Great Men

Gang of Four return, and all pretenders should watch their arses

"We're not a political band," Allen says, "but having said that, we clearly had a fucking awful lot to say about the state of what we felt was some state of emergency, where it was like, 'People, listen up! Things are not good!' We weren't advocating some kind of anarchistic revolution. We're just saying you have a choice. And when you realize you have a choice, it often makes it easy to be the guy or the woman who just wants to go and work at the bank, who says, 'I choose to do this.' Do you want to improve your lot, or do you want to merely stop complaining about it? And it's a tough choice to make. It was then, and it is now. It really is."

Disappointed that Gang of Four's new album is full of rerecorded hits? You shouldn't be. "We know what we're good at, and we're not going to deliver you crap," bassist Dave Allen (far right) says.
