Of all the unlikely bands to come to China, Public Image Limited must be prretty high on the list. Nonetheless, Sam and I saw them in the thrillingly cramped Yugoing Yishan, normal capacity around 300, tonight twice that. Lydon was on good form: reassuringly sneering, but in a positive way - an odd paradox. We 'ligged' backstage afterwards where he held court. Yes, he pulled faces and played the cynical court jester but actually he was quite gracious with his fans and seemed positive about being here.
