Biografia

Gang of Four are an English post-punk group from Leeds. Original personnel were singer Jon King, guitarist Andy Gill, bass guitarist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham. They were fully active from 1977 to 1983, and then re-emerged twice in the 1990s with King and Gill. In 2004, the original line-up reunited but in November 2006 Allen was replaced on bass by Thomas McNeice and Burnham on drums by Mark Heaney. Singer Jon King departed some time during 2012.

They play a stripped-down mix of punk rock, funk music and dub reggae, with an emphasis on the social and political ills of society. Gang of Four are widely considered one of the leading bands of the late 1970s/early 1980s post-punk movement. Their later albums (Songs of the Free and Hard) found them softening some of their more jarring qualities, and drifting towards dance-punk and disco. Their debut album, Entertainment!, ranked at Number 490 in Rolling Stone’s The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, and is listed by Pitchfork Media as the 8th best album of the 1970s.[2] David Fricke of Rolling Stone described Gang of Four as “probably the best politically motivated band in rock & roll.”

History

Gill and King, the primary creative forces in the band, brought together an eclectic array of influences, ranging from the neo-Marxist Frankfurt School of social criticism to the increasingly clear trans-Atlantic punk consensus. Gang of Four was named by a member of the Mekons when while driving around with Gill and King he came upon a newspaper article on the intra-Party coup against China’s “Gang of Four”.

    it's funny how this succeeds making post punk look bad while post punk is already a wreckage

    Entertainment! is one of those albums where, while it's on, you wonder whether any other music ever needed to exist.

    One of those bands that had an absolutely absurd drop in quality past the first album. Entertainment! was phenomenal, Solid Gold was alright and then everything after is fucking garbage. Crazy.

    "IanCurtis13: Just to warn people in advance, Andy Gill has reformed the band with just him as the only original member.... fucking disgraceful" <--- Ugh, thanks for the warning. I caught them at ATP in 2006 (original lineup) sort of by accident and was really surprised about how good they were, completely unexpected. I was just thinking that it would be cool to see them again sometime, but I definitely won't bother now should the occasion arise.

    I only have their first two albums, Entertainment! is very good but I think I like Solid Gold even more. And it's nice to hear a melodica in some songs. Reminds me of Augustus Pablo
