Editorial Reviews

After the end of the Sex Pistols Johnny Rotten (or John Lydon) had built a new career with his band Public Image Limited. The early albums, ""First Issue"", ""Metal Box"" and ""Flowers Of Romance"" are now seen as classics of post punk and the highlights of these albums are in this unique Rockpalast concert. The experimental mix of dub, punk, noise and dance still sounds fresh. Included is a rare performance of the Sex Pistols' ""Anarchy in the UK"" as well as a backstage interview and rehearsal footage.

Man I used to have this on a VHS-to-DVD transfer and while the sound was good, the picture sucked. Now the people who released this has obviously had access to the first gen original tapes from the WDR german channel and have put out a top-notch product.

The performance is insane. All of the musicians set their instruments on fire, as does Lydon with his throat. The intensity is such it will make you feel as if the air in your room is about to chain-react. It lasts for about just an hour; short but it is TV fellas. There is a 6' interview with Lydon and a soundcheck on which they play a whole song non-stop in the guise of extras.

The picture is sharp and detailed, with no or almost imperceptible artifacting present.The LPCM stereo-only audio is loud, dynamic and MASSIVE, with a very good mix .

This is without a doubt the holy grail of PIL visual documents. Now if only their last reunion gigs had been filmed.....but the guys I know who attended those shows didn't see any filming crews so slim chance there. Someday....maybe. If you live long enough you get to see almost everything getting released.

Buy and treasure this puppy, if you don't like it, e-mail me for a refund :-P

One of my favorite bands is the original PIL. So when I saw this, I immediately ordered this thinking it would be a concert by Lydon, Wobble, Levene and drummer, but quickly had grave reservations when I found out it was PIL mark II. Not a big fan of the Live in Tokyo recording or much of the later PIL stuff. Must say that this version of PIL kills it on this performance. Very tight, energetic and confident performances of many early PIL tracks. It's interesting to see a live band interpret some of the Flowers of Romance/This is what you want... material. The guitarist and bassist look out of place but pull off pretty damn good renditions of Levene's & Wobbles parts. Martin Atkins is on fire on the kit and the keyboardist does an awesome job too. Highly recommend this even to those worried about "corruption" of the original versions of these songs.

"Live at Rockpalast" was beyond my expectations in performance and sound. I'm not implying the sound couldn't be better. The sound hitting my ear drums was beyond any reservations I made before opening the box. This DVD is almost better then sex. Not really, but it makes the point. Look - I have been a PIL fan since I was a lad listening to Dr. Demento and heard "FFF" from Album on his program. Hearing that made me realize I had to earn more money cutting grass so I could by more of PIL's catalog. Now, being a fan of metal/punk/alternative/whatever growing up in south Fla was not easy. People looked at me like I was possessed. In the end, it's all worth it...
