Gang of Four by Paul Lester
Book DescriptionThis is the story of Leed's radical post punk renegades, who, between 1977 and 1984, pioneed the idea of the indie guitar band who could make you simultaneously dance and think. Published to co-incide with the 30th anniversary of the release of their debut single "Damaged Goods" when the band will release their first new studio album featuring the original line up. It demonstrates how the influence of this intelligent rock-fun collective had a huge impact on some of the world's biggest bands including Red Hot Chili Peppers and Franz Ferdinand. It follows their beginnings when they emerged at the height of punk and how in 2007 their 1979 debut album "Entertainment" was nominated by NME as one of the most important and influential rock albums of all time.
