groundbreaking doesn't even start to describe pil's album from 1978; surrounded by polemic on its release, this is arguably where post-punk started.

released in december 1978 after the sex pistols' break-up, "first issue" is considered by many to be the first post-punk album. after the punk hangover, john lydon set out to create a new sound that would stand apart from what other contemporary bands were doing, fully aware that it wouldn't be understood by many of his old followers. for this he counted on the help of ex-clash guitarist keith levene, first-time bassist jah wobble & canadian drummer jim walker.
