Sunday 30 Jun 2013 Other Stage

Happy now that you're here

Formed around the lynch pin of John Lydon, PiL have defined post-punk after the break up of the Sex Pistols. With a desire to be radical fuelling their every move, steady guitars with an edge of dub reggae form the setting for Lydon's demanding voice, proclaiming and wailing his anarchic sentiments.

Seminal album Metal Box was released in 1979, and was heavily praised by Drowned In Sound for being '...a work that wallows in the intensity of its darkness.'

Latest album This is PIL was released last year and smacks of folk music with surprisingly nostalgic references to England. Lydon credits their revival almost entirely to the royalties made from TV advertising, which further adds to the oft-contrary, but never conventional life and work of PiL.

Watch the pastoral Glastonbury idyll gleefully challenged and confronted by their long-standing rock heritage.
