The kid smiles, he thinks Mr. Miyagi is his friend. Mr. Miyagi smiles, he is glad the kid is fooled.

Now he can exploit him.

I don't see the point of Gill continuing as "Gang of Four" without King.

Also, I like Return The Gift.

I agree. Great, great band in their day but the current band is so removed from what they were/made them great that it would make more sense to me for Gill to carry on as it being a new, differently named band. Gill is still a great guitar player regardless.

Sounds like a Siouxsie & The Banshees outtake.

Gill should just call this a new band and retire GoF.

Oh, and Content was an OK album.

At this point, Andy Gill is essentially playing the role of the businessman on the cover of Entertainment.

When is saw them in 2005 (or whenever) Andy Gill was by far the weakest link, I suspect drunk, and not playing with the band at all. Though he did manage to coax out some cool noise in spots King-Burnham-Allen did all the heavy lifting.

I hate to say it colored my enjoyment of the band but man it really did.

I have about as much interest in a new Gill-only line-up as I do in the Peter Hook Joy Division shit-show, by which I mean none.

That's too bad. I saw them on that tour and I thought they were great. Maybe Gill was having an off night when you saw them?

Regardless, I wouldn't go see Gill and Four if it were free.

I had never listened beyond Solid Gold so I found a nm-/nm- copy of Songs of the Free for $6 and wondered why it was so cheap. Listening to it now, I understand. It's not totally horrible. You guys say that Hard is much worse? I won't even bother.

I much prefer the version of 'Love Like Anthrax' on the Damaged Goods EP to the version on Entertainment! I read somewhere the speaking vocals in the background are an explanation of why Gang of Four doesn't do love songs...?

Why doesn't Spotify have this version?

Not crap.

They’re touring “Entertainment!” In Australia next year. Will probably go see them.
