Willkommen Leser, Down-Loader, Lurker und Teilnehmer alle.

It might have come to your notice that I'm not a regular poster of love and understanding, which you'll just kinda have to get used to. I will however, now and again, have bursts of creativity and if it was to please the massed hordes, who chose to visit this insignificant page, to supply some input on the direction and type of music you would like to sample (before going out and buying yourself a copy) this little communication will not have been in vain.

I will also say now that some of the outstanding music already available to sample will be reaching their 30 days without a click threshold, where by they're deleted by the host.


Many thanks for reading this far...and please feel free to interact.

I wanted to start this journey with a BANG!






Metal Box is the second album by Public Image Ltd, released by Virgin Records on 23 November 1979. The album was a departure from PiL's relatively conventional début First Issue, released in 1978, with the band moving into a more avant-garde sound characterised by John Lydon's cryptic vocals, Jah Wobble's propulsive dub-inspired basslines, and the abrasively "metallic" guitar sound developed by guitarist Keith Levene. Metal Box is widely regarded as a landmark of post punk. Released as a three 12 inch single set in a metal film can completely anonymous save an embossed PiL logo, the cutting of the grooves themselves were so widely separated from each other that they’re visible to the naked eye. This encourages the tracks to boom out in analogue warmth and fullness; deemed necessary by Jah Wobble’s domineering and lush contributions in the low end department. A beautiful and barbed album whose power is still a formidable one, even now. And will be for a very long time.

  1. Thanks for this! I have Second Edition, the Metal Box CD version and the PiL box, but I am always interested in hearing the original version of this classic. Heard it in the record store, but couldn't afford the collector price...

    1. Thanks Anonymous.
      I hope you enjoyed listening to this awesome vinyl rip. For anyone else thinking about downloading Metal Box, please note that it was originally ripped to high resolution and high quality lossless 24-bit FLAC audio and then downsized to MP3 to fully flesh out all the sonic grooves...this could quite possibly be the best rip of this outstanding album currently on the www
