History's Bunk!

For most of this week I've listened to virtually nothing but classic Gang of Four. I thought of looking for a web site devoted to them, but didn't bother for some reason. And then yesterday out of the blue I found out about Not Great Men, what looks to be a very interesting fan site. And I found out about the official page of former Gang of Four guitarist Andy Gill. Gill is a genius of dissonance. Often the only thing he'd play would be intricately sculpted noise, but it was never just choatic screeching and clanging. He both understood and had control over what he was doing.[Links via The Cartoonist.]
