Nobody ever looks at me twice
I remember reading about "Metal Box" in the early 90s in Rolling Stone:

"Public Image Ltd. wanted an equally unconventional package. According to guitarist Keith Levene, the group considered sealing the discs in a sardine can that could be opened only with a key ("except we wouldn't give the key") or creating a "sandpaper-type record, which would f*** up all your other records when you put it in your collection." Instead, PiL encased a limited edition of Metal Box in a round, embossed tin can, like those used to protect film reels."

Brilliant :thumb:


Reckless Endangerment
Anyone here lucky enough to be catching any of these dates?
If so, please tell us how they went :guitar:
So excited that PiL are back together and will possibly be recording new material :)
