SPUNK

Spunk is a bootleg demo album by the English punk rock band The Sex Pistols. It was originally released in the United Kingdom during September or October 1977.

The album comprises studio demos and talking recorded with Dave Goodman during 1976 and early 1977, while original bass player Glen Matlock was still a member of the band. Most of the songs would later be re-recorded and officially released.
Some journalists in the British music press, immediately suspected that the band’s manager, Malcolm McLaren, was responsible for the original Spunk bootleg.

The evidence for McLaren’s involvement is speculative, although his company, Glitterbest, retained rights to the demo recordings as well as the master tapes – and the demos appearing on Spunk were presented in excellent quality.
Also, the original album’s “LYN-” matrix number prefix, the record had clearly been pressed in the UK by Lyntone, a legitimate independent pressing plant that would presumably not handle anything that appeared to be a bootleg, and would certainly allow the bootlegger in question to be traced if enquiries had ever been made by the genuine copyright owner.
McLaren always publicly denied responsibility for Spunk, but said that he preferred it to Never Mind the Bollocks.
