Gang of Four are an English post-punk group, formed in 1976 in Leeds. The original members were singer Jon King, guitarist Andy Gill, bass guitarist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham. There have been many different line-ups including, among other notable musicians, Sara Lee, Mark Heaney and Gail Ann Dorsey. After a brief lull in the 1980s, different constellations of the band recorded two studio albums in the 1990s

Produced by Rob Warr, Jon King & Andy Gill. Album Entertainment! Anthrax Lyrics. Woke up this morning desperation . (Love crops up quite a lot as something to sing about, cos most groups) What I've been saying won't say them again (Make most of their songs about falling in love, or how happy they are) My head's not empty, it's full with my brain (To be in love. You occasionally wonder why these groups) The thoughts I'm thinking, like piss down a drain (Do sing about it all the time, piss down a drain).

Given Gang of Four’s relentless dissection of such trends, it’s easy to see 2005's Return the Gift as a sorry-not-sorry subversion of pop culture. As Simon Reynolds says in Retromania: Return the Gift seemed to be saying: ‘You want a Gang of Four resurrection? Here you are, then, exactly what you secretly crave: the old songs, again. The band aren't oblivious to this. This will be their ninth album in three and a half decades, and while only the band, their parents and Simon Reynolds have listened to all of them, interest has never quite sagged to wait they’re still going? levels, à la Maximo Park or the BNP. With a conveyor belt of guest singers (notably Allison Mosshart and Herbert Grönemeyer), the prickly record dissects identity in the age of celebrity, social media and UKIP nationalism.

When Gang of Four guitarist Andy Gill’s wife, Time magazine’s London Bureau Chief Catherine Mayer, arrives home from work, she gets out a camera to take a picture of myself and her husband together. I’m fed up having to deny I’m married to you, she explains. I can sympathise, but if she’s fed up with the confusion, imagine how Andy and I feel, having now spent three decades denying we’re each other. It’s not hard to see why the confusion arose in the first place. Around the time Gang of Four first attracted attention for the rigorously critical view it applied to music and popular culture, I started writing about music for the NME. It makes a bit of sense, he concedes, because some of what you write gels with what I might think on a similar subject. Jun 09 2 notes Reblog.

Gang of Four lost its initial momentum with a career that straggled into the 1990s as the band tried slicker, more electronic pop and dance music. A 2004 reunion of the original 1970s lineup led to touring but no new finished songs. Now Gang of Four’s songwriters - Mr. King, on lead vocals, and the guitarist Andy Gill - have a new rhythm section. And they have reclaimed, with a vengeance, their old attack. Once again, Gang of Four delivers a raw, syncopated wallop.
