Phenominal act - at least throughout their early career. Unfortunately, with the departure of both Wobble and then former Clash man Levene, the band, under the auspices of Lydon, would choose a more commercial direction, producing a series of quite appalling releases. However, they did leave behind them three outstanding full lengths - First Issue, Metal Box, and Flowers Of Romance. And from that classic first full length here's Lydon and co performing Public Image:

Still outstanding.

I've had a recent re-appreciation of Metal Box after not listening to them for about year and a half. There were things I didn't appreciate before like "snake charmer melody" of Swan Lake (as Simon Reynolds put it). I think the impression it left on me was lessened by the presence of inferior PiL rip-offs a few years back.
