Second Album By Legends GANG OF FOUR – Here’s ‘SOLID GOLD’ (1981)

Old and new albums to make your day…

‘SOLID GOLD’ by GANG OF FOUR
Released: March 1981 / Second longplayer

ALL MUSIC review: “Gang of Four’s existence had as much to do with Slave and Chic as
it did the Sex Pistols and the Stooges, which is something Solid Gold demonstrates more
than ‘Entertainment!’ Any smartypants can point out the irony of a band on Warner Bros.
railing against systematic tools of control disguised as entertainment media, but ‘Gang of
Four’ were more observational than condescending… This is a nickel less spectacular than
the debut, but owning one and not the other would be criminal.”

Score: 4,5/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: The post-punk champs of crackling guitar riffs,
manic rhythms and freakish funk punk. The most influential – worldwide – of a
rad DIY generation with Wire, The Mekons, The Pop Group and The Slits. And still
heavily influential today. Bands such as Parquet Courts, LCD Soundsystem, Bodega,
early Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party and many more know all GO4 records by hard.

Three highlights: What We All Want / Outside The Trains Don’t Run On Time /
He’d Send In The Army
