GANG OF FOUR – three live sets (1980-1983)

Holy shit, I just found out that the CD edition of “Songs Of The Free” is now out-of-print and massively expensive if you wanna get it at places like or Amazon. Maybe that’ll be forthcoming soon —

Gang Of Four – Anthrax Marxists: Germany, February 1980 (ZIP file)
Gang Of Four – Hurrah’s, NYC, 12.31.80 (ZIP file)
Gang Of Four – “Call Me Up”, Old Grey Whistle Test, 1982 (MP3)
Gang Of Four – “Rockpalast”, Germany, 1983 (ZIP file)

  2. Eric says:

    Before I download all of these, were any of these the concerts that you had posted on post-punk junk?

  3. Bob Hopeless says:

    I have been looking for it on CD for years – never seen it! After Entertainment, my favorite album.

  4. Blame James says:

    I fervently implore you to post SONGS OF THE FREE!!! please, please, please. Great blogs by the way.

    Eric, the Rockpalast and Hurrah’s songs were on PPJ. I don’t know about the OGWT track(s).

    The Anthrax Martxists boot has a few wrong titles. (I found a website that verified this. Song 1, New Entertainment, is just a truncated version of 5-45 (or 5.45; I’ll let you choose the punctuation). Song 9, Part of This is really the otherwise unrecorded Blood Free. Song 7 isn’t Armalite (or Armatrite, as listed) Rifle. It is apparently otherwise unknown. It was suggested that it is an early version of History’s Bunk, but I just don’t hear it.

    And I don’t even like Go4 that much. But, here you go.

    Well, Sharity, had to drop in and thank you for all the great Magazine, Devo and Gang of Four you’ve given us all. As the only way to say thanks properly is to “return the gift”, you’ll find an archive of rare Go4 in the comments I added to this post:

    Eggcity is thanked in comments to a Devo post; another big archive of rare stuff – Television – is here:
