this deluxe reissue includes the remastered album, unreleased live material, demos, outtakes and remixes – all housed in the striking, minimal artwork of the original.

released in 1986, Lydon would later remark that it was "almost like a solo album" as he was working on his own with several hired musicians. Jazz saxophonist Ornette Coleman came into the studio while the album was being recorded and commented that Lydon sang like he played the saxophone. Lydon said it was, "still the best thing anyone's ever said to me." As well as rare and unreleased mixes from the album and single’s the deluxe edition includes the original demos recorded pre-Laswell with the 1984-85 PiL live band all of which are previously unheard. Two 12” mixes of John Lydon’s groundbreaking collaboration with hip hop pioneer Afrika Bamabaataa are also included as bonus tracks.
