I Swear I Was in That London 
I Swear I Was in There, Walthamstow Book Club, London

4th June 1976. Four young men took to the stage of the Lesser Free Trade Hall in Manchester. The noise they made changed everything...

Forty-three years ago the Sex Pistols performed on television for the very first time - on TV's So It Goes show. To mark the anniversary, author and TV producer David Nolan will be here to talk about his documentary and book 'I Swear I Was There'. It tells the tale of the Pistols' two legendary performances at Manchester's Lesser Free Trade in 1976, plus their notorious Granada appearance. GQ Magazine called David's subsequent book version of I Swear "one of the greatest rock stories ever told".

The 2001 Granada TV documentary will be shown in full at the Walthamstow Rock 'n' Roll Book Club in London on Thursday 19 September 2019. This will be its first airing in nearly 20 years. David will also be talking about the documentary and book (and he might also slip in a mention his recent Manc noir novel 'Black Moss').

Venue information: Bank Job, 151-155 Hoe St, Walthamstow, London E17 3AN
