Gang of Four

Gang of Four produced some of the most startling and potent post-punk of the early 1980s and later became a big influence on the likes of Nirvana, Fugazi and Franz Ferdinand. Formed by Leeds University students Jon King and Andy Gill in 1976, the band were championed by Radio 1 DJ John Peel and early singles 'Damaged Goods' and 'At Home He's a Tourist' led to debut album 'Entertainment!' (1979) becoming a cult classic. Their single 'I Love a Man in Uniform' was banned by the BBC because it was deemed inappropriate as war broke out in the Falklands. They split in 1983 but reformed for the more synth driven 'Mall' (1991) and 'Shrinkwrapped' (1995) and released their seventh studio album, 'Content', in 2011. Founding member Gill died on 1st February 2020, aged 64.
