Yet another treat for you all to enjoy! This one is PIL's performance from the Belgrade Calling Festival at the end of last month- The gig was broadcast on Serbia's Radio B92 station.

The International Swingers - 8th December 2011 - Metro Theatre, Sydney, Australia

The International Swingers is a rock & roll band. Another example of well known musicians with a great history behind them that love playing live. Even though they may have been known for original successes in different genres (maybe not so different)

 Clem Burke, a founding member of Blondie, is the drummer.  
On bass is Glen Matlock, I don't really need to say anything about Glen do I?
 Guitarist James Stevenson played with Gen X, Chelsea and Gene Loves Jezebel, among others. 
The front man is Gary Twinn, singer for Twenty Flight Rockers, Speedtwinn & Supernaut.

Glen & Gary had previously worked together in the short lived Dead Horse.

If you love rock 'n' roll you'll love this gig. A great, quality sounding MP3 @320 kbps

I'm not gonna lie -I'm a bit unsure about copyright issues on this recording as it was ripped from a streaming site- So if anyone has a problem with me posting this please email me & I will remove the content in full

Because of this please feel free to share via traditional methods but dont put it on another site. As you know my blog is members only & cant be found by internet search engines- also please don't post my link for this gig anywhere else as I don't want any grief from mediafire cancelling my account (they have been known to do that)

Here's the full show
01 Out Of Control
02 Hanging On The Telephone
03  Friday On My Mind
04 I'm Not Your Stepping Stone
05 Fall In Love With You
