Post Keith Levene (P.I.L)
on: November 11, 2012, 14:24

I'm putting together a post on a copy of the Sex Pistols/Steve Jones Les Paul. And yet again I'm having to admit to myself how much more I love Lydon's later band, P.I.L., than the Pistols. I think Keith Levene is one of the most under-celebrated players of the era, and that the sort of stuff he played here:

live version:
lip-syched studio version:

...directly anticipates several playing and arranging techniques for which the Edge generally gets credit. I mean, does that foreshadow "I Will Follow" by two years, or what?

Brilliant tune.
I lost track of Levene after Second Edition -- didn't he play a metal-bodied guitar?

Brilliant indeed! It's the sound of the ’80s — but it's still the ’70s!

The Wikipedia entry on Levene is pretty interesting. Drugs were involved.
