Today show appearance

1 Dec, 1976

The band and friends are interviewed by Grundy on Today programme. The interview derails when Lydon swears under his breath and Grundy asks him to repeat it.

Grundy: Well suppose they [classical composers] turn other people on?
Lydon: [Under his breath] That’s just their tough shit.
Grundy: It’s what?
Lydon: Nothing. A rude word. Next question.
Grundy: No, no, what was the rude word?
Lydon: Shit.
Grundy: Was it really? Good heavens, you frighten me to death.

Grundy also flirts with Sioux.

Grundy: We’ll meet afterwards, shall we? [Sioux does a camp pout]
Jones: You dirty sod. You dirty old man!
Grundy: Well keep going, chief, keep going. Go on, you’ve got another five seconds. Say something outrageous.
Jones: You dirty bastard!
Grundy: Go on, again.
Jones: You dirty fucker! [Laughter from the group]
Grundy: What a clever boy!
Jones: What a fucking rotter.
