31 Songs Of Halloween: Public Image Ltd.: Graveyard

17.10.16



Graveyard was the instrumental side-D closer of Public Image Ltd.'s notorious sophomore album, known simply as Metal Box, the original version of which was comprised of three 12-inch EPs played at 45rpm, and later issued as Second Edition on four 12-inch records at 33rpm with a different track order.

Graveyard was later, with the addition of lyrics, transformed into Another, which was used as the B-side to the single Memories. According to guitarist Keith Levene the guitar parts of the song were mostly improvised and for them he got carried away by Jah Wobble's bassline and Richard Dudanski's drumming.

The album did fairly well in the UK charts, but did not enter the US charts at all, as there were no singles from it released in the USA; a fact absolutely irrelevant, because Metal Box / Second Edition is a landmark of the post punk genre anyway, and one of the greatest records of all time.
