was just at a birthparty where my brother in law played an album of P.I.L. That was a long time ago i played them for the last time. All my cd's are stored in boxes and randomly so i play them rarely. But "Second Edition" -hidden in them- also known as The Metal Box is still one of my all time favourite albums. The sharp voice of Lydon the noisy guitar and especially the hunting basslines of Jah Wobble still gives me shivers. Poptones (thank you Youtube there is again! a nice video of it) is my favourite song of that album.

"Drive to the forest in a Japanese car
The smell of rubber on country tar
Hindsight does me no good
Standing naked in this back of the woods
The cassette played poptones
I can't forget the impression you made
You left a hole in the back of my head
I don't like hiding in this foliage and peat
It's wet and i'm losing my body heat
The cassette played poptones
This bleeding heart
Looking for bodies
Nearly injured my pride
Praise picknicking in the British Countryside

Here a clip of Death Disco

(btw i always hear the previous song following im Waiting for the bass intro!)


the version on the cd is much better then this version

No clip but WHAT A BASS!! Albatross

i see "old" summernights troubles at school, smoking weed at my sleepingroom window, old lost friends my black cassette walkman with tdk tapes (that's antique now!) all very lousy but such a clear time too!

a silly clip where the bass is nearly unhearable *Swanlake

Next a no clip *Graveyard The end of the cd Radio4 Music is indeed one of the strongest ways to remember the past. Emotions to long to explain. Let me just post all the songs *No Birds(with some pics). Socialist Chant


bass bass give me bassssss The Suit

What a great song wow

Bad Baby
The opening line is great i always have to think of the beatles [strangly]

"Nearly ten thirty
I'm rising early
I've got an eye to buy the best
Before the rush
Someone left a baby
In the car part
Never any reason
Don't you listen
One more sob story
Some one is calling
Seen through the window
Calling through mirrors
Don't you listen
Don't interfere
Ignore it and
It will go away
Someone is calling
Don't you listen
Don't you listen
Someone is calling
Don't listen
Someone is calling
Don't you listen
Don't you listen"

This album is always so cheap so run to shops and buy it (unless you are my neigbour...!)

here one more version of Poptones because its such a briliant song
