SBD presents:


Friday May 17th 2024

1979. Public Image Ltd.’s second album, ‘Metal Box’ (later re-released as ‘Second Edition’), was a lightning rod to the music world in more ways than one. The first pressing of the album was sold in an unadorned, round metal tin (hence, the album title) containing three 45 RPM 12” vinyl. The packaging signalled the intention - this was a band whose artistic aesthetic would not be forced to conform to the traditional commodification of commercialised music. As a result, the album became a hugely influential, landmark release in post-punk surpassing even the band’s incredible debut album. Now, one of the key co-creators of that album, and co-founder of PiL alongside former Sex Pistol John Lydon, has returned to Metal Box.

‘Metal Box - Rebuilt In Dub’ was the 2021 album where Wobble dug deep and brought out his absolute creative best. “It’s as mesmerising as the original, but with a deeper broader scope. I put my heart and soul into this.”

Now hear the album played live at Northampton’s iconic Roadmender venue.

Jah Wobble’s career speaks for itself, spanning over 40 year’s he’s played on countless albums, with performers such as John Lydon, Brian Eno, Bill Laswell, U2’s The Edge, Sinead O’Conner, Primal Scream, Bjork, The Orb, The Cranberries Dolores O ́Riordan and many more, as well as a regular on the hit TV show Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
