Now Playing: Public Image Ltd – Rise

Music journalists love a genre label – Public Image Ltd is categorised as ‘post punk’ although it was a creation of one of the main exponents of punk – John Lydon/Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols. Formed in 1978, Rise was released some years later in 1986 on the album conveniently named Album.

A few years ago he talked about how he wrote the song about Nelson Mandela and apartheid. Go Johnny!
