Calling Marky and all PIL experts. Is the full 1979 interview and performance of Chant from ITV's Check It Out circulating on video?
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

I don't think so. A few years back it was up on YouTube but it's been removed and just an edited version is available.

Fantastic. Great version of "Chant," Lydon in diva mode, and "glad I didn't draw the short straw." :lol:

Years since I've seen that. I'm sure though the whole segment starts with your old mate Mensi slagging off Lydon for selling out.

No mate, I have the full episode. Only Mond gets stuck into Johnny as seen in the clip above. There was an ad break before PIL come on.

Levene. What a waste. Look at those chord shapes he's playing. Straight up classical fingering.

Fucker was tuned into something very deep. And the smack washed it all away.

I thought it was just the same clip after Chant where the band walk off. But it's the full clip nice one mate.

If Universal had that footage then that version of Chant would've made the Metal Box box set. They included Death Disco from TOTP.

The guys at Universal mustn't have a mate who has access to the ITV archives. ;)

That clip also reinforces how immune to history the band was at that point. It could have been released this year for all a person would know. It's just full-on weirdo music apart from anything around it.

This is what set them apart at this time. That attitude that said "we'll make whatever music we want to and are capable of" fuck the current trend and what the record label thinks or if it has any commercial appeal. Of course you have to take into account it was Johnny Rottens new group so he could have released the sound of him taking a shot and it would've sold. Which seems all the more remarkable that "Public Image" was/is such an amazing first single.
