Metal Box + Insert - VG+

P.I.L. Metal Box (Original 1979 UK Limited Edition 3 x 12" LP film can-style metal box, an era-defining classic with Lydon's fearless vocal delivery, Levene's guitar slashing, Jim Walker's metronomic drumming & Wobble's cavernous bass, soaking up everything from Krautrock, punk & dub - the ultimate in 'post-punk'. Comes housed in a custom made 16mm film canister with PIL embossed logo, catalogue sticker on the back & complete with the plain white paper dividers & A5 tracklist/credits insert. The metal box grades VG+ with natural tarnishing & some faint areas of rust creeping in. The three vinyl discs have some light cosmetic surface scuffs, most notable on side 1, but these have little or no effect on play - Essential! METAL1)
