This single is a perfect representative of the Post-Punk-Nu-Disco era of the late 70's and early 80's. Here, ex-Rotten John Lydon and his Public Image Limited band turn disco patterns into either punky distorded Funk on the "1/2 Mix" or experimental noisy minimalism on the "Megga Mix" which sounds like it was recorded in your bathroom.
