Siouxsie Sioux and Steven Severin met at a Roxy Music concert in September 1975, at a time when Glam Rock had faded and there was nothing new coming through with which they could identify. [3] From February 1976, Sioux, Severin and some friends began to follow an unsigned band, the Sex Pistols . [4] Journalist Caroline Coon dubbed them the " Bromley Contingent ", as most of them came from the Bromley region of Kent, a label Severin came to despise. "There was no such thing, it was just a bunch of people drawn together by the way they felt and they looked." [4] They were all inspired by the Sex Pistols – from watching them, they realized that anyone could do it. [5] When they learned that one of the bands scheduled to play the 100 Club Punk Festival , organized by Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren , pulled out from the bill at the last minute, Sioux suggested that she and Severin play, even though they had no band name or additional members. [6] Two days later, the pair appeared at the festival held in London on 20 September 1976. With two borrowed musicians at their side, Marco Pirroni on guitars and John Simon Ritchie later known as Sid Vicious on drums, their set consisted of a 20-minute improvisation based on " The Lord's Prayer ".
