Gang of Four
Gang of Four is one of the most radical, and radically important, rock groups of the last 30 years.
“More than anything, Gang of Four were about visceral, high energy, maximum impact rock’n’roll. They made you dance and they made you sweat just as they made you think. That exclamation mark at the end of the title of their 1979 debut album Entertainment! – incidentally, one of the greatest debut albums ever made; in fact, one of the greatest long-playing records, period – was no accident or sleight of design. Economic, emotional, political, musical – and yet it remains as true, as resonant, as relevant, as universally applicable three decades on as it was the day it was released.” - Q Magazine
Andy Gill (guitar and vocals) continues to provide the anguished riffs and driving chords that send extraordinary singer and lyricist Gaoler diving and contorting across the stage. They are joined in the studio and on stage by bass player Thomas Mcneice and drummer Tobias Humble.
The band always sounded years ahead of their time and now this is their moment, with a host of new imitators and emulators, and a fanbase swelled by new adherents.
