Metal Box: Super Deluxe Edition
Digitally remastered and expanded super deluxe four CD edition of Public Image Limited's seminal second album, originally released in 1979. With all lyrics written by John Lydon Metal Box was recorded with original PiL members Keith Levene and Jah Wobble. Original drummer Jim Walker had left, to be replaced by a succession of drummers. Metal Box came out less than a year after PiL's debut Public Image: First Issue yet it was nothing like it's predecessor. Things had changed, and so had PiL. While outside pressures mounted PiL channeled their energies (negative and positive) into a record that would set them apart back in 1979, and indeed today in 2016. Whether it be John's powerful and passionate vocals; Keith's wailing guitar and melodic synths; Wobble's sub-disco reggae basslines; or the crashing rhythm that holds it all together, Metal Box has many strengths. The album was originally released as three 45rpm 12" singles housed in a metal film canister as made by The Metal Box Company in London's East End; hence the name. The super deluxe edition, also housed in an embossed metal box, includes rare and unreleased mixes from the recording sessions, along with B-sides and BBC sessions, a live recording from a now legendary unplanned show at Factory Records Russell Club in Manchester arranged on the day of a Granada TV appearance and exclusive posters and postcards.
Second release from John Lydon (Johnny Rotten) after the destruction of the Sex Pistols. This digitally remastered version includes all the remasters from the Metal Box project.

This Is Pil
Widely regarded as one of the most innovative and influential bands of all time PiL's music and vision earned them 5 UK Top 20 Singles and 5 UK Top 20 Albums. With a shifting line-up and unique sound John Lydon guided the band from their debut album First Issue in 1978 through to 1992's That What Is Not, before a 17 year hiatus. John then resurrected PiL in 2009 playing live worldwide. Now after 20 years yet another new and unique chapter is set to unfold in the shape of new PiL material. This Is PiL will contain 12 new tracks and is self-funded by PiL and will be released on PiL's own label 'PiL Official' John Lydon talks about This Is PiL: ''Well, 12 songs, where do I begin? Everything and anything that attracts my attention. 'One Drop' is about my early youth in Finsbury Park. Fantastic! Hello, we're all teenagers don't you forget it! At any age, stay young. 'Lollipop Opera' is basically a beautiful bunch of background noise and music to sum up Britain and all its wonderful ambidextrous-ness! 'The Room I Am In' well that's about drugs and council flats. And there's a tragedy that still continues. 'I Must Be Dreaming' Well, you know, I must be to put up with these governments.''
This Is What You Want This Is What You Get
Originally released in 1995, this album has PIL pushing the envelope as they evolve into more than just a punk band, taking on more of a jazz/industrial sound as they expand their music and direction.
What The World Needs Now...
