Public Image Limited (PiL) are a post-punk band formed by singer John Lydon (a.k.a. Johnny Rotten), guitarist Keith Levene, bassist Jah Wobble and drummer Jim Walker. The group's personnel has changed frequently over the years; Lydon has been the sole constant member. Following the breakup of the Sex Pistols, Lydon was eager to pursue a more experimental project and formed PiL in 1978. Later that year, the group released its debut First Issue (1978), featuring an abrasive, bass-heavy sound and drawing on elements of dub, noise, and progressive rock. Their second album Metal Box (1979) pushed their sound further into the avant-garde, and is often regarded as among the most influential and challenging albums of the post-punk era. By 1984, both Levene and Wobble had left the group, and the group came under the direction of Lydon, who released a number of further albums until 1992. After a short hiatus until 1996, Lydon recorded an album under his own name, and started both bands, PiL and Sex Pistols. PiL has released several studio albums, most recently "what the world needs now" (2015) and Sex Pistols apparently stoped its activity related to live concerts in 2008... but nothing it's still sure.

JOHN LYDON
"Psycho's path"
Year:  1997
Country:  UK
City:  London
Artist:  John Lydon
Label:  Virgin
Format:  CD
Tracks:  10
Time:  40 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:         Post Punk


























Underrated and almost forgot album signed by John Lydon hymself in 1997. The recording keep still few post-punk, dub, reggae and tribal influences, but it enter openly in the field of the electronic music. This is not a "dance music" album at all, but it use a lot or even completly the sources of electronic music, sound and instruments. Then in 1997 had nor much succes neither popularity, but the true is the album has high quality, originality and well writen songs.  At the same time John Lydon started his other bands: Sex Pistols (active on live concerts until 2008) and PiL (active still in 2017). To mention also the remixed tracks made by famous DJ's such as: Chemical Brothers, Moby, Leftfield and Black Grape. Good job
