Record Listening: Gang of Four

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Listen to "Entertainment" at a gathering hosted by former Gang of Four bassist Dave Allen.

Join the vinyl revival! Enjoy loud music and lively conversation with Gang of Four’s original bassist, Dave Allen at a record listening party celebrating the 40th anniversary of the revolutionary post-punk album “Entertainment!”

Gang of Four incorporated elements of funk, dub reggae, and dance music, creating “a unique style that both shreds and grooves.” The band’s neo-Marxist social critique comes through sharply in the lyrics with a message as relevant today as it was in 1979.
