This Is PiL

This is PiL is the ninth studio album by British rock band Public Image Ltd. Their first studio album in 20 years, it was released on 28 May 2012 on band's own label, PiL Official. A limited deluxe edition of the album was released with a live DVD entitled There is a PiL in Heaven. Public Image Ltd returned after a 17-year hiatus. John Lydon financed the reunion using money he earned doing a UK TV commercial for Country Life butter, he said "The money that I earned from that has now gone – lock stock and barrel – into reforming PiL". In November 2009, when asked if PiL would re-enter the studio to record new material Lydon said "Yes, if I raise the money from this, I most will." The new line-up began touring in December 2009. On 1 July 2011, PiL entered Steve Winwood's studio in the Cotswolds and began recording new material. Lydon said "it was the only place, it was this barn, in the middle of the Cotswolds, with nothing for inspiration but sheep – and I don't like sheep particularly." PiL left the studio in August and in September it was revealed that they had completed their new album.

In February 2012, it was announced that a 4 track EP entitled One Drop would be released for Record Store Day on 21 April and This Is PiL would be released on 28 May. Upon its release, This is PiL received favourable reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 66 based on 25 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews". Alexis Petridis of The Guardian gave the album four out of five stars, stating that the album "both recalls their glory days and contradicts them at the same time". Mojo's Andrew Perry said "it's a joy to hear Lydon in fine voice, getting stuck into thorny matters with his unique, raw-nerve gusto, backed by a cookin' band". Andrew Ryce of Pitchfork considered it "not terrible" and "hollow" but as "a reminder of the band's former genius and a treat for longtime fans who should appreciate at least half the album as solid PiL work". Paste considered the arrangements as "dull and unforgivably sluggish" before describing Lydon's voice as "a scratchy, breathless whimper".

In the United Kingdom, the album entered at number 35 at the end of the first week, before falling to number 89 on its second week. The iTunes download of the album features an exclusive 15-minute video filmed during the recording of the album at Steve Winwood's Cotswolds studio in 2011, directed and filmed by John "Rambo" Stevens and Walter Jaquiss.

Musjid (horse)

Musjid was a British Thoroughbred racehorse and sire. In 1859, he won both of his races including The Derby, in which he landed a huge gamble for his owner despite concerted efforts to prevent him winning. Musjid never ran again, he was retired to stud, where he made little impression before his early death in 1865 from a stomach rupture. Musjid was a "stylish-looking" brown horse with a white star on his head, he was bred by Lord Scarborough at his Tickhill stud in Yorkshire. Musjid was sent to the Doncaster sales, where he failed to find a buyer willing to pay the reserve price of 300 guineas, he was sold for £200 in a private deal to Sir Joseph Hawley, with a proviso that Sir Joseph would pay an additional £500 if the colt won the Derby. Musjid was sent into training with George Manning, who trained Hawley's colt Beadsman to win the 1858 derby, at his stable at Cannons Heath, near Kingsclere in Hampshire. Manning's stable was a converted barn and was not noted for its hygiene: a stagnant pond "where frogs and beetles revel" stood close by the entrance and was blamed for causing outbreaks of fever and "malaria" among the inmates.

Musjid was the subject of positive rumours before his debut, but ran disappointingly and finished third to North Lincoln in the New Stakes at Ascot on 2 June. On 17 June he started 5/4 favourite for the Mottisford Stakes at Stockbridge Racecourse and won by a length from Sir Hercules. One source claims that he won a race at Newmarket that year. After his win at Stockbridge, the New Sporting Magazine noted that while he seemed to lack the pace to be a leading two-year-old, he looked like a potential Derby horse. In the spring of 1862, Musjid won a match race at Newmarket in which he defeated a filly owned by Lord Glasgow, he did not run again before the Derby, but his impressive form in training gallops against a good colt named Gallus was enough to establish him as a leading contender, he was the subject of heavy wagering by his owner, who stood to win a reported £75,000. At Epsom, Musjid started 9/4 favourite in a field of thirty runners. Many bookmakers faced paying out huge sums if Musjid won and attempts were made to ensure his defeat.

Several jockeys attempted to box in the favourite while others, including the rider of the joint-second-favourite The Promised Land, were alleged to have deliberately “pulled” their horses to ensure a win for the outsider Marionette. In a rough and unsatisfactory race, Wells managed to extricate Musjid from a bad position and produced the colt with a strong late challenge to take the lead well inside the final furlong and win by half a length from Marionette and Trumpeter. Confusion ensued when the racecourse judge misread the finish and awarded second place to a colt named Ticket-of-Leave who had not finished in the first ten: the correct finishing order was only established after an inquiry. Hawley's winning bets on the colt were reported to be the highest paid out to an individual on a single race. In October, a match race between Musjid and The Promised Land was arranged for Newmarket. Musjid, however was having training problems and it was decided to withdraw him from the race and pay a forfeit.

