Various Artists - Tribute LP


Martin Atkins once drummed for Public Image Ltd., he honored his former band by organizing a tribute album.  It comes from his own label and involves a number of artists he has known, respected, and played with throughout the years. There's nothing here that's worth getting worked up about, whether you're a PiL freak or a fan of some of the groups that provide the covers. Like most tributes, it needn't be heard more than once. Flat reproductions (the Winterbrief's energy-starved "Bad Baby"), intriguing interpretations (Irmin Schmidt & Kumo's "Banging the Door" brings a different form of menace), and failed experimentations (Jared Louche's languishing, lumbering "Poptones") are provided in roughly equal numbers.
Tracks:

1. Hanin Elias Public Image
2. The Winterbrief Bad Baby
3. The Damage Manual Memories
4. Jared Louche Poptones
5. Omegaman vs. Pigface Religion
6. October File Under The House
7. Irmin Schmidt & Kumo (of CAN) Banging the Door
8. Sheep On Drugs Four Enclosed Walls
9. The Countdown Annalisa
10. You Shriek Ease
11. Scars (feat. Greta Brinkman) Seattle
12. Pete Jones Blue Water
13. Vanishing Kids Death Disco
14. Twitch of the Death Nerve Order of Death
15. Chris Haskett Banging the Door

PIL - 19th March 2012, The Boiler Room, Hoxton, London - Record Store Day 2012 Launch

PIL's 2nd gig of 2012 was a 'secret' one- although everyone knew it was happening- it was in support of the official Record Store Day Launch 2012 & the gig was invite only. This one was streamed live on the Boiler Room TV site. I was gutted as due to ill health I missed the gig & the stream.
They played the same set as the Queen Elizabeth Hall gig.
This was sent to me by a mate who I knock around with at the football- originally 'Love Song' was fucked so he resent me a second rip.
Tracks:
1 Deeper Water
2 This Is Not A Love Song
3 Disappointed
4 Warrior
5 Albatross
6 Flowers Of Romance
7 One Drop
8 Rise
