John is interviewed in the new issue of Q Magazine (December, issue 233). This is the previously mentioned interview which was held back from last month… It's a pretty entertaining read, although the journo does try his best to drop in the odd snide comment or two, however, as you'd expect, John is on good form; "Don't be a smart arse, because I will defeat you…" All good stuff though, and well worth checking out.

John Lydon. “What makes Britain Great?”

Another new JohnLydon.Com interview now on-line! Two interviews in two weeks, we spoil you Monsieur! This time John talks about his new TV series, the state of the nation, the state of our TV & media, and the “great” British public! Charlie are you listening?

 
 

© Canvas 2005Rotten & Reynebeau: "What Makes Britain Great", the 5 part series starts tomorrow, Friday 28th October, 20:45 on Canvas, Belgian TV.

(updated)
 

UK viewers keep an eye out for the VH1 Classic 'Sex Pistol Special'. This is the previously mentioned VH1 show that features an extensive interview with John, along with various PiL / Pistols promo videos, plus comments from other bands such as Franz Ferdiand, Oasis, The Prodigy & Depeche Mode.

The 1 hour show premiered last Saturday, 15th October on VH1 Classic, and has been shown at various times since (including today & tomorrow). Check your local listings for full info.

Please note: The show is also being screened by VH2, and although it has been re-titled 'John Lydon's Greatest hits ', it is exactly the same show (and also separate to John's recent MTV2 'Gonzo' interview).

 
 

©BBC Heaven & EarthJohn's recent interview on BBC1's religious show 'Heaven & Earth' is now available to view in the "video archive" section of the 'Heaven & Earth' web site. Only John could call a Priest "a man in a dress in a little box" on Sunday morning religious TV and get away with it!

We've just added a couple of screen grabs from this show, along with some of John's other recent UK TV appearances, to our TV & Video Grab Gallery.

We've added a further selection of press reviews to the 'Best of British £1 Notes' mini-site. They certainly seem to have the knives out this time around, but as John says in his new interview with us, "You should never be shy of negativity, ever. So what?"
Thanks to Sarah Watson @ EMI / Virgin for the reviews

Get all the latest Rabbit from the man himself… New John Lydon interview coming very soon!

 
 

In the meantime we've added a recent interview John did with the Irish Times to the Press section of our 'Best of British £1 Notes' mini-site. You'll also find a selection of reviews, including some particularly lovely bile from The Sillygraph, and some downright stupidity from the NME. Apparently 'Warrior' sounds like Billy Idol! Are they deaf!

All is not lost, you'll find far more sensible reviews of both the CD & DVD from Fodderstompf.Com!

 
 
 
 

october 7th 2005

 

John has a feature length 'Best of British £1 Notes' interview on Virgin Radio's 'Razor Cuts', this Sunday, 9th October, 8-10pm. You can listen to the show live via Virgin's web site.

You'll be spoilt for choice because you'll also find highlights of his appearance on MTV'2 'Gonzo' - which was split over Monday and Tuesday - on the 'Best of Zane Lowe's Gonzo', this Sunday at 9-10pm.

 
 

We've added the recent Sunday Times interview, along with with various press reviews, to our 'Best of British £1 Notes' mini-site. The site will be constantly updated so keep checking back…

You can read John's interview in today's Sunday Times 'Culture' Magazine via their web site.

 
 

You will also be able to listen to John's one hour special with Gary Crowley all this week via the BBC Radio London web site. John talks in length about 'The Best of British', discussing the Pistols, PiL, his recent TV activities, and gives a full update of his forthcoming new solo album. Just click the Gary Crowley link on their site.

 
 

It's probably worth keeping an eye on the BBC's 'Heaven & Earth' web site, as they may possibly add video of John's interview from this morning's show in the near future.

 
 

The more eagle eyed among you may have noticed we recently added a whole mini web site dedicated to John’s 1997 ‘Psycho’s Path’ album; interviews, clips, song-by-song quotes from John, plus pix, lyrics, and even reviews!
The majority of the info was already available throughout the site, but it’s been brought together, along with the odd little surprise. Follow the link, or enter via the Records section.
