Gang Of Four, one of the most radical and radically important groups of the last thirty years, are set
to release their first album of new songs for sixteen years on January 31th 2011.Entitled CONTENT,
the record sees founding members Jon King and Andy Gill continue to deliver intelligent and liberating
music that is both provocative and thrilling. New tracks include Who Am I? You Dont Have To
Be Mad, I Cant Forget Your Lonely Face and I Party All The Time, and they reveal Gang Of Four
to be just as challenging and unconventional now as they were in 1978.
The album will be available in a standard CD release and on vinyl. It will also be available in a limited
edition Ultimate Content Can which contains six booklets, the first containing the new album on CD,
the second featuring an art piece Jon and Andy have created to depict the last 40 years of world
history (composed of a series of twenty drawings and montages), and subsequently a book of lyrics,
a book of Rotoscoped photographs of the band's emotions, a book containing sachets of Jon and
Andys' blood and a scratch and sniff booklet which reflects the key areas of human activity.
Gang Of Four are Jon King (vocals & melodica), Andy Gill (guitar & vocals), Thomas McNeice (bass)
and Mark Heaney (drums). Since their inception in 1978 with the legendary Damaged Goods EP and
continuing through albums like Entertainment! (released in 1979 and one of the greatest debut albums
of all time) and groundbreaking albums Solid Gold (1981) and Songs Of The Free (1983),
Gang Of Four have triumphantly defined their place on the musical landscape and been a major influence
on a wide range of bands including R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sonic Youth, Bloc Party,
The Rapture and Franz Ferdinand.
