MP3: Gang Of Four – Free EP

Gang Of Four

Fans of classic U.K post-punk are sure to lose control this summer. This morning, we droppedĀ  a brand new mp3 and some January Australian tour dates from pioneering London band, Wire. Now we’ve got a free digital EP from Leeds’ equally-groundbreaking, Gang Of Fourwho’ll release their first album in 16 years on 18th February and tour Australia shortly after (dates below).

The EP features a reworked version of their 1979 classic “Glass”, a brand new track “Sleeper” and a remix of “I Party All the Time” (the original version will appear on forthcoming album). You can read a full explanation of how the recordings came about over at The Guardian.

In brief, however, the three tracks stand as irrefutable proof that the group remain just as radical and unhinged as they were 32 years ago. It’s been a long 16 years waiting for some new recordings. But, with our appetites for anarchy now well-and-truly whetted, the remaining two-month countdown to the album and tour is gonna be real torture.
