Excerpt from Feb 9th edition of Jumping The Gap Show on 2SER 107.3fm.
Seminal UK post-punkers Gang Of Four finally make it to Sydney on March 1st, so we leapt off the edge today with a preemptive mix up of their tunes, both old & new. Unlike many die-hard Gang fans, we've always loved their somewhat derided 1983 LP 'HARD' where they took more of a left turn towards mutant disco with bassist Sarah Lee. Who can resist a female bassist, especially one who shares her name with a cheesecake! In truth, Gang Of Four's Andy Gill & Jon King always had a good grip on funky grooves, even if it was Gill's amazing guitar sounds and Kings's biting, often darkly amusing socio-political lyrics that cemented their place in history. Afterall, funky-arsed Shriekback bassist Dave Allen was in the original Gang. So here's an excerpt from the show with classcic tunes like "I Love A Man In Uniform" up against remixes, edits and something from their brand new blood-letting LP "Content". Long live GO4
