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!

    My father is very groovy and, despite the fact that I am his step-daughter, never gets mad at me, unless I deserve it like the time I left a Popsicle stick on his golf club bag and he tied me to the radiator and left me there for three days because my mom was visiting my aunt Edna and he was on a drunk and forgot about me. And then there’s the time he wanted me to set him up with my friend Bernice who had earlier gotten me in trouble with Ms. Beaufort…

  96. What a great prize!

  97. Don’t give this to one of them ‘sensitive’ American types… Only the Brits are man enough for this! :-)

  98. This album is one of the all-time classic examples of an artist completely breaking away from his past and reinventing himself as something new and better. Love it. BTW, what the heck is a “tip-on” gatefold sleeve? I get the gatefold part, but the “tip-on” part has me very confused.

  99. I can feel Jahs basslines in every one of me molecules

  100. Throwing my hat in the ring…

  101. I almost bought a test pressing of this album at a record collectors show on Sunday. The seller didn’t want to negotiate on a more reasonable price, so I walked…

  141. 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!

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

  143. Sex is oglee…

  144. Hey y’all! ;*
