About Album


Gang of Four was an English post-punk band, formed in 1976 in Leeds. The original members were singer Jon King, guitarist Andy Gill, bass guitarist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham. There have been many different line-ups including, among other notable musicians, Sara Lee, Mark Heaney and Gail Ann Dorsey. After a brief lull in the 1980s, different constellations of the band recorded two studio albums in the 1990s. Between 2004 and 2006 the original line-up was reunited Gill toured using the name. Entertainment by Gang of Four is a seminal post-punkexperimental album recorded in 1979 that drew inspiration from punk, dub, and Marxist ideology. Some listeners may find themselves engaging in metered body movement i. Others, however, may become plagued by self-loathing due to their lack of political involvement and wasted youth. And a third group of listeners will face facial paralysis as they are unable to decipher whether or not they should be laughing or crying or dancing. From groups whose awareness of genealogy spreads wide enough to openly acknowledge Gang of Four's influence Fugazi, Rage Against the Machine, to those not in touch with their ancestry enough to realize it rap-metal, some indie rock - all have appropriated elements of their forefathers' trailblazing contribution. Its vaguely funky rhythmic twitch, its pungent, pointillistic guitar stoccados, and its spokenshouted vocals have all been picked up by many. Lyrically, the album was apart from many of the day, and it still is. Entertainment is Gang of Four's debut LP, released in 1979. As a so-called post-punk record, it exhibits a tendency in bands from their time to take the then nascent punk rock style and experiment with its manifestations. This is definitely not a typical punk record in the sense of The Ramones' quick pop riffing or The Velvet Underground's too-cool to care attitude Gang of Four's particular twist on the punk sound featured here used generally quick tempos as usual, but a different rhythmic attack with angular, sharp chords that stabbed into the music with staccato accents.

Marketed by Rhino Entertainment, a Warner Music Group Company for US and Canada. More by Gang of Four. Gang of Four were a pop band. Their funk was no less stark or forbidding than, say, the more astringent Timbaland productions. They certainly weren't as twitchy, speedy, or noisy as James Brown at his most energized. They had attitude, energy, the big beat, skilled players funneling their virtuosity into the necessary notes, a handy way with a catch phrase, and sweaty live performances. Sounds like pop to me. They formed in 1977 as part of a scene surrounding Leeds University's fine arts department that also included the Mekons and the Au Pairs. They were art students who named themselves after the Maoists that ran China until the leader's death in 1976. Genre: Post-Punk. Although Gang Of Four managed to make a debut album this damn good, it would be unreasonable to say the least to expect other bands to do it as well. Full Review.

Gang of Four's music fused tough funk rhythms, jagged shards of metallic guitar, and lyrics that filtered Marxist theory through the realities of daily life into a sound that bore little resemblance to any other group when they released their debut album, Entertainment, in 1979. while their third album, 1982's Songs of the Free, gave them a commercial breakthrough in the United States as the single I Love a Man in a Uniform gained airplay on college radio and open-minded R&B stations.

Gang of Four are a British post-punk group from Leeds, England. Original personnel were singer Jon King, guitarist Andy Gill, bass guitarist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham. They were fully active from 1977 to 1984, and then re-emerged twice in the 1990s with King and Gill. In 2005, the original lineup reunited. The group had a single in the British Top 60 with At Home He's A Tourist in 1979, which was blacklisted by Top Of The Pops for its use of the relatively innocuous term rubbers. Gang of Four.

Great sounding 80s US vinyl reissue. Like anthrax—I don’t want to catch it.

Ygglune
Could anyone explain to me why exactly i am not allowed to sell this version on here? I am not really into selling vinyl as you probably know by now.

Budar
Man this is a great pressing and looks incredible vinyl was very well done

Mitynarit
Excellent pressing - the guitars sound really crunchy and the bass is deep with good attack. Cranking up the volume produces no distortion and there are no crackles or pops.One of the most influential and important album ever! Enough said :)

Jum
My version it's exactly the same, but from 2005. Are there 2 separate editions or this release date is wrong?

Conjulhala
My copy sounds lovely.Wonderful album, too. There may be oil.

Pooker
This album is a true classic, and is essential listening. However, this 2005 version/edition from Rhino is re-mastered way too loud and compressed and squashes all the music's dynamics.Try to find the 1995 Infinite Zero version. While you're at it -- get the same label re-release of Solid Gold/Another Day Another Dollar!

Riavay
Do other pressings have "Printed in Canada" on the spine, or do I have a different pressing? Thanks.

SARAND
I think it's the same pressing but they just printed the jacket in Canada. All the other identifiers are the same.

Jark
Got this for my birthday and played it last night and it sounds awesome! Also the record itself is super psychedelic and looks great too!

Shomeshet
My copy of this is fine. No pressing issues. I don't have an original to compare with, but it sounds good to me.

Longitude Temporary
I've gone through 3 copies of this pressing and none have been correct (one sealed but scratched, two pressed off center; the scratched one may have been off center but I didn't play it). I'd say avoid this pressing if possible.

Doulkree
My copy had rough edges on the side of the record, like the excess vinyl hadn't cut off properly when it was pressed. I actually had to sandpaper down the edge in order to make it more smooth. Never had to do that with a record before, and I hope to never do it again. The record plays fine though.

Ylal
Could this be a variant of the 1980 Capitol records Winchester plant pressing for Warner Bros (and not a repress)?

Conjuril
My first Newbury purchase as well, sounds great. My vinyl is about 90% blue, doesn't look as good as the photo...

Xangeo
its an unofficial press from around 2004-2005, a few copies are on red wax, with anumbering with white ink on the back, part of the covers where used with white-labels which got stamps on it. most copies have full coloured labels and are on black wax.

Kefym
This is a very very good album and "right on" in its politics, it was applauded by all the music press in its time. Punishment of Luxury were highly unfashionable at the time but made an infinitely better album in "Laughing Academy". Both bands dealt with politics and psychology delivered through a tight, muscular new wave aesthetic. Gang of Four are the weaker brothers I think but it's still a good album.
