Product Description:

LIVE IN TOKYO (1983), the second live Public Image Limited album in three years, presents the listener with a different side of the band. The PIL captured here is very energetic. Even more surpisingly, John Lydon seems interested in having the audience like him. After castigating Christianity in "Religion," he goes so far as to greet his audience--in Japanese!
Clearly riding on the chart success of "(This is Not a) Love Song," Lydon and Company's live version, the record's standout track, incites the previously quiet audience to sing along. The crowd continues to do just that, even after the song has concluded. In turn, the band plays a reprise of a few choruses for the fans. During the second half of LIVE IN TOKYO--"Death Disco," "Bad Life," "Banging the Door," and "Under the House"--the audience's excitement at the dynamic workouts given to their PIL favorites is mirrored in the band's enthusiastic performance. This is especially true on the last track, which, though shortened considerably from the studio version, features amazing drumming from Martin Atkins.
