Back To Front
Label & Catalogue Number:
Taken from the album 'Naughty'. The publishing rights on the track 'Back
to Front' are credited as "written by PiL & Adamski". However, PiL's only
real involvement with the track appears to be giving them permission to
use the same bass-line as 'Public Image'.
Apparently the original (and
officially unreleased) version of the track sampled the original 'Public
Image' bassline However, on this version it has been re-recorded.
The track 'Never Goin' Down'
also features Allan Dias on guitar, so it would seem Dias laid down the
bass-line for 'Back to Front' around the same time.
'Back to Front' was later released
as a single.
[excerpt] "Adamski is a nicely unobtrusive shade of peeling pastel
pink, with a few vivid splashes of purple. That's if you can ignore lame
tracks, such as those co-written with Soho and PiL (saccharine smooch
and irritating nonsensical rhyme respectively)."
