Gang Of Four The Moment Limited Black/White Vinyl 2LP Set

Gang of Four have always been exciting to watch live: edgy, unpredictable, appearing to threaten to dissolve into chaos and yet never losing the tightness, funkiness and angularity that is the hallmark of their sound. During a year spent touring the world, Gang Of Four recorded two of the greatest of their shows. The band filmed their sold-out show at New York's Irving Plaza which will be available as a DVD. They also recorded their penultimate show of 2015, at London's Islington Assembly Hall. This will be available as an audio CD and b&w splattered double coloured vinyl album. The DVD will be packaged with the CD. The set list of each show brings together a catalogue spanning more than 35 years, from Entertainment!'s 'Damaged Goods' to 'Where The Nightingale Sings' from their current studio album, 'What Happens Next'. The only live Gang of Four record since 1984's 'At the Palace', 'Live...In The Moment' captures the taught, punchy energy of Gang of Four live and at their very best. BIO Sandwiched between Joy Division's landmark album 'Unknown Pleasures' and Led Zepellin's iconic IV, Gang of Four's debut 'Entertainment!' sits at #8 on Pitchfork's Top 100 of the 1970s. It is, says Pitchfork, "caustic and bursting with disgust for unethical capitalism, opportunist politicians and consumer society, among other things, but it's also crafted with amazing pop sensibility -- and is, of course, remarkably danceable." Mojo simply named it a "record that changed the world" That same album was found on Kurt Cobain's handwritten list of favourite albums. Echoing the singular importance of the band's impact on music, Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello told Rolling Stone in July 2014 that "there's no one more influential on my guitar playing than Andy Gill." Having been acknowledged as a massive influence by hundreds of artists including Bloc Party, R.E.M., The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Massive Attack, Nine Inch Nails, The Rapture, St. Vincent, Franz Ferdinand and LCD Soundsystem, Gang of Four's legacy is assured but isn't yet fixed. The band continues to develop and push boundaries, not frozen in a moment in time, but constantly evolving while remaining true to the original spirit.
