Public Image Ltd (abbreviated as PiL) are an English 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 his departure from the Sex Pistols in January 1978, Lydon was eager to pursue a more experimental "anti-rock" project and formed PiL. That year PIL released their debut First Issue (1978), creating an abrasive, bass-heavy sound that drew on Wobble's dub influences, and Lydon's interest in noise, progressive rock and disco. PIL's second album Metal Box (1979) pushed their sound further into the avant-garde, and is often regarded as one of the most important albums of the post-punk era. By 1984, both Levene and Wobble had departed and the group was effectively a solo vehicle for Lydon, who moved toward a more accessible sound with the commercially successful album This Is What You Want... This Is What You Get (1984) and Album (1986). After a late 1990s hiatus, Lydon reformed the group in 2009 and has released several further albums, most recently What the World Needs Now... (2015).

JOHN LYDON
"Psycho's path"
Year:  1997
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
