"It really is a different band now."

More Gang Of Four More Gang Of Four

Longtime enthusiasts will know it’s now really a Gang Of One, with the serrated guitar of Andy Gill the only original element left.

The loss of Jon King’s declamatory vocals can’t be ignored. Replacement yeller Gaoler Sterry delivers the slogans of personal and societal politics energetically, but it really is a different band now. Some guest lead vocals from The Kills/The Dead Weather’s Alison Mosshart will encourage some curiosity, while middle-aged rebel yells like First World Citizen show the ideology is intact, even if the band isn’t.
