Gang of Four

The Gang of Four -- no, not these guys, but the rock band -- is back together and the Times has a nice article about them. They gave a show in San Francisco in 1979 (?) that was so powerful that Greil Marcus didn't even bother to stick around for the headliners the Buzzcocks, no slouches themselves. I count myself fortunate to have seen them in '80 or '81 at California Hall in SF. I still consider their first album Entertainment! to be the greatest rock'n'roll album of all time. I look forward to getting their U.S. tour info.
