Gang Of Four

The classic post-punk group Gang Of Four will be releasing Return the Gift, which are re-recordings of material from their first three albums. You can get a stream of the entire album here. While this album is techincally fine, the new recordings really don't add anything new to the material. There doesn't seem to be any point to this other than the band doesn't own the masters to the original albums. It'd probably be better for you to head towards the reissue of their debut album Entertainment instead. Anyhow Return the Gift will be released October 11. (Thanks to Japanese God Jesus Robot for this.)

BTW Gang Of Four will be playing at the TLA in Philly on October 3. I wish I could be there but I've made other commitments. I've heard lots of positive things on their recent batch of live dates.
