PiL themselves were taking the piss, but sometimes taking the piss results in amazing things - "Public Image First Issue" being one such example. Have it! Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.

Like it or not, Public Image Limited's First Issue (aka Public Image) was an album that helped set the pace for what eventually became known as post-punk. In England a vacuum had opened up in the wake of the breakup of the Sex Pistols in January 1978, and many punk fans and rival groups were impatient to see what ex-Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon aka "Johnny Rotten" was going to roll out next. Not all of the material on First Issue was necessarily forward-looking: "Attack" and "Low Life" could almost pass muster as latter-day Sex Pistols songs if it weren't for their substandard production values. These two numbers were recorded late in the project, and on the cheap, as the fledgling Public Image Limited had already been kicked out of practically every reputable studio in London.

Fodderstompf In 1976 Johnny Rotten and the Sex Pistols set the agenda for punk’s year zero with ‘Anarchy In The UK’, a song that summed up the spirit, sound and attitude of the band in one shocking package. Two years later, the Sex Pistols were in tatters, but Rotten was as unsentimental as you’d hope. Andrew Pearson While "Metal Box" takes the "Best Public Image Ltd. Album" cake, "First Issue" still contains the terrific tracks "Theme," "Annalisa" and "Public Image. The purchased album includes worthless throwaway B-side "The Cowboy Song," from the "Public Image" single, and a 55-minute interview with John Lydon.
