She's Dressed For The H-Bomb

Oh so influential and name-dropped left, right and centre a few years ago Leeds agit-post-punkers Gang of Four were dour but funky. This is one of their best songs- I Found That Essence Rare- with it's wire-scaping-against-wire guitars, propulsive rhythm and lyrics taking in the H Bomb, Bikini (Atoll) and bikini's, tabloid newspapers, politics, class war and other very 80s concerns. Gang Of Four also sang 'To hell with poverty, we'll get drunk on cheap wine'-definitely been there.
