Review of Public Image: First Issue

Many music fans know of the punk revolution in the late 1970s that highlighted the band The Sex Pistols and their eccentric, passionate and often blasted-on-drugs-and-alcohol lead man, Johhny Lydon, aka Johhny Rotten. Johhny was quite jaded and was upset at how the Sex Pistols ended and wanted to make his own music. Cue his new band, Public Image. For September 2021, Sonic Collective member Darren Scott selected this first Public Image, soon to be Public Image Ltd. album, First Issue. It’s raw, it’s angry, it’s experimental, it’s post-punk, and it pushed our reviewers to the edge. Listen to our review of this 1978 album and hear how it stands up against the test of time and our musical palates.

A few things you will find out in this episode are:

• Influential does not mean well composed music necessarily.

• One of the members of Public Image was from Edmonton Alberta.

• Johnny Lydon was very very angry at this point in his life. The music shows that.

Enjoy and comment!
