Secret gig next week

PiL and Orbital are to play a top secret event in London to launch annual Quietus wallet busting event Record Store Day. On Monday, March 19th PiL will play live and Orbital DJ at the bash, which will also be streamed live on Boiler Room TV via the Record Store Day website.

Said John Lydon of the event, "The destruction of the music industry is because people can't buy records easily. A record is for life. A download is a lack of life. A poor substitute for a real wife!" while Orbital's Paul Hartnoll said "We're looking forward to DJing at the Record Store Day launch event next week and showcasing some of our new album. It’s a privilege to be asked to be involved and to promote local record stores up and down the country."

Details of this year's limited edition vinyl for Record Store Day will be announced at the party. Record Store Day takes place on Saturday April 21st, 2012. Keep your eyes peeled to the Quietus for special features in the run up to this most excellently expensive weekend.
