Sid! – By Those Who Really Knew Him

March 23, 2011

Sid! - By Those Who Really Knew Him DVDForget the hype, the drama, and notoriety that pursues the Sex Pistols' Sid Vicious decades after his early death at age 21. The truth of the matter is, it seems the public has garnered a wrong image of Vicious, and a documentary titled "Sid! By Those Who Really Knew Him," sets the record straight by depicting a more thoroughand honest look at one of Punk rock's most tragic heroes. Released through Odeon Entertainment and distributed by MVD, the documentary details an intimate glimpse that better provides Vicious's background in a way never depicted before.

Former close friends of Sid Vicious narrate the entire documentary as they present Sid's rise to infamy and chronicle his life pre-Sex Pistols. Within the documentary, close friends helping to narrate the film consist of PIL's Jah Wobble, David Vanian, Rat Scabies, Vivienne Westwood, and Marco Pirroni among many more familiar faces. The documentary is the first to offer a look at the life of Sid in a way that does not portray him as sadistic or dangerous, but instead captures Vicious as another human who encounters the struggles of life. "Sid! By Those Who Really Knew Him" is a documentary that successfully represents a man who has inevitably been misrepresented and misunderstood since the 1970s.

80 minute documentary plus bonus material:
* 10 track audio CD of Sid live in New York 1978 with Kane & Nolan!
