Public Enemy is Number 1!

The latest Public Enemy album is on the Internet in MP3 format -- a little late, granted, but better late than never.

'There's a Poison Goin' On' was intended for release on May 19 but fans logging on to and the group's own web site were disappointed to find it not there. The album is now available on both sites.

Public Enemy is the first band to release a whole album over the Internet, following more tentative attempts by the likes of Tom Petty and David Bowie . The album has been released over RealNetworks' new Jukebox, a digital storage system which employs Real Audio and MP3.

Once a user requests the album, they have to cough up $10 (£7ish) before it is released.
