Gang of Four
Seminal Leeds post-punk outfit Gang of Four have been consistently rattling the cages of convention ever since their formation over 30 years ago. And while the original lineup that was featured in their 2004 reunion has since dissolved, founding members (and primary creative forces) Jon King and Andy Gill still sound indignant and agitated on their just-released seventh studio album, Content. The band's live show should prove to be just as incendiary, as they forever fight to reclaim the laurels heaped upon plenty of pale imitators. Whether it's Gang of Four's evocative social message that moves you or their rambunctious brand of rock 'n' roll, this should be a special performance from a band that clearly knows how to get things done right.
