Uncut magazine interviewed Lydon, Wobble, and Bill Price on the recording of "Public Image."

I'll tell you, Lydon gets ragged on for selling butter and getting into nonsense like I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, but compared to Levene, he comes off like a more earnest version of goddamn Ian MacKaye here. Wobble's contribution is great too, the dude knows how to concisely nail a fucked up situation.
When approached to participate in this piece, Keith Levene has only this to say on his time with the band: "I'm not talking about PiL. I'm not trying to be a cunt. This is silly. Come on. I'm done with it."

JOHN LYDON, PERFORMER: I was very vulnerable. I was facing endless legal nonsense from McLaren, and I had nowhere to live, and I was flat fucking broke. Changing my name back to Lydon was to deal with McLaren's lawsuit. He wanted to continue using "Johnny Rotten" under different guises, and I wouldn't allow that to happen. The pressure was relentless. But I wasn't going to go back to a no-hope council flat and let the bastards beat me.

JAH WOBBLE, PERFORMER: Look at reruns of The Sweeney. That's what 1978 was like. Corrugated iron, poor-looking. Post-war. It was the real fag-end of punk up the King's Rd. It was bad-tempered and macho, with fascist skinhead losers drinking cider. As a reaction, we wore suits, had a bit of flair. I never did like punk.

One thing that people often forget about Lydon is that he often adopts a persona in public. That's something he said with regret about Sid, that he never understood that Johnny Rotten was just a persona and that he didn't need to be Sid Vicious twenty-four hours a day. The public sees more of real(?) John Lydon as he's gotten older and more reflective of his past.

I managed to get a second hand copy of Plastic Box, but the booklet is missing. Can anyone give me a scan of the contents? I always read these things and feel I'm missing out on something here.

PiL December 14th re-issues

Metal Box: 3 CD set
CD1: 1. Albatross 2. Memories 3. Swan Lake
CD2: 1. Poptones 2. Careering 3. No Birds 4. Graveyard
CD3: 1. The Suit 2. Bad Baby 3. Socialist 4. Chant 5. Radio 4

This seems totally pointless to me, what a waste of an opportunity to have some more monitor mixes or outtakes. Is it really worth putting this over 3 CD's like the original vinyl when the whole point of CD is to get more music on one disc.

Plastic Box will also be re-issued on the same day.

Thanks for nothing. :mad:

That is so bizarre. I usually love me a decadent and largely unecessary re-issue... but what the hell?

At least I can finally pick up a physical copy of Plastic Box.

Yep the Plasic Box gets a small cheer I suppose and it will allow Virgin/E.M.I. to cash in on the recent gigs.

Especially annoying when there are two known (mostly) unreleased batches of PiL recordings—the re-recorded first album and the Renovations sessions. Then again, it could be worse: a deluxe edition of That What Is Not. :yuck:

You know, the 180-gram vinyl really brings out the warmth of that album... :shifty:
