Public Image Ltd – The Artist/s

Public Image Ltd (abbreviated as PiL) are an English post-punk band formed by singer John Lydon, guitarist Keith Levene, bassist Jah Wobble, and drummer Jim Walker in 1978. The group’s personnel has changed frequently over the years; Lydon has been the sole constant member. Following his departure from the Sex Pistols in January 1978, Lydon sought a more experimental “anti-rock” project and formed PiL. That year PiL released their debut First Issue (1978), creating an abrasive, bass-heavy sound that drew on dub, noise, progressive rock and disco. PiL’s second album Metal Box (1979) pushed their sound further into the avant-garde, and is often regarded as one of the most important albums of the post-punk era. By 1984, both Levene and Wobble had departed and the group was effectively a solo vehicle for Lydon, who moved toward a more accessible sound.

This is Not a Love Song – The Song

‘This is Not a Love Songis a song by post punk rock band Public Image Limited. It was written byJohn Lydon, Keith Levene and Atkins. It was taken from their fifth studio album, This Is What You Want… This Is What You Get.

The Heart / No Through Road Sign  – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a heart over a no through road sign with a nod towards the PiL logo. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
