Among the rumours of who was behind the release of the tapes included Goodman, Glen Matlock and McLaren, who has always considered Goodman's versions to be a more accurate representation of the band. Boiled down to its essentials, it's not even one album -- it's a series of singles, buttressed by a handful of songs scattered among the lone album, singles and demos. Two weeks later, the label rush-released "God Save the Queen" as a single. A moment later, Johnny Rotten left the band, manager Malcolm McLaren brought in former train robber Ronnie Biggs for a series of awful singles, Sid Vicious allegedly killed his girlfriend and then offed himself, and the Sex Pistols ' story ended, only to be turned into farce and vaudeville through countless bios, bad stories, bad reissues, tacky T-shirts, and an ill-advised reunion or two, the second of which happened in , on the Golden Jubilee. Jamie Reid 's cover concept refrained from including a picture of the group and instead was dayglo red and yellow in colour with cutout lettering and a finish resembling crude screen-prints. However, on 9 November the London Evening Standard announced on its front-page headline "Police Move in on Punk Disc Shops", and reported how a Virgin Records shop manager in Nottingham was arrested for displaying the record after being warned to cover up the word " bollocks ". When payment was not received, he declined to attend. After Seale's arrest, Branson announced that he would cover the manager's legal costs and hired Queen's Counsel John Mortimer as defence. It's not even a question of whether a band that only released one album could be subjected to a full box set treatment, because they could if it were presented with care and with a desire to fulfill the wishes of completists. That night after visiting a nearby pub, Rotten, Thomas and Price were attacked by a group of men, and the incident made newspaper headlines the following Tuesday. With advance orders of , copies, Never Mind the Bollocks debuted at number one on the UK Album Charts the week after its release.
