Public Image Ltd. is working on a “comprehensive, career-spanning” documentary about itself, and is turning to fans to help track down “never before seen” photographs as well as rare film and video footage of John Lydon and Co. from any time period. If any such footage is used, PiL promises those fans will be credited in the film’s end titles.
No word yet on when this documentary will see the light of day, but PiL — which Lydon reactivated 2009 for touring and an eventual new album, its first in 20 years — is urging anyone who thinks they might have suitable material to contact PiLarchive@gmail.com.
Here’s the band’s full statement about the doc:
PiL Documentary – we need your help!
Calling all PiL fans!
We are in the process of making a comprehensive, career-spanning documentary film about Public Image Ltd. and we would like your help!
We are looking for never before seen photographs as well as film and video footage of PiL and John Lydon from any time period. If you have ANYTHING that you think may be of interest please drop us a note. You will be credited in the end titles if we use your footage.
Do you have a snapshot at The Rainbow on Christmas 1978?
Do you have a photo souvenir of the infamous Ritz riot show? Do you have a picture with or without John showing your injuries after being hit by a flying object!
Did you shoot video of John signing your PiL records at the Monsters of Alternative Rock Tour in 1989?
We know PiL fans are most creative people. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated. We salute you lollypop mob.
If you can help please send us an email to: PiLarchive@gmail.com
