You might be the only person I've ever seen say anything positive about PIL.
Loved PiL until the mid-80s (though Flowers of Romance was just ok). I remember being disappointed that I couldn't afford a real copy of Metal Box, and having to "settle" for Second Edition. And the utterly fantastic record store I shopped at was called Poptones.
Jah Wobble rules!
I always liked their 'Religion'. How did that go...Stained glass windows hide the cold outside,While hypocrites pray on bended knee inside.Fat pig priest.Sanctimonious smile.You take the money, they take the lies. This is Religion. This is *your* Religion.Pure gold for my angry young man days. :)
LOVE this video. Martin Atkins added a lot of POW! to PiL.
