The Flowers of Romance were an early punk band, formed in mid-1976 by Jo Faull and Sarah Hall. The band never played live or released 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 "SCUM", in which Sid Vicious proclaimed "I'll always be the thug I am now".

The song "Belsen Was a Gas" originates from this band, and was later performed live by the Sex Pistols and Public Image Ltd.

The band's name subsequently became the title of an early Sex Pistols song, "The Flowers of Romance", as well as a 1981 Public Image Ltd album and song, "Flowers of Romance".

"The Flowers of Romance is about ponces, people who pretend to be friends but all they really want is to leech on a good thing and spend your money. The original Flowers of Romance had about 40 fucking members, Keith was one of them and I gave them that name." :"March 1981" [http://www.fodderstompf.com/CHRONOLOGY/1981.html Public Image Ltd.
