☼ PiL : Image Publique S.A. - Paris Au Printemps LP [June 2008 re-post]

So, I felt like listening to some PiL, and, well.........
Just be sure to play it VERY VERY VERY LOUD, otherwise you won't get the full effect. ;)
For those who like reading, here's a bit of info gleaned off the net: The sleeve features an abstract John Lydon painting of himself, Levene & Lee. Apart from the obvious cash incentive of releasing a live album, part of the reason for the album was as an anti-bootlegging exercise. Almost every gig the band played had been released as a bootleg LP. 'Ataque' from the album had previously been released on a Virgin sampler LP called 'Cash Cows' (Virgin. MILK 1). These gigs were Martin Atkins live debut with PiL.
Quotes: 'Paris In The Spring' cost us exactly the price of one reel-to-reel tape to record. I just brought my Revox over to Paris and bunged it into the desk and that was it. We got - wonderfully - £30,000 out of Virgin for that - and they were furious. They found out what I'd done and went, 'You're just wasting our money!' But then they sent us into a studio and asked us to at least make an attempt at mixing it. Didn't bother. We just sat round all day in the studio playing cards and Space Invaders. Record companies are so stupid... ~ John Lydon, Q Magazine 1992.
