Flowers of Romance

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.


Kudos, Pop Music

What do you think?

  1. I can remember dancing to this at The Mudd Club, Danceteria and the old Peppermint Lounge…GREAT song. Great album. Insane times.
