Some Product: Carri on Sex Pistols is an interview album featuring members of the Sex Pistols. The interviews are mostly presented in a collage style.

Content[edit]

All tracks are spoken word collages put together by John Varnom from various interviews and radio ads. Additional material includes a snippet from Tubular Bells.

The artwork was done by artist Jamie Reid.

The title melds the British comedy series of Carry On films with a pun on the word carrion.
