The Public Image Is Rotten (Songs From The Heart)

It's pleasing that perhaps John Lydon will be remembered just as much for his PIL project as with punk legends the Sex Pistols. Over recent years people seem to have realised that, yes, PIL were pretty innovative. To coincide with a film about the band, here is a career spanning box set with a singles collection, B-sides, rarities, radio sessions and a ton of live recordings. More Rotten than you'll probably ever need.

The Sex Pistols
Live '76

Fans of the Sex Pistols from back in the day are all dead, struggling to remember their own names, or hiding in shame from their previous incarnations as punk rockers with safety pins through their ears and Bostik stuck to their noses a la Adrian Mole. Spark some fragmented memories with Live ‘76 from The Sex Pistols, with sets from the Lesser Free Trade Hall, Screen on the Green, Islington, Chelmsford Maximum Security Prison and 76 Club. On Vinyl and CD box set.

Live at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire

Re-live the sights, sounds and smells of veteran post-punkers P.I.L live at London's Shepherds Bush Arena back in those hazy days of October 2015. Expect lots of Lydon over-dramatising and playing the pantomime dame over a passable take on their once thrilling sound. Contains last year's worst single 'Double Trouble' alongside hits new and old.

The One

The One is a single taken from Public Image Limited’s new record What The World Needs Now…, the second album to spawn from what all seem to have agreed has been a successful reunion. This track is something of a pop number, almost mellow. This is a limited edition 7” on the band’s own imprint, and the PiL logo is etched onto the B-side.

What The World Needs Now

Incredibly, What The World Needs Now… is Public Image Limited’s 10th album, although it could have been so much more had they not had that 17 year gap before releasing This is PiL in 2012. John Lydon’s returns with that acidic tongue of his bellowing his typically witty and relevant lyrics over some great instrumentation which sees PiL returning toward some heavier punk rock sounds but always experimenting. You can never know what Lydon or PiL are going to do next.

Double Trouble

The first single from Public Image Limited’s latest album, What The World Needs Now..., Double Trouble could be mistaken as a Sleaford Mods single as it kicks off, with Lydon delivering his classically cheeky and bruising vocals. It then descends into a punky dance song with a driving riff and even though it’s playing from a 10” vinyl, you get the sense of Lydon being one of the world’s best performers, as he undoubtedly is.    10” vinyl single backed with Betty Page and non album song, Turkey Tits.

Public Image Limited
First Issue

Following the demise of the much lauded, game changing punk-rock pioneers The Sex Pistols Johnny Rotten sought to undo some of the preconceptions his audience (and the wider public in general) may have had about him when choosing the configuration and direction of his new outfit PiL. No longer would he be known as Johnny Rotten reverting back to his birth name John Lydon and stripping back the inherently rock'n'roll traits of his current outfit, instead replacing them with elements of dub, dance, pop and folk to help usher in a new era of post-punk and new wave, genre styles that helped re-imagine punk rock as a flexible entity capable of more than just spit and vitriol. Along with bassist Jah Wobble, guitarist Keith Levene and drummer Jim Walker Lydon's outfit PiL issued their opening statement in the UK in 1978 (originally deemed to uncommercial 'First Issue' was robbed of an official US release) that not only helped refine the musical landscape, post punk rock invasion, but questions the very relationship between artist and consumer, attacking the british tabloid press and the like for their unjust take on Lydon's own public image as a member of the notorious Sex Pistols. 'First Issue' not only wipes the slate clean, it ushers in era of profound creativity for Lydon and his group which now spans well over 20 years and ten studio LP's.  Overseen, co-ordinated and approved by Lydon and his personal management the re-release of their classic 1978 debut 'First Issue' has been meticulously reproduced and naturally expanded upon. The 2-disc CD set includes and un-editing interview with our protagonist conducted in 1978 by the BBC radio plus a rare B-side 'The Cowboy Song' as well as sticker reproductions of the iconic PiL logo. The LP edition includes the interview, b-side and stickers plus a replica fold-out poster, tabloid adverts from the time of it's original release and the obligatory download code.

The Sex Pistols
Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols

You can debate the aesthetics and ethics of the Pistols all you want, but there’s no arguing that their only real album is, well, the bollocks. Where would we be without the results of people being inspired by it, being annoyed by it, or reacting against it? This is all the Pistols you need, really (the odd stray b-side notwithstanding).
