Gang of Four

Saturday, October 24 | Paper Tiger

Formed in '77, Gang of Four accomplished the unenviable task of merging the sexual, perpetual slink and grind of disco with the crude, radical and unkempt treble assault of punk rock. It was something many bands at the time attempted but so few demonstratively accomplished. They were Marxist music for the roller rink. With tunes like "(Love Like) Anthrax," the B-side to one of the best debut singles — "Damaged Goods" — of any UK band post-Invasion, the Gang achieved one of the last admirable feats of 20th century writers and rockers alike: being banned by their government. Although guitarist/vocalist Andy Gill is the one remaining original member, this is a bucket list show. — D.T. Buffkin
