A classic.
Propelled by a political mission and some wicked bass playing, the gang of four released ‘Entertainment’ in 1979.
Though King sings, “two steps forward, six steps back” (in At Home He’s a Tourist), the only reason Gang of Four could have for stepping back is that they are so far ahead of the curve. This record is – without question – one of the most important records from the post punk era. and, while the album’s title was almost certainly intended as sarcasm, this is also a really good listen.
