One of my favourites on TSI, along with Human Being, Buick Makane and Hair Of The Dog.

TSI is a very underrated record, unfairly dubbed as the black sheep of the GNR canon, but I definately think it holds up to their other albums. I find myself listening to it a lot more than Lies and UYI I.

i still cant work out who even did the original. was it sex pistols?

colour me confused. :question:

"Black Leather is a hard rock/punk rock song about sadomasochism written by Steve Jones and Paul Cook for their post-Sex Pistols band The Professionals. The song was released as a single, and later included in a collection of Sex Pistols singles called the Pistols Pack.

It was later covered by the all-female band The Runaways on their 1978 album, And Now... The Runaways, their last album. Guns N' Roses later recorded a version for their 1993 cover album "The Spaghetti Incident?"."

That´s the story pretty much, even if i copied it from Wiki. It´s accurate enough. I have that Pistols Pack (six 7" singles), but personally i don´t count Black Leather as a Sex Pistols-song. It´s Steve Jones / Professionals- song.

More info about history of the song and where and when it was written etc. Black Leather and other Pistols trivia
