Public Image Limited, James "Blood" Ulmer: Palladium, New York NY
Richard Grabel, New Musical Express, 14 June 1980
NOBODY EXPECTS Public Image Limited to sell massive amounts of vinyl to the American public. So to see the "Sold Out" sign on the Palladium marquee was exciting, and heartening. Of course a lot of tickets were sold to people who just wanted a glimpse of the "legendary" Johnny Rotten, but it was more than that. PiL took a large theatre full of people and got them to listen and respond to something different. That meant a lot.
