Gang Of Four @ The Hi-Fi, 25.02.2011

Incredible, just incredible.  I didn’t know what to expect from tonight but even more than two weeks after the show I’m still completely blown away by just how good it was.  Having spent a couple of days before the gig re-familiarising myself with Entertainment! and Solid Gold I’ve hardly listened to anything else since.

But I ended up turning it down when they sent me the contract to sign. The contract said that the photos could […]
