling the truth about the real life, a life we all lived through, a life that the monarchy & politicians were pretending wasn't happening whilst they sipped champagne & caviar - by writing about it, and shoving our working class life reality right back in the face of not only the politicians, but the Queen herself, right at the heart of the Jubilee Celebrations, there is only one reply 'they' could fire back with, BAN IT..!
"No-one had any jobs, if you weren't born into money you might as well kiss your fucking life goodbye - you weren't going to get anywhere!" - Steve Jones.
"Sometime's you can't explain why certain things happen, & the Sex Pistols should of happened -& Did! " -John Lydon.
So what's to celebrate?? Of course it's 30yrs since the worlds most notorious rock & roll band, the 'Sex Pistols' released, & consequently had banned, their only No 1 single 'God Save The Queen'. With the most honest lyrics of the decade, 'God save the Queen' was an alternative national anthem for the British public had only they'd realized it, but most of the British public by this time were lost in the brainwash of the Jubilee hype. So the band had declared war on England without meaning to. But for those who don't belive the hype, it was also a reality check that many of us embraced as an alternative to the 'shitstem' of the time. People came in their thousands to support the cause, going to the record shop's to buy 'God Save the Queen' only to find it banned, but still managing to drive it to the No1 spot in the U.K chart. Banned from the land, the Pistols took to the water and gave a healthy kick in the Bollocks to the ruling classes & the people that "made YOU a moron". But the 'power's that be' declared that there wasn't to be a No1 single that week in 1977, thereby never appearing to let the enemy win! But we all knew better, and so history was made.

So the Sex Pistols changed our live's, and made the politicians stand up & be counted. They may of changed our live's, but more importantly - they probably changed the country.! ...and this is what we'll celebrate on 9th of June 2007, we're celebrating that 'kick in the Bollocks' to the system that tried to repress a nation. We celebrate the single that made that happen ''God Save the Queen', we celebrate the album of timeless classic's 'Never Mind The Bollocks' - (also 30yrs old this year in October 07). We celebrate a whole lifestyle change and social upheaval that became known as, or rather 'labelled as', 'Punk rock'. But Punk rock is not a label or banner, nor is it a studded leather jacket. It is a freedom of self expression, it's the right to express yourself through originality, & to live your life freely -outside of the restraints forced upon you by governments & politicians. But most importantly - Punk rock get's under your skin, & it's in your blood.! 
So book the day off work & enjoy the party, mine's a pint..! - Malcolm McDonalds (S.P.Ex manager)
