The Flowers of Romance were an early punk band, formed in mid-1976 by Jo Faull and Sarah Hall. The band played live at the Rainbow Finsbury Park backing The Clash but did not release any recordings, and, like London SS and Masters of the Backside, are more famed for the number of band members that later became well known, including: Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols, Keith Levene (an early member of The Clash and later of Public Image Ltd) and Palmolive and Viv Albertine, who went on to play in The Slits. Despite never playing live, they were interviewed by a fanzine named SKUM, in which Sid Vicious proclaimed "I'll just be the yob that I am now".
