Customer Review

on 2 September 2009
In 1979 the Sex Pistols still had singles released on the back of the rock n roll swindle film.I liked them as an impressionable 13 yr old as a kind of cartoon band.
They made their mark earlier and had such a massive impact,but now it seems like ancient history.
PIL however I immediately liked just for the music,and still do today.They sounded different to all the punk bands.
Looking back on that period,I find the most interesting of the late 70's crop of bands were the ones doing their own thing,be it PIL,Tubeway Army,Cabaret Voltaire,Suicide,Siouxsie,Throbbing Gristle or even old dogs like sparks.The numerous 'punk' bands often sounded like pastiches of pistols or even just pop music with the volume turned up and an aporoximation of a snarl.
Punk became like my generation's 60's,a golden age where everything was good and to be a poseur (i.e not sounding like a zerox of buzzcocks) was a crime on a par with the moors murders.PIL helped blow that narrow minded way of thinking out of the water and still sound remarkable today.
