Radio 4 – Gotham!

For those who didn’t catch Radio 4 first time around, either out of confusion at the moniker or scepticism at the sudden chic embrace of any NY dudes with guitars slung around their necks, here’s a second chance. Like The Rapture, Radio 4 are essentially retro, revisiting the choppy, politically agitated aggression of Gang Of Four, particularly on “Start A Fire”, a passionate pricking of Aids consciousness. Also included here are two new tracks, “Caroline” and live fave “Sink So Low”, as well as several remixes, the best being Mark Stewart and Adrian Sherwood’s high radiation-level treatment of “Struggle”.
