Any thoughts on this album?
Liars - Drums Not Dead, and if you like PIL, then yes, its really good
...if a little harder going than their other stuff from the same period.
Flowers Of Romance was the name of an early Sid Vicious band I believe.
there doesn't seem many "tunes" on it.
Quite intrigued none the less.
But it's not metal box.
much more percussion based as Jah Wobble had left and Levene decided not to play guitar, quite a change from their earlier stuff, but it works
I would consider this one of the better PiL albums out there- the thunder of Martin Atkins' drums in "Under the House" is worth the price of admission alone. I have pretty much all of PiL's output and this is in the top 3 (along with Album and Metal Box)
Went seriously off the boil after this for me, but the Public Image - Metal Box - Flowers Of Romance holy trinity more than makes up for it, and I'd call myself a big fan. If you like Metal Box you can't go wrong really, especially if you like the more sparse side of that album (Careering, etc)
is my fave PIL song.
