    “Even Prometheus I think I preferred.” Oof. That’s gotta hurt.

    Don’t know about you, but he seems to get all pissy on Aussie media.

    Then last night on a light entertainment-esque news panel programme (The Project – Network Ten) he was being quite the sexist pig towards a female co-anchor for interrupting him and thereafter constantly complaining about the panel shouting questions at him.

    Didn’t know he was cut from the same cloth as Gene Simmons.

    Went into it wondering “What’s a Katy Perry?” Now I know.

  5. SedanChair says:

    Well that was relatively kind.

      Yes, he does seem to have softened with age. Either that or something about the situation ($?) is holding him back.

    “Interesting story”?  That’s not an interesting story, mate.  Now THIS is an interesting story…

    New rule: from now on all movies must be reviewed by Johnny Rotten and no one else.

    Look, due to my own honesty ethics, I am forced to admit that even though I loathe Katy Perry, her style, and her fans, I cannot touch the dial when her songs come on.  I. . .I sing along with them, and find them irresistibly catchy.  *sob*  Oh god, what’s happening to me?!?  Even blasting the Descendants doesn’t help!

    “[I]nteresting person with an interesting story who sings dull songs.”

    Lydon in a nutshell.  Funny, that.

      I was thinking the same thing. though some PIL stuff was good. But I suspect that had more to do with Laswell than Lydon.

        “But I suspect that had more to do with Laswell than Lydon.”

        Exactly.  I’m a big fan of the first three studio albums.  Their best qualities are because of Levene and Wobble.  The “generic” album worked because of Laswell.

        Lydon seems to be one of those people who’s quality of work really depends his collaborators.

    He did have voice training. It was ‘out there’ at the time. I even bought a cassette for self-training from the woman who worked with him. Don’t have it any longer and can’t remember her name. I can remember singing “Va va vi vi va va vi vi, va va vi vi, va!” a lot though.

    Speaking as someone who has grown ever more irascible and curmudgeonly with every passing year, it’s nice to see someone almost as old as me who has decided to live their life the opposite way.

    “Now listen! When a man is talking do not interrupt.”

    I bought the first PiL album the year it came out. Fuck that now – Lydon’s a conservative fuckwit trapped in the sexist 1970′s.

    This is not what I teach my sons or daughter.

    Well, that was definitely fun. Now, go watch John and PIL shred American Bandstand with Dick Clark’s blessing. So odd.
