Sid Vicious Was My Lover

When Sex Pistols Fall In Love

A few months after he joined the Sex Pistols, Sid Vicious hooked up with beautiful 16-year-old Norwegian Teddie Dahlin who was acting as translator on the band’s 1977 Scandinavian mini-tour.

Sid, 20, had split up with girlfriend Nancy Spungen at the time, and the smitten bass-player begged Teddie to come back to England with him.

If her horrified mother hadn’t confiscated her passport, Sid might not have got back with Nancy, and might not consequently have died in New York nineteen months later. The course of punk rock history might have changed…

Teddie’s book A Vicious Love Affair: Remembering The Real Sid Vicious recalls her fling with the doomed punk icon, born plain John Ritchie in Lewisham, South east London.

She has also written Fast Living: Remembering The Real Gary Holton about the suspicious death of the Heavy Metal Kids front-man and TV star.

Garry’s other guests tonight are Cockney piano player Frankie Boy Flame, and Phil Templar from New York Oi band The Templars.

A lively show full of terrific music and punchy discussions, featuring largely brand new tracks by Stiff Little Fingers, Bishops Green, Chris Pope, Rust, Nick Welsh, The Antagonizers, Laurel Aitkin, the Evil Turkeys, The Outfit, Superyob, The Warriors, Jonny Cola & The A Grades, Epic Problem, and Close Shave.
