Here's the 'other' Sex Pistol's band. Talk about Public Image Ltd. John Lydon's band who are still making wonderful music to the delight of all the real Sex Pistols fans.

Absolutely love them! I've been listening to them loads...I like them almost as much as the Pistols. My favorites are Rise, Public Image, Don't Ask Me, Seattle, and This Is Not A Love Song. Holy hell, there are too many to choose from. Brilliant band.

yeah here it is. They're performing for the first half or so, and then the interview starts. The quality ain't too good:

To be honest, it depends what mood I'm in, but sometimes I prefer them as well.

Well, musically it's obvious that they're better.

But in terms of being trendy, Sex Pistols owned that category.

Yeah no one can really beat them there. I really liked how John made PiL so different from the Pistols though, and almost went to the opposite end of the musical spectrum, rather than try to make a second Pistols-type group.

I always get the feeling that if Johnny Rotten met John Lydon, somebody would get murdered.

...And now I want to listen to the Clash.

YES! I love that - that Malcolm didn't have anything to do with PiL. So it's all purely the band. I'm not really sure what to believe regarding how much power Malcolm had with the Pistols, but it's good he never got to this band nonetheless.

'That What is Not' is an excellent album, I must say. Though that song of their's (not from that album), 'Francis Massacre' or whatever just sounds like a bunch of noise. It's almost like a pre-cursor to 'raw mochic' music. haha.
