Music Moment: Public image Ltd “Poptones/Careering”

09 Sep

Ok i can´t be bothered writing a lengthy tome as i´m very tired and off to bed. But this is an interesting little piece of Live TV. PiL were in the middle of a tour of the US in 1980 when they did a “Live” performance on the Dick Clark Show. Straight from the off John Lydon wasn´t interested in acting to the backing tracks and starts to take the performance apart, joking and mugging in front of the camera before dragging the studio audience on stage to dance along with them Even Dick Clark gets into the act at one stage.

It certainly is a strange sight, seeing a prime time apple Pie TV audience dancing to the dystopian post punk sneer of Lydon and co. Excellent!
