is a definite rarity. The guy I got it from apparently got it
via the Australian tour manager. It's a black 12" plastic
box with a clear lid, and contains:
copy of the Australian 'Bad Life' tour souvenir 12"
• Sleeveless tour T-shirt / PiL logo lollipop!
• Tour itinerary book featuring arrival dates, tour
dates, hotels etc
• 28 page press cuttings dossier featuring loads of
cuttings about the tour
• Various press releases, gig tickets, handbills,
& press invites etc
• Sample sleeves for the 'Live 83' & 'Order of
• PiL logo stickers
• Various live and promo photos
You got all that? well
there's more! As well as the box there's also:
Unmarked 61 minute PiL video tape featuring: promo videos, tour
TV adverts, Aussie TV appearances, The Tube, American Bandstand
& The Tomorrow Show (all of which are excellent quality and
I reckon about 1st generation)
3 audio cassettes featuring: 2 (excellent quality) live gigs from
the Aussie tour, the Aussie press conference, and 2 Aussie radio
interviews with Lydon.
Not a bad item. To
be honest, I reckon that originally the box only featured: the
promo 12" / the T-shirt / the tour itinerary book / the lollipop.
And the tour manager (or whoever) just added the rest of the stuff
to the collection. A lot of it certainly seems to have come from
Virgin Australia so it's very possible it came from the tour manager,
but who knows...
There can't be many/any
of these about elsewhere so I reckon to a PiL collector it would
be worth at least £75-100...
