Gang Of Four - Solid Gold


On this date in 1981, Gang Of Four released their second album, Solid Gold. It contained the singles, "What We All Want" and "Outside The Trains Don't Run On Time". The album reached the #52 spot on the U.K. albums chart. The Leeds, England post punk band slowed down considerably after 1983 but has performed sporadically since then. Original members Dave Allen and Hugo Burnham had rejoined the band a few years ago but left again last year leaving Jon King and Andy Gill to replace them...again.
