Fun interview between Steve and Lydon on 'Jonesy's Jukebox', 2006.
They collectively look about 500lbs lighter in that picture.
Lydon especially doesn't look like a Hutt.
By very minute degrees. The one thing about Jones is he doesn't come across as an asshole.

He's a guy that's dealing with his demons by being more humble instead of being more assholish.

Yep. I listen to his radio show a bit he is very honest and open. It is refreshing.

Thanks for posting this. Twenty-year-old Lydon had a scary amount of menacing charisma married to a raw and bitter intelligence. In a different era, he would have been political agitator and/or terrorist.

Great find Marky, thanks. I've only seen about half of that clip before, if that. Great quality too.

Shame the dude never found a systematic critique to anchor his understanding of the world. He distrusts socialism because the first gasps of neoliberalism was defining the Labour government of the 70s, so he's been vulnerable to the rightward drift that has brought him to pathetic Farage-isms lately.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

His understandable bitterness and suspicion of power sent him to the false liberty of neoliberalism. He's a teenage libertarian who never made the effort to critically evaluate his beliefs. That he's succeeded materially under that system has also undoubtedly clouded his vision of whether it's actually just. That painful documentary where he's on the bus complaining about what's become of London—well, John, how and why do you think that's happened? That he spouts peace and love and freedom, yet expresses sympathy with monsters suggests he's not as suspicious of power as he claims.

Yes agreed mate. It's a shame that the footage of Anarchy that makes up that clip has been wiped by the BBC.

Because it is another version of the track. My guess is it's one of the many Wessex takes they cut.
