PIL

Found this video on Spreeblick.com this morning. Really liked the song so I'm going to share it with you...



Never heard of the band PIL (Public Image Ltd.) before so I googled them and here is what Wikipedia says about them:

Public Image Ltd. (PIL) is an English musical group formed by vocalist John Lydon, guitarist Keith Levene and bassist Jah Wobble, with frequent subsequent personnel changes. Lydon is the sole constant member of the band. Rising from the ashes of the pivotal punk rock group the Sex Pistols with First Issue (1978), PIL branched out to a more experimental sound, an idiosyncratic "droning, slow-tempo, bass-heavy noise rock, overlaid by Lydon's distinctive, vituperative rant." Their early work is often regarded as some of the most challenging and innovative music of the post-punk era. Their 1979 album Metal Box was ranked number 469 on Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The NME described PIL as "arguably the first post-rock group".
