Public Image Ltd: D'Ya Ken John PiL

Richard North, Siren, March 1992

John Lydon refuses to go away, even though it seems the decent thing to do. Somehow he remains a thorn in the side, an anti-hero still. PiL have a new album That What Is Not and he is writing an autobiography about his days in a little known pub rock band called The Sex Pistols, which presumably calls for some investigation. Interview: Richard North.
