Label & Catalogue Number:
VICIOUS RECORDS. V 2612
Recorded live at London, Rainbow Theatre 26.12.78
Good. Tinny, but clear between songs etc. The other two LP's; 'No
Life Like Low Life' & 'Nubes'
are slightly more muddy and Lo-Fi, with 'Nubes' being the worst of the
three. The difference in sound quality probably comes from poor mastering,
rather than the recording.
The LP states it was issued in 1978, however, this would seem highly unlikely.
The album is also "Dedicated to Sid Vicious", and that would
make it impossible... Sleeve also states it is a special promotional only
release, but of course it's a bootleg. Limited edition of 400?
Mock up of a magazine cover ('PME' - Extra Issue, 26.12.78) Green, front
cover features two b&w Dennis Morris Lydon photos, along with lettering
"We only wanted to be loved", "Have a Rotten Christmas from the directors
of PiL LTD." Back cover features b&w group photo, plus track listing.
Labels feature black PiL logo label on A-side, and track listing on B-side
- both taken directly from 'First Issue' and doctored to suit LP (ie:
Vicious Records instead of Virgin Records).
The LP was later re-issued
in a pink sleeve instead of green, with red PiL labels on each side.
