The Flowers of Romance is the third studio album by English experimental rock band Public Image Ltd, released on 10 April 1981 by record label Virgin. The first studio album recorded following the departure of founding bassist Jah Wobble, The Flowers of Romance found PiL delving further into an experimental sound. Flowers was recorded mainly by singer John Lydon and guitarist Keith Levene, both of whom made heavy use of percussion and various tape and processing effects.

Incidentally, Public Image Ltd were actually an incorporated company. This professionalism was a big fuck-off to punk’s chaos that had camouflaged how lead singer John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten, the former lead singer of the Sex Pistols) was being ripped off by the Pistols’ manager, Malcolm McLaren, financially and emotionally. The Flowers of Romance spat at their critics with intensity and twisted clarity. In Phenagen, Lydon stubbornly intones, Empty promises help to forget/No more, no more/Repair the damages you made/Amen, amen, amen, amen. He massacres the Mass as only a Catholic can, and the record’s pain might be a form of expiation, cathartic confession of damage done.

The Flowers Of Romance is the third studio album by Public Image Lt. released in the spring of 1981 by Warner Bros. Records in North America and Virgin Records elsewhere. With bassist Jah Wobble long gone from the band, and drummer Martin Atkins splitting his time between PiL and another band, Brian Brain, drums and percussion became the primary pulse of PiL’s music, replacing Wobble’s trademark reggae-influenced bass of the first two albums

As opposed to the axis of throbbing bass and guitar slashings of Metal Box, The Flowers of Romance is centralized on razor-sharp drums and typically haranguing vocals. No dubwise grooves here - bassist Jah Wobble was kicked out prior to the recording for ripping off PiL backing tracks for his solo material.

The Flowers Of Romance. Percussive 1981 album, recorded as a stripped-back trio. Includes "Flowers of Romance". PiL) (PUBLIC IMAGE LTD). The new Japanese import SACD of Public Image Ltd's THE FLOWERS OF ROMANCE has restored my faith in the format absolutely. This is the best sounding SACD I've heard since the Can discography. For this technology to hit its fullest potential, it requires music with a certain amount of space, music that uses silences - and, with the exception of the closing track, this album delivers that in spades.

Public Image Limited turned out to be a collapsing entity. First to go was bassist Jah Wobble. Rather than find a substitute for Wobble, the band soldiered on with drummer Martin Atkins banging his way to immortality
