Virgin/Virgina Records Made in France Import
The Ex Pistols were a scam act introduced in 1979 by one time Sex Pistols producer Dave Goodman after his services were substituted for those of professional producers. The EX Pistols existed as a sound-alike band meant to mislead fans due to the similar music, name, and artwork, that led people to believe their songs were actually new or lost Sex Pistols recordings.
The Sex Pistols successfully sued and Dave Goodman was no longer allowed to use the name.
"Land of Hope and Glory" is the first single released Ex Pistols in 1984. The single is a punk rock alternative to Edward Elgar's classic, Pomp and Circumstance using various instruments and synth orchestra (credited as "London Synthphoney Orchestra").
The song confused many due to it sounding very much like a Sex Pistols recording, and the record artwork. It was also responsible for legal threats towards producer Dave Goodman from the producers of the original song, Boosey & Hawkes.
The B side is a minute-long jam parodying the name of Sid Vicious' first band.
