Gang Of Four is one of the most radical, and radically important, rock groups of the last 30 years. With Andy Gill slashing away on guitar while Jon King declaimed over the top about love as disease or the torture of prisoners in Northern Ireland like a deranged demagogue.
More than anything, Gang Of Four are about visceral, high energy, maximum impact rock ‘n’ roll. They make you dance and they make you sweat just as they make you think. That exclamation mark at the end of the title of their 1979 debut album entertainment! Was no accident or sleight of design (art worked by Jon and Andy)
These live dates will include all of the songs from the album which was born out of very specific circumstances and conditions social, economic, emotional; political which strangely seems as resonant, as true and as relevant today as it did on the day it was released.
Over the last two years, Gang Of Four has played some exhilarating live shows around the world that have been as visionary, relevant and exciting as ever. These shows will prove that the classic songs have connected with a new generation of fans, many of whom have discovered the band through finding the source that has inspired many of the best current bands.
The performance will include all of entertainment! Plus songs spanning this bands remarkable career with a promise of new material.
Jon and Andy will be joined by Mark Heaney on drums and Thomas McNiece on bass.
“Capital, it fails us now!”
