Low Life II

Public Image have recently announced their intention to reform - and, under normal circumstances, this would be cause for no small celebration. However, Lydon has chosen not to include either Keith Levene or Jah Wobble in the line-up - for reasons at time of writing that are unclear. PIL, along with fellow post punk combustabilists Magazine and The Gang of Four created a uniquely trenchant triumvirate - caustic, intelligent, above all uncompromisingly genre defying. This is why it's doubly disappointing to find that Punk's 'national treasure,' has decided to revive the Public Image name but not the rancour. Fans may just have to make do with Jah's forthcoming autobiography - due any time now.


John, it's a swindle...
