Gang Of Four ‎– I Love A Man In A Uniform (US 12″)

Keeping it alternative.

A classic from 1982 and another classic from Leeds Post-punkers, Gang Of Four. An anti-war song, at the time the Falklands was happening.

The remix (by Hugo Burnham and Steve Sinclair) isn’t too drastically different As usual there is a dub mix, must have been a requirement of all 12 inches back then.

B-side “Producer” is as you’d expect from Dave Allen, bass driven, the track is almost punk and was a bit of a live favourite.

Apparently they influenced Red Hot Chili Peppers and Rage Against the Machine.
