The Gang of Four are now a a Gang of Two as bassist Dave Allen and drummer Hugo Burnham decide they've had enough of being post-punk heroes. Official statementing has been made:
Burnham writes, “It was a great couple of years of intermittently reminding people old and new, far and wide just how powerful the original four of us were together. Age only increased our power and focus onstage, and it was a rare pleasure to work with the original band once again. Being in a band requires handling the business side of it too, and that became boring and the constant travel became debilitating. I am soon to start my Doctorate, as well as broadening my teaching at more than one college here."
Yes, Burnham has dropped out of a punk band to try his luck with school. Is that the right way round?
