I didn’t even know they’d ‘renuinted’, but here’s a Village Voice review of a recent Gang of Four show, with the original line up – proof positive of the postpunk revival. Will they come to NZ like Wire? Sounds pretty cool:
Gang of Four pioneered a critique of pop capitalism that reverberated in the mainstream like Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing.” Mark Knopfler sang about installing microwave ovens; Jon King sings about riots and looting while demolishing a miked microwave oven with a baseball bat, crashing metallically on the beat.
Also – thanks to everyone for coming to may party on Saturday – it was way cool.
