LONDON (AFP) — Punk legends the Sex Pistols announced Tuesday that they will stage a one-off gig in November to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their controversial album "Never Mind the B*llocks".

The band, who spearheaded the 1970s punk movement in England with singles like "Anarchy in the UK" and "Pretty Vacant", will play London's Brixton Academy on November 8, they said on a music paper's website.

"Maybe it's because we're all Londoners, but there would be no Sex Pistol without dear old London town," colourful frontman John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten, said on NME.com.
