Gang Of Four
a phenomenal lineup of bands that have been influenced by Gang of Four
Love You Down III with Warpaint is happening twice this week
The choppy dance music ushered my teen aged punk angst. But with Andy Gill as the only ‘original’ member was I seeing Gang of Four or was it just a cover band now? If you lose the vocalist, can they be the same band?
Love Like Anthrax – Gang Of Four – After ratting out world politics for 35 minutes, the band ended their only great album by comparing love the revenge of the vegan, it distorts its way through noise guitar. Helen is seeing Go4 tonight, and for their sakes I hope they play it – B+
The nice people at Burgerama gave me a photo pass so I had access to the photo pit, which is certainly a delight but also a terrible temptation to take as many pictures as possible… This is just what I did, and I ended up with hundreds of photos to sort out today! The pictures reflect the best moments of these two days
I thought for a minute I knew all the songs of Weezer, but I realized it was because the band may have played all its greatest hits… From ‘My Name is Jonas’ to ‘Hash Pipe’, ‘El Scorcho’, ‘Go Away’, ‘Island in the Sun’, ‘Beverly Hills’, ‘Say it Ain’t so’, ‘Pork and Beans’, ‘Undone’, ‘Buddy Holly’, yes it was a real crowd pleaser
A very busy week, and the ones I am most excited about I have already heard (and they’re both good), The Pop Group and Screaming Females, but if not them then there is still quite a few goodies: Gang Of Four, Big Sean, Emile Haynie, who had a really good single with Lana Del Rey earlier this year,… Dan Deacon? Decisions, decisions… Gang Of Four!
