Gang of Four

“The Dying Rays” ft. Herbert Gronemeyer

What Happens Next

 Some bands just never become irrelevant.  Gang of Four have always been a radical band, never afraid to come up against topics most bands never handle.  Remember, they took their name from the group of Maoists who took control of the Chinese government after the death of Mao.  Gang of Four have always worn their political radicalism; but, unlike similar bands, Gang of Four always made great music.  They might be older, but that is certainly something that has not changed at all.  The new CD might ‘seem’ mellow, but it stills packs that punch.  They are also on tour this summer and fall.  Definitely go see them; they are one of the greatest live bands ever.
