Public Image Ltd. Returns

I suppose it was only a matter of time John Lydon put PiL back together, right? I mean, he just never stops.

Lydon aka Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten has revived Public Image Limited, the post-punk outfit he formed in 1978 upon the Pistols' demise. The group, who haven't played live since 1992, are playing out to commemorate the band's 1978 epic sophomore effort, Metal Box.

According to NME, Lydon will be joined by Damned guitarist Lu Edmonds, former Slits drummer Bruce Smith, and bassist Scott Firth four five UK dates this December.

Wish I could see one of these shows. I spent much of my high school and college years listening to Second Edition and the like. It'd be fab to finally see Lydon live.

Also in John Lydon news, he's a bit broken up over the recent Oasis split. Awww, I always knew he had a heart.
