Product Description

Gang Of Four – A Brief History Of The Twentieth Century – Cassette

Warner Brothers Records

Released in 1990 to help promote a reformed Gang of Four, A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE 20th CENTURY is a powerful overview of one of the best political rock groups. It is also a great introduction to the band’s world-view. In this view, everything has a political context–love (“Anthrax”), the military (“I Love an Man in Uniform”), loneliness (“Call Me Up”), and, of course, history (“The History of the World”)–and no one is innocent. Many of the band’s high points appear: “At Home, He’s a Tourist,” “Damaged Goods,” “To Hell With Poverty,” and “We Live as We Dream, Alone.” Frequently employing a martial beat and elastic, funk-inspired bass-guitar lines overlaid with left-field squalls of noise, the Gang of Four’s songs set out to convince you of things–and don’t give up until you agree. For the believers and the scholars, A BRIEF HISTORY also includes an essay penned by culture/music critic Greil Marcus about experiencing the band’s rise to fame first-hand.
