As a massive fan of PiL to this day – I missed the period between Metal Box and Album. Wobble and Levine originally and McGeoch briefly – with session musicians on Album (late-1985) inc Ginger Baker and Steve Vai – and later (to this day) Lu, Bruce and Scott, but this popped-up randomly from a pre-Album 1985 Tokyo “Anarchy” gig with a tour line-up I’d never heard of (!).
Not the best audio-visual recording, but looks and sounds like an excellent tight PiL set, with a couple of Pistols classics thrown in. I know John’s a bit Marmite (and he don’t care) but he represents an amazing body and continuity of work.
