I was unable to attend the Gang of Four concert in Toronto in the spring, and the band unfortunately hasn't included my city in its fall tour itinerary. However, the group has re-recorded some of its old classics and will release them through V2 Records on an album called Return The Gift on Oct. 11. You can listen to the album at http://www.flashenhanced.com/gangoffour/. I've been listening this afternoon and have been impressed. So if you're an old fan, or want to discover where groups like The Rapture, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Franz Ferdinand and Interpol got a lot of their inspiration and influences from, visit the site and listen for yourself.
Thanks to Gregg Smithe for the tip.
