334. Gang of Four – Entertainment (1979)
This was gonna come out tomorrow but since guitarist/creative force Andy Gill died today I’ll bump it up. This is one of the first & finest post-punk albums of all time. Jagged guitars, left wing politics & danceable rhythms all around. pic.twitter.com/T03kOft2Ep

Ah no, Andy Gill of Gang of Four shouldn’t leave us. Marvellous band, and full-time Rock Against Racism stalwarts in Leeds in 1980s, countering proper bad Nazis, not the cuddly type. No one sane would choose to be on the wrong end of that magnificent noise https://t.co/paRoOoHcMm
