Somewhat unexpected news from the Gang of Four, they are touring the US next March with original members Jon King and Hugo Burnham, their 80s bassist Sara Lee, and Dave Pajo stepping into the shoes of Andy Gill.

Bit strange… pity they couldn’t reunite while Andy was still with us 🙁

Shame this one is no longer available.

I've still got my copy!

 

And I've still got my copy of the Bunnymen's 1st single, from when they had a drum machine. I remember seeing them at Chester Arts Centre, with Teardrop Explodes - £1 to get in iirc, and there was a huge punch up afterwards for some reason, but we managed to escape with inflicting or being inflicted!

I have that copy too in the attic.  Reminds me of the days of trawling through the bootleg tapes at record fairs as I had a lot of Bunnymen tapes - also in the attic but I doubt they will work now.

Reminded of this more recent group as they were chosen by Idles (normally it's a listener who choses) for the "Trunk of Punk" feature on 6 music yesterday.  I think they are supporting Idles on the tour too. Sounded a bit post punk to me.

The other two they chose were Discharge and Crass.

I was going through a pretty dark patch in my early twenties. Both my parents passed away through illness. I'd bought a lot of records when I started working, catching up somewhat on what I couldn't afford in my teens.

 

But the current music was rather uninspiring on the whole. I liked The Cult and Guns & Roses and could have gone metal until I heard Gigantic EP by The Pixies on the radio.

 

Got me elements of proto-grunge and alternative rock. Kim Deal's playing got me good.
