9/18: Entertainment // Gang of Four // 1979 // Rock

Favorite Song: Damaged Goods

Rating: 7/10

Coming off of post punk rage, Gang of Four’s Entertainment! creates a blissful yet energetic alternative for fans of Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, and the like. They tackle everything from sex in “Damaged Goods” to war in “Guns Before Butter” and capitalism in nearly every single track. #2018Albums #Entertainment #GangOfFour #70s #Alternative #Rock #Music

RECALLING THE DAY - September 18, 1982:
WHO: Gang of Four @gangoffourofficial
WHERE: Tower Theater ( now El Rey Tex-Mex Cafe)
WHY: "Songs of the Free 1982 US Tour"
.
The Gang of Four - one of the most underrated punk/nuwave bands of the late-70s and early-80s. The music of this band - vocalist Jon King, guitarist Andy Gill, bassist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham - from Leeds, England brought together an eclectic array of influences, ranging from the neo-Marxist Frankfurt School of social criticism to the increasingly clear trans-Atlantic consensus.
.
I had seen the GOF earlier in '82 at the Peppermint Lounge in NYC. By the time they played the art-deco Tower Theatre, a former Houston movie palace, Allen had been replaced by Sara Lee, who was Robert Fripp's bassist in the League of Gentlemen. Lee helped give the band's third studio album, "Songs of the Free," a more commercially accessible element.
.
Although the first single from the album, "I Love a Man in a Uniform," was a dance club hit and the band's most radio-friendly song, it was banned in the UK shortly after its release because Britain went to war in the Falkland Islands. Gill and King continued, off and on, as Gang of Four until 2011. Gill is the only original member in the reconstituted GOF.
.
Gang of Four went on to influence a number of successful alternative rock acts throughout the '80s and '90s, although few of their followers were as arty or political. R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe cites Gang of Four as one of his band's chief influences. Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers would declare that Gang of Four were the single most important influence on his band's early music. Kurt Cobain stated that Nirvana started as "a Gang of Four and Scratch Acidripoff." Gang of Four's debut album "Entertainment!" was ranked 13th in Kurt Cobain's list of his 50 favourite albums in his journal.
.
Gang of Four would return to Houston in November 1983, this time playing to a packed house at Numbers #2 @numbersnightclub

Entertainment! (1979) disco clave de Gang of Four y del postpunk. El nombre del grupo hace referencia a los cuatro líderes de la revolución cultural China. Hace poco vino a Argentina uno solo de ellos en nombre de la banda, en fin...el disco es genial, y muchas bandas actuales les deben a estos 4
