PUBLIC IMAGE LTD / Metal Box (1979)

Aka: Second Edition

This second album pushed the boundaries even more of what experimental music could be.  Jah Wobble's bass was again to the fore but this time was accompanied by Keith Levene’s fully aluminium guitar, both of which helped lift John Lydon’s vocals to something truly unique. Pretentious art students and music theorists loved it.  It sounds as unique today as it did in '79.
The original packaging was a 12 inch metal film can and had three records inside.

Songs of Note: Albatross; The Suit
