Real PIL: "Careering"
Fake PIL: "Ease" or "Seattle"

J (Jay), Wednesday, 18 June 2003 13:12 (11 years ago) Permalink

I would go with the entire PIL LP.

yep. I would.

I like "Paris Au Printemps". Dour, and the hate is palpable.

6 years pass...

A friend of mine just saw them up in Boston (I think), said they were really good live. And I just saw them on Fallon, playing I think a new song? It wasn't terrible.

Nah, it's from Album. All the fucking good songs to pick from and they picked "Bags"?! *barf*

Ahh, I don't have Album. Now I feel dumb.

I can kind of figure why they chose it, though. It really gives the band a workout and makes them sound pretty aggro, and if you think that's good, you'll buy a ticket to go see them play "Public Image" and "Careering" and whatever other songs you actually care about.

careering

There's actually a performance of "Public Image" on the NBC site: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/blogs/2010/05/web-exclusive-public-image-ltd-plays-public-image/

that clip ain't tooo bad but the dancing girlies in the background made it worse... i've never seen or have any idea who jimmy fallon is tho

kumar the bavarian, Tuesday, 18 May 2010 11:36 (4 years ago) Permalink

just saw them last weekend. The band was terrific - if they did a "Pil Does Metal Box" tour I'd see it tomorrow - but the late '80s stretch of the setlist was pretty ridiculous. I know they have to acknowledge 9 for all the late '80s college radio DJs or whatever, but they could have played something with a beat like "Seattle" instead of "Warrior" into "Disappointed." But the big blurt of extended Metal Box grooves following the "Love Song" opener - would see that anytime. And John was in really great voice.

Dude had a good take on playing a casino - mocking without sounding like he was wrestling with the implications Cobain-style. Most of his banter was fun, though at one point he shouted "i'm not a gambling man, but I'd bet Sarah Palin's book is shit!" and I'm not sure if he expected to blow someone's mind or what.

A buddy says they were unexpectedly awesome at Coachella.

I saw some stuff on their website, it looked/sounded great.

I did see PIL in their "cabaret" phase, 1984 or thereabouts...

Those live CD things might actually be worth the effort!

"Death Disco"

Another vote for "Rise" but it's part of a killer one-two punch with "FFF", gotta say.

Sean Carruthers, Tuesday, 18 May 2010 14:41 (4 years ago) Permalink

Tons of good stuff here. I'll go with 'Albatross.'

It's a boring, predicatable 'Public Image' or 'Careering' for me

Annalisa off Live in Tokyo, the bright spot in an otherwise poor album (though brilliant technical recording).

No votes for Flowers of Romance title track, "Under the House," or (someone has to say it) "The Order of Death" yet?

I think "Death Disco" is fantastic, and it probably would be my top pick.

hey, i was gonna say "Under The House"! that and "Banging The Door" are my all-time fave PiL trax. not that i have any beef with the entirety of Metal Box, mind...

Er, "Hotel" isn't it? See, while I understand the preference for the stuff from their first 3 albums it's short-sighted to outright dismiss the rest of the catalog. Even that last album, which sank like a stone, has some good stuff on it like "Cruel". John doing alt-rock always had an insidious feel to it anyway and some of the new versions of stuff like "Warrior" on the tour are fantastic, I really hope we get a good live album from the US tour.

I'm very fond of "Disappointed," the best INXS track ever recorded.

Must be a lot better than PiL's "Disappointed," then.

all it needs is Kirk Pengilly on sax and John telling us that he'll give us what he needs.

I'll second this - esp. the 12" extended mix

truthfully tho, I'll add another notch in the win column for "Public Image"

My OPO is the very long version of "Death Disco / Swan Lake", as on the "£ british notes best" DVD.

Or, that bootleg 12" single..
