Gang Of Four – I Love A Man In A Uniform (1982)

Gang of Four are an English post-punk group from Leeds. Original personnel were singer Jon King, guitarist Andy Gill, bass guitarist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham. They were fully active from 1977 to 1983, and then re-emerged twice in the 1990s with King and Gill.

They play a stripped-down mix of punk rock, funk music and dub reggae, with an emphasis on the social and political ills of society. Gang of Four are widely considered one of the leading bands of the late 1970s/early 1980s post-punk movement. Their later albums (Songs of the Free and Hard) found them softening some of their more jarring qualities, and drifting towards dance-punk and disco.

The first single from the band’s fourth album “Songs Of The Free” was “I Love A Man In A Uniform” which was released by EMI in the UK and Europe and by Warner Bros in North America.

The US and Canada release of the 12″ single included a remix and dub version by Steve Sinclair as well as a non-LP track.
