Re: Îòâåò: [thewire] 5ive+
- 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...
