Flowers of Romance
April 11, 2011
Our friends at New Wave Time Warp remind us that Public Image Ltd.’s Flowers of Romance album came out thirty years ago yesterday. Its un-rockist vibe blew my mind when I purchased it — thanks to the guidance of my friend John Cradock — at Newbury Comics, in Harvard Square, as a 9th- or 10th-grader.
“Four Enclosed Walls” is the album’s startling opening track.
