We have, of course, seen endless clueless types wearing the classic Ramones T shirt and now we can spot them wearing the PIL T-shirt.
Does it really matter? Who owns the culture anyway?
Afterall, we all buy our kecks in Primark these days… It’s almost quite funny in a way; turning the band’s classic debut single’s lyrics back in on themselves.

    • You can accuse Lydon of selling out with the butter ads, and that’s a valid point of view but the man himself countered that by pointing out that the ads paid for the band to record This Is PiL. It’s a great album (and I mean Great, not just pretty good) and I’d rather it had been made than not.

  1. Be honest. They would’ve cost £6 in 1979 — how much are they in Primani today? Let’s face it, they’ll be okay to sleep in…

  2. Nothing wrong with Primani selling this; HMV would charge twelve nicker. As for it falling apart; never heard of safety pins?

  3. […] post-punk genre was already representing this; the debut albums from The Fall and Public Image Limited had already been released. This genre was to reach its peak, though, in June 1979 with the release […]

  4. Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you penning this article and also the rest of the website is very good.

  5. Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…”

  6. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  7. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
