Gang Of Three

Yesterday, I woke up to find out that, as a consequence of an apparently random sequence of events, Andy Gill had died. Andy was the guitarist with the Gang Of Four ... one of the very few truly influential bands spawned by the UK post-punk revelation. Given that their initial heyday was forty years ago there may be some whippersnappers out there who have no idea that they existed. The first album is one of the most urgently important releases to have climbed out of my godforsaken xenophobic set of islands.

This is the Infinite Zero remastered CD edition that was re-released in 1995 and includes the original LP from 1979 and the full self-titled 12" from 1980. It's essential.

Dirt Behind The Daydream

This is the Strange Fruit CD from 1990 that brings together the three Peel Sessions recorded between 1979 and 1981. It's essential.

As essential as it is, and it is, Solid Gold is a miracle. So spare, yet so full. No overdubbed doubled guitars. So minimal. A dub album without all the effects. A masterpiece. I prefer the aggressive singles for "Outside the Trains..." but this album is so...
