We are very thrilled to bring you something that ties two of our passions together – music and cycling.
We have teamed up with the magnificent Milltag, purveyors of top quality cycling apparel and John Lydon’s band, Public Image Ltd. (PiL), to bring you a limited edition cycling jersey.
According to the Velominati, one of the principal aspects of cycling is that if you look good, you feel good. Or as French poet Paul Fournel put it, to look good is already to go fast.
So, you should pay attention to your public image and with this in mind we have produced a limited edition, performance jersey that will ensure you will look your best every time you pull it on.
The design takes its inspiration from the generic brand artwork of their hit 1986 album, Album, featuring the classic PiL logo along with lyrics from one of their biggest hits, Rise.
The jerseys are available to order now in sizes Small to XXXL at the Milltag shop – click here.
For delivery before Christmas 2016, order by October 17th.
Orders placed after this date and before the end of 2016 will be delivered in February 2017.
About the jersey
The jerseys are hand-made performance jerseys manufactured in Europe using the best materials. Constructed using hi-tech Coolplus fabric throughout they are designed to keep you fresh, cool and comfortable and cut to be aerodynamic yet fit normal cyclists. There’s a full length hidden zip, silicone gripper on the bottom hem to keep it in place and a hidden security pocket in the three rear pockets.
Public Image Ltd. (PiL), fronted by John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols) were not post-punk, not new wave, they were Public Image Ltd. The band emerged in 1978 after the break-up of the Pistols and have released 10 albums to date including the classic albums such as Metal Box, The Flowers Of Romance, This is PiL and 2015’s What The World Needs Now.
On 28th October 2016, PiL reissue the seminal albums Metal Box and Album. Metal Box was the band’s second album, originally released on 23rd November 1979 and Album was their 5th studio album and was originally released on 3rd February 1986, marking 2016 as its 30th anniversary.
The albums will both be issued as 4 CD and 4 vinyl LP super-deluxe box sets, as well as digitally. The editions will include rare and previously unreleased material along with a live disc. The CD versions feature additional tracks to the vinyl editions due to running time restrictions, however, the vinyl edition will include a download card for all tracks on the CD versions. Metal Box will be issued in a square metal tin (CD & LP) (the 1979 original was issued in a round metal film canister) with an embossed PiL logo. Album will be issued in a square card box with de-bossed artwork. Both super-deluxe editions will include a 72 page booklet together with an exclusive poster, art-prints (LP version) and postcards (CD version).
