Gang of Four has released a special live CD of their performance at the Barbican, London on September 24th, 2005. The CD was originally recorded, mixed and distributed exclusively to concert attendees, but the producers have made copies available online. The band is currently on tour in support of their compilation of re-recorded tracks. The band also recently reissued their 1979 debut, Entertainment! which also included the Yellow EP and four previously unreleased recordings.
The reunited post-punk quartet signed to V2 back in April and the label issued Whitey's Gift on September 20th. The record is entirely composed of re-recordings of their songs, and a special UK edition included a bonus disc with remixes and covers performed by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ladytron, Hot Hot Heat, the Dandy Warhols, the Others, Amusement Parks on Fire, Faultline, the Rakes, Phones, Go Home Productions, and Tony Kanal of No Doubt. The bonus disc will be released seperately in the US this month.
