Sigur Ros‘ ‘Valtari‘ has beaten Public Image Ltd‘s comeback album ‘This Is PiL‘ to the number one spot on this week’s UK Record Store Album Chart.
As Public Image Ltd. prepare to release the comeback album ‘This Is PiL‘ next week – their first for two decades – the band’s frontman John Lydon has attacked his former record companies for creating ‘a state of mental starvation’ during the long gap between albums.
Public Image Ltd. have unveiled the tracklisting for their comeback album ‘This Is PiL‘.
Public Image Ltd. will play two London gigs this coming April in support of their new EP ‘One Drop‘.
Public Image Ltd. have confirmed the details of a new EP – their first new material for two decades.
With the release of a new Public Image Ltd. album seemingly now imminent, the band’s principal member John Lydon has taken aim at TV talent shows such as the X Factor for creating an environment in which innovative acts struggle to find attention, claiming the medium has ‘taken over’ the music industry.
Public Image Ltd. are to re-issue their entire back catalogue next year, according to reports today.
In response to the lost tracks, Lydon simply said: “Welcome to Rotten World.”
Just what happens to a punk after the demise of the ‘70s?

John Lydon however was fairly quick to develop his post Pistols band Public Image Ltd when he formed the group in 1978, developing his style to adopt a more experimental dance rock persona.
