Gang of Four
Claim to fame: Gang of Four was a postpunk band that wedded Marxist theory in their lyrics to James Brown-inspired funk mixed with punk attitude.
Their debut album Entertainment! consistently ranks among the top five punk albums of all time and the top one-hundred rock albums of all time.

After two original members left and various other personnel changes, Gang of Four broke up after their fourth album Hard.

Where are they now? The band regrouped in various forms, but always with original guitarist Andy Gill and original vocalist Jon King to put out two albums in the late 80s/early 90, Mall and Shrinkwrapped.
Still politically vehement in their lyrical contents, the new sound was rougher and more guitar-dominated than their original stuff.

In 2005 all four original members reunited for a concert tour and plan to record a new album.
