Public Image Ltd. “First Issue” Test Pressing Giveaway

This month will see the 100th release from Light in the Attic Records and as part of their celebratory blitz, they’ve agreed to allow OMGVinyl to give away a test pressing of that release to one of our dear readers. Public Image Ltd, the band started by Johnny Rotten after the implosion of the Sex Pistols, released it’s first album in 1978, and here First Issue is lovingly reissued by Light in the Attic. A seminal release, at the time deemed too “un-commercial” for release in the United States (hey, we’re a sensitive bunch here). This reissue comes with the usual high specs from LITA: 180-gram vinyl, tip-on gatefold sleeve and plenty of extra inserts like posters, newsprint adverts, buttons and a patch. Pick it up at and see our giveaway details below.

To enter the giveaway, just comment on this post. A winner will be picked at random in about 24 hours (sometime Friday morning). Please only enter once, we will be checking for double-ups. If your comment doesn’t show up right away, be patient, it is probably awaiting moderation.

Contest is closed, thanks for all the entries. We will contact the winner early next week!

  41. PiL, that is to say Public Image, Ltd. a band which started in 1978 after the Sex Pistols demise and Lydons ne Rottens subsequent diassociation with that band and their so-called svengali Malcolm McLaren in my humble opinion (trust me; i ain’t humble!) is not PiL without either Keith Levene or Jah Wobble. it’s as simple and cut-and-dried as that!

  42. Thanks for this opportunity! What a great album.

  43. Sex is oglee…

  44. Hey y’all! ;*
