Historic reunion of the original guitarists from Public Image Limited: post-punk dub bass legend Jah Wobble and that master of angular six-string fretwork Keith Levene. Wobble and Levene were the driving forces behind PiL’s landmark 1980 album Metal Box, which they revisited this year with several highly-acclaimed live shows. Yin & Yang is their first collaboration since Metal Box, retaining that album’s dense, abstract layers in places while also venturing into new, uncharted territory. Highlights include the confrontational title track, the epic ‘Jags And Staffs’ (Ian Dury meets Hawkwind?), ‘Mississippi’ (reminiscent of Cornershop or Alamaba 3?) and ‘Within You Without You’, a novel twist on a lesser-known Beatles tune.
