Gang of people who sound an awful lot like you

For those of you who missed out on getting tickets to Queens of the Stone Age, it looks like there are still tickets available for Gang of Four tomorrow night, also at Emo’s.

Who’s Gang of Four, you ask? What a sweet kid. There are plenty of places out there on the Internets that can give you more in-depth info than I can. Suffice it to say that certain bands on today’s music scene (*cough* Franz Ferdinand *cough* Bloc Party *cough* Bravery) owe an awful lot to this bunch of brits who broke out in the late 70’s. Their ground-breaking album, Entertainment!, was recently re-released (not the first time. It was re-released roughly 10 years ago on the Rollins/Rubin label Infinite Zero) and a new album, Return the Gift, hit stores today. Check it out, chickadees.

Update: I should add that Return the Gift is newly recorded versions of old songs and remixes of old songs, not new material. I shouldn’t pass judgement without hearing it first, but it’s hard not to view this as an attempt to cash in. I suppose I can’t fault them. I’d just buy the Entertainment! re-issue if I were you.

    “it’s hard not to view this as an attempt to cash in.”

    Hence, the dollar that they’re enclosing in 20,000 copies.
