Public Image Limited – Another (1979)
Posted to mark the 59th birthday of John Lydon who, over the years, has gradually morphed into another example of the Great English Eccentric … Anyone debating the use of the word “English” is referred to his stated allegiance in his autobiography “Anger is an Energy”!
“Another” is a classic piece of P.I.L. genius. Jah Wobble’s pounding bassline, Keith Levene layering shards of guitar and John Lydon warbling on about lord knows what over the top – perfection!
Released as the B-Side to the “Memories” single in 1979, sharp eared listeners will recognise that “Another” is a version of “Graveyard” from P.I.L.’s career high Metal Box. A previous post from that landmark LP can be found here.
The vinyl version and then live from April 1980!