Musjid's worsening leg trouble meant that he was retired to stud. Musjid stood as a stallion at Sir Joseph's stud at Leybourne Grange in Kent, he had little opportunity to prove himself as a sire as he died in 1865 from a "rupture in the stomach" at the age of nine. He sired one good horse in Vagabond, who won the Trial Stakes in 1869, but who, as a gelding, was incapable of continuing Musjid’s sire-line

Pendleton Woolen Mills

Pendleton Woolen Mills is an American textile manufacturing company based in Portland, United States. It is known for woolen clothing; the company's roots began in 1863 when Thomas Lister Kay made a transcontinental trek to the west coast and began working in Oregon's woolen mills. He went on to open his own woolen mill, the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill in Oregon. Kay was a weaver by trade, he had worked in various textile mills on the east coast of the United States. Before opening his own mill in Salem, he helped to set up only the second mill in Oregon at Brownsville. Kay brought his oldest daughter, Martha Ann "Fannie" Kay, into the business and after learning the operation and management of the mill, she became her father's assistant. In 1876 Fannie married retail merchant C. P. Bishop; this proved to be a great benefit to Kay's company and to the Bishop enterprises in the combination of manufacturing and retail sales. The Bishops passed their expertise and knowledge to their three sons: Clarence and Chauncey.

In 1909 the family reopened the defunct Pendleton Woolen Mills. The town of Pendleton, Oregon backed the family in their new business venture and the Bishops’ company took over the name Pendleton Woolen Mills; the move to eastern Oregon made sense for the business because eastern Oregon was sheep country and having wool producers near the mills allowed the mills to cut production costs. The town of Pendleton is a major railhead for the Columbia River Plateau and allowed convenient shipping for the growing business. Pendleton photographer Walter S. Bowman captured early 20th century images of the mill's interior and its workers; the mill now owned by the Bishops had been built in 1893 and had been a wool scouring plant where raw wool is scrubbed and packed before shipping out to the textile mills. In 1895 the mill was enlarged and converted into a textile mill and in 1896 began making Native-American trade blankets—geometric patterned robes for Native-American men and shawls for Native-American women in the area—the Umatilla, Nez Perce and Walla Walla tribes.

That business failed and the plant stood idle until the Bishop family, spurred by Fannie Kay Bishop, purchased it. When the Bishop assumed ownership, they built a new mill with the help of the town of Pendleton, which issued bonds for the mill's construction; the family resumed the production of Jacquard blankets and introduced new designs and patterns to their product line. They changed the construction of the mill's blankets. Prior to 1909 the blankets had round corners; the Bishop blankets featured square corners. Pendleton round corner blankets are coveted by vintage Pendleton blanket collectors; the company expanded their trade from the local Native-American tribes of the Columbia River area, to the Navajo and Zuni peoples of the American Southwest. To do this, they enlisted the help of designer Joe Rawnsley, who visited tribes to learn their customs and color preferences. Like many other mills of the day, Pendleton emulated the multicolor patterns of candy-stripe blankets, like those found on Hudson's Bay point blankets, for their Glacier National Park blanket.

The Pendleton blankets were not only basic wearing apparel, but were standards of trading and ceremonial use. The company began to expand their product line into other woolen textile products and into apparel. In 1912 the company opened a weaving mill in Washougal, Washington for the production of woolen fabrics used in suits and other clothing. One of the original three Bishop sons, Clarence Morton Bishop—usually known as “C. M.”—started a new product line of men's woolen sport shirts in bright colors and patterns. Prior to that time woolen shirts had been considered work shirts and came in dull colors. In 1924 the company began producing men's woolen sport shirts and by 1929 the company was producing a full line of woolen sportswear; the second Bishop son, had left the company in 1918 to form his own company, the Oregon Worsted Company. The third son, died in 1927; this left C. M. with the sole responsibility for management of both woolen mills. During World War II, 1941–45, Pendleton Woolen Mills devoted most of its production to blankets and fabric for uniforms and clothing for the US military services.

In 1949, after postwar market research showed a desire for women's sportswear, the company introduced a line of wool clothing for women and the'49er jacket proved popular. The reversible pleated "Turnabout Skirt" was very popular two-skirts-in-one. In 1960, a little-known singing group known as the Pendletones was formed, taking their name from the classic Pendleton wool plaid shirt; this group changed their name to The Beach Boys and the Pendleton shirt became popular among American youth. In 1972 the company again expanded its product line with the introduction of non-wool garments for men and women. Many customers had a desire for the classic Pendleton style for'year round wear, but wanted lighter clothing for spring and summer wear. Again the new line was a major success. Throughout the company's history its products had been sold in specialty stores and selected department stores—including, of course, C. P. Bishop's original clothing store in Salem. In the 1980s Pendleton entered the retail business with a chain of company-owned and affiliated stores that sold the full line of Pendleton products.

The company began a direct to consumer catalog business and expanded into an ecommerce platform in the 1990s. As of 2019 the company is held and under the management by the 5th generation heirs of Thomas Kay. John Bishop, great-great-grandson of Thomas
