This astonishing, fantastic video raises an important question: how is it that I've never actually heard all of Second Edition? I've loved these two songs for years, and what else I've heard of PiL is at the very worst engaging, so how have they fallen into my blind spot? I'm not sure why it never crossed my mind before that "Poptones" and "Careering" are, duh, from the same record, or that said record is at least potentially the cold flipside to one of my favourite records of all time, the Fall's immortal Hex Enduction Hour. Basically, I know there are too many bands out there to check them all out, but what the hell have I been thinking?
