(Dub) 8 : The Photo That Started It All |WORK|

Following the Sex Pistols' break-up in 1978, photographer Dennis Morris suggested that Lydon travel to Jamaica with him and Virgin Records head Richard Branson, where Branson would be scouting for emerging reggae musicians.[11] Branson also flew American band Devo to Jamaica, aiming to install Lydon as lead singer in the band. Devo declined the offer.[12]

The single "Public Image" was widely seen as diatribe against Malcolm McLaren and his perceived manipulation of Lydon during his career with the Sex Pistols. The track "Low Life" (with its accusatory lyrics of "Egomaniac traitor", "You fell in love with your ego" and "Bourgeoisie anarchist") has also been regarded as an attack on McLaren, although Lydon has stated that the lyrics refer to Sid Vicious. The two-part song "Religion" refers contemptuously to Roman Catholicism; Lydon came up with the lyrics when he was part of the Sex Pistols but he claims the other members of the band were reluctant to use them. The closing track "Fodderstompf", heavily influenced by dub, comprises nearly eight minutes of a circular bass riff, played over a Lydon/Wobble double act lampooning public outrage, love songs and teenage apathy, whilst openly acknowledging the lack of effort being put into it. The track culminates with the sound of a fire extinguisher being let off in the recording studio by Wobble. The photography for the album was shot by Dennis Morris who also created the PiL logo. .mw-parser-output .side-boxmargin:4px 0;box-sizing:border-box;border:1px solid #aaa;font-size:88%;line-height:1.25em;background-color:#f9f9f9; .side-box-abovebelow,.mw-parser-output .side-box-textpadding:0.25em .side-box-imagepadding:2px 0 2px 0.9em; .side-box-imagerightpadding:2px 0.9em 2px 0;text-align:center@media(min-width:500px).mw-parser-output .side-box-flexdisplay:flex; .side-box-textflex:1@media(min-width:720px).mw-parser-output .side-box-rightclear:right;float:right; .listen .listen-plainborder:none; .listen-embeddedwidth:100%;margin:0;border-width:1px 0 0 0; .listen-embedded .listen-headerpadding:2px .listen-file-headerpadding:4px .listen .listen .mw-tmh-playermax-width:100%@media(max-width:719px).mw-parser-output .listenclear:both@media(min-width:720px).mw-parser-output .listen:not(.listen-noimage) .listen-leftoverflow:visible; .listen-centerfloat:none;margin-left:auto;margin-right:auto

In 1985, Lydon recorded a song entitled "World Destruction" in collaboration with Afrika Bambaataa's band Time Zone and producer Bill Laswell. PiL's 1986 album release was simply entitled Album, Compact Disc, or Cassette, depending on the format. The cover's blue typeface and spartan design parodied generic brands; promotional photos featured Lydon in a "generic blue" suit surrounded by generic foods and drinking generic beer. Produced by Bill Laswell (despite Lydon-fuelled faction and disunion[citation needed]) and with many of Laswell's usual rotating cast of musicians, it also featured guitar solos by Steve Vai, considered by Vai himself to be some of his best work.[citation needed] Jonas Hellborg, solo bassist and at the time, member of John McLaughlin's reformed band, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, played bass on the album. Jazz great Tony Williams and legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker drummed on the album, which also featured Ryuichi Sakamoto of the Japanese electropop group Yellow Magic Orchestra. Controversy reared again, with claims that the album cover and title concept had been stolen from the San Francisco noise/punk band, Flipper, contemporaries of PiL, whose album, Album, featured a similarly unadorned sleeve. Flipper retaliated by naming their next album, Public Flipper Limited.

Seven years!? You got that right. In 2023, I begin another year with the incredible privilege of calling myself a full-time, professional photographer. It feels crazy to say that! It has been a thrilling career thus far and I am so excited for what the years and months ahead will bring about photographically. My best work is yet to come, for sure!
