i could be wrong/ i could be right
i always found that, in retrospect, PIL was far more musically interesting then the sex pistols who were limited, at the very least, and more the emotional distillation of the feelings of a movement then the heart and soul music of one. looking at them to find punk originals instead of looking at new york city in the mid 70s is like looking at the beegees and the music of saturday night fever and thinking you're seeing the real disco that influenced everything from techno to prince to house music to ebm with nary a nod from particularly american primarily heterosexual honkies that stole from it mercilessly while negating it and misunderstanding it's origins.

so the boy looked at johnny and johnny went disco.

Happy Holidays to you and the kitties.

Metal Box = brilliance
