Granny on bongos[edit]

"SEX was by no means the only boutique of its kind on the King's Road and by the time British punk rock developed a larger following, there were competitors including; Boy, Granny Takes A Trip & Beaufort Market" - surely Granny Takes a Trip was a 1960s psychedelic-era fashion shop, circa the Beatles' Apple Boutique, I Was Lord Kitchener’s Valet etc? Was it really going as late as 1976-7? -Ashley Pomeroy 21:08, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

It switched to Punk clothes when the movement caught on. What about Acme Attractions which was to BOY what SEX was to Seditionaries? It sold Punk clothes from the beginning like SEX, or what would become Punk, that's even where Sid got his leopard waistcoat I always heard.


That's right 'Granny takes a trip' was closed by 1972 and also BOY was opened in 1978 ...... Another mistake stated that Mclaren and Westwood moved 'further down the road' this is untrue, they rented the rear of the shop 'Paradise Garage' which was run by my old friend Trevor Myles, he eventually moved on and therefore Mclaren and westwood continued with 'Let it rock' then 'SEX', 'Seditionaries', and finally 'Worlds end' the premises remains the same as the one which they rented from Trevor ...... Truth is there was nothing else like it in the street, as I said before 'Granny' was a 60s thing, Beaufort market was mainly Vintage and antique stalls, and BOY opened in 78 whereas SEX was early 76 .... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.141.226.134 (talk) 01:32, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Sid stole his waist coat from the SEX stock room; you probably heard that rumor because Don Letts owned one very similar and he worked at Acme Attractions, but he also briefly worked for SEX which is probably where his came from too. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.63.206.246 (talk) 04:29, 14 May 2008 (UTC)


In late 1975 when nineteen-year-old John Lydon was persuaded to audition for the group by singing along to Alice Cooper's "I'm Eighteen" on the jukebox --- isn't a sentence 93.97.228.234 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 00:30, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
