It's Not For Great Men

GoF's first album came out in '78. After all sorts of break-ups, they've been essentially defunct for a dozen years. But they sound as tight and energized as any current band.

Frontman Jon King (not the CNN guy) is a natural.

Hmm...given the Marxist dialectic that infuses their music, one must ask if it is better for art to be inspired by a false God such as Marxism rather than Mammon or Nihilism that seems to drive contemporary rappers and rap-rockers.

Ah! "Anthrax"! ("Love will get you like a case of anthrax/And that's something I don't want to catch!") A much scarier song today -- with multiple meanings -- than 25 years ago.
