Misrhymed Song Lyrics : " Rise ". I could be wrong, I could be right I could be black, I could be white I could be black, I could be white I could be white, I could be black. Ok, the first two lines rhymed, now what makes him think 'white' and 'black' rhyme in the next two?

This Is What You Want This Is What You Get The Rolling Stone Album Guide. John Lydon , Bill Laswell. Australia Kent Music Report . We had a fuckin' good drummer called Jim Walker, but he fucked off after a few months [in early ] and it just fell apart.
Somehow it had sort of death throes that produced a couple of blinding albums. The departure of Jim Walker made way for a series of new drummers. He was replaced by Karl Burns formerly and latterly of the Fall.
Following sessions took place in which Martin Atkins would show up for an 'audition' and discover himself in the middle of a recording session with the tape rolling. The recording was released on Metal Box as "Bad Baby". Metal Box was originally released as three untitled rpm inch cm records packaged in a metal box resembling a film canister with an embossed PiL logo on the lid it was later reissued in more conventional packaging as a double LP set, Second Edition , and features the band's trademark hypnotic dub reggae bass lines, glassy, arpeggiated guitar, and bleak, paranoid, stream of consciousness vocals.
Metal Box is starker than First Issue , more spread out and uncompromising, and scattered with bits of ambient synthesiser. The design for Metal Box was the brainchild of Dennis Morris. PiL had a series of contentious live shows and behind-the-scenes controversies during their first American tour in Their appearance at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles was fraught with hostile exchanges between Lydon and the audience.
Tensions offstage mounted as well. PiL demanded that they work only with local promoters, bucking the promotional machinery of Warner Bros. Records , their American label. This business arrangement pitted the band and CD Presents in a pitched battle against San Francisco-based promoter Bill Graham , who negotiated with concert venue owners and San Francisco government officials to deprive PiL of a concert location.
Fearing public outbursts if the show was cancelled, San Francisco city officials instead opted to allow the CD Presents-sponsored event to proceed. On 17 May , the group appeared on the teenage music show American Bandstand at the invitation of host Dick Clark.
Clark would go on to name the performance among his top AB favorites. The interview was awkward and combative at times , and ended with Snyder apologising to the audience: "The interesting part is, is that we talked to these two gentlemen a couple of weeks ago, a pre-interview, apparently that went all just fine and it made great sense, and what I read about them this afternoon, but somehow it got a little lost in translation tonight.
But that's probably my fault. Lydon shook it off by saying "it's just entertainment", and the completely normal interview proceeded without difficulty. On this release's album sleeve, the band's name and all of the track titles were translated into French. Lydon, Levene and Jeanette Lee were joined by a new drummer, year-old jazz player Sam Ulano, who had been recruited for the gig from a bar, having apparently never heard the band before.
While something reminiscent of but clearly different from PiL improvised behind the screen, PiL records were played simultaneously through the PA. The promoters cleared the hall and cancelled the next night's show, and a local media furore ignited in New York. Later in , Jah Wobble left the band and was not formally replaced. The resulting album was notable for its almost complete lack of bass parts.
Martin Atkins, who had initially joined at the tail end of the Metal Box sessions, was re-recruited to drum on The Flowers of Romance. Levene had by then largely abandoned guitar in favour of synthesiser, picking up a new technique although owing a debt to Allen Ravenstine of Pere Ubu. Atkins' propulsive marching band -style drumming, the lack of bass and guitar, and Lydon's increasing lyrical abstraction made this LP a difficult listen for rock fans, and contemporary reviews expressed great confusion.
Its forceful drum sound was widely copied, notably by Phil Collins ,  though the drum sound was initially influenced by Collins' own work on Peter Gabriel III. The track "Francis Massacre" was partially inspired by Lydon's incarceration in Mountjoy Prison and the track "Hymie's Him" began life as an instrumental piece intended for the score of Michael Wadleigh 's werewolf film Wolfen.
Atkins, like Levene and Lydon, was a control freak, but Levene had the disadvantage of having repeatedly fired Atkins over apparent trifles, and of being incapacitated on heroin much of the time—so when conflict arose again, Levene was the one to go [ citation needed ]. An aborted fourth album recorded in was later released by Levene as Commercial Zone , which included contributions from bass player Pete Jones. Lydon and Atkins claim that Levene stole the master tapes.
Atkins stayed on through a live album one of the first digital live albums ever recorded , Live in Tokyo — in which PiL consisted of him, Lydon, and a band of session musicians—and left in , following the release of This Is What You Want This Is What You Get This album consists of re-recorded versions of five songs from Commercial Zone several of which feature a horn section and three new tracks four songs from Commercial Zone were not re-recorded for the new album.
PiL was moving towards a more commercial pop music and dance music direction, and while many new fans found PiL, little of their original audience or sound remained. During this interim period, the band released the single " This Is Not a Love Song " in , the song's lyric lampooning the ire from some fans and the music press over the band's movement towards a more commercial style.
