      Anyone else notice, in the Keith Levine article a few issues back, that
      there was no acknowledgement
      of Martin Atkins' role in "The Flowers of Romance ?" I seem to recall his
      being co-credited with much of
      the material. Indeed a wonderful record; I believe it was the first PiL
      record I heard ca. age 13.
      Sadly, I've still never heard the "Commercial Zone" version of the "This is
      what you want..." LP.
      Is bootlegging kosher on this site ? I'm a trader not a seller of course...
