Is it just me or does it feel as if the folks at Fun Fun Fun Fest put together a festival that is catering to my own wants and desires? Taking a look at the schedule this year it’s mind boggling how many bands from earlier decades that are dear to my musical heart are bunched up with current favorites who are blazing new grounds for bands of the future.
Quite honestly the only reason that I want to check out this band is because of that old fart in the photo..John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten). The guy was in The Sex Pistols and is one of the mouthiest, cockiest guys in the business and I can’t wait to see what might come out of his mouth. Forming Public Image LTD after the demise of The Sex Pistols, Lydon launched what many claim to be the post-punk era. Of course there are a handful of songs that Public Image LTD put out that I jammed back in the day, and while I’m not sure that I want to relive that chapter in my life, maybe hearing these songs once again will remind me of a time when I wasn’t as jaded about music as I’ve come to be later in life. Maybe there is hope in the form of a mouthy Brit.
Public Image LTD. play Orange Stage Sat 7:50 p.m.
