Dyer's Notes regarding the Club Pairing, 'Sid and Nancy' (included on original club fiber labels):
"Sid Vicious (of the punk band the Sex Pistols) and Nancy Spungen were a notorious couple, famous in the late 70's punk music scene. They met in March 1977, almost immediately becoming a couple. Their relationship, defined by their inseparable bond yet marred by violence and drug abuse, ended only a year and half later with Nancy's death by stabbing, allegedly at Sid's hand. Nancy was 20 yrs old. Soon after Nancy's death, Sid died of a heroin overdose at the age of 22. When I first decided to use this couple as inspiration for a paired colorway, I envisioned strong, bright tones, celebrating what I initially perceived as their high energy, loud lives. However, the more I learned about them, the more I realized the deep sadness of their story. I tested and tested, working towards these somber, sad, dark tones, paired with jarring, edgy colors. I know this is a challenging pair of colorways, and it will be interesting to see the various ways you spin them up :)"
To learn more about this famous couple, I suggest the movie, “Sid and Nancy”, starring a very young and amazing Gary Oldman, as well as reading this excellent bio.
