It’s not quite the same thing as being part of a legendary post-punk band 30 years past its prime, but you can help out in the making of Gang of Four’s latest project, Content. By chipping in anywhere from £10 for a CD of the finished product to £950 for the absurd privilege of riding on a helicopter with the band on its way to Glastonbury, you can bankroll the content on Content. So if you’re going to buy the new album when it’s due this summer anyway, you might as well go to Gang of Four’s Pledge Music page and help to make sure it becomes a reality by pitching in. In addition to an explanation of what Gang of Four is up to by legendary guitarist Andy Gill, there’s a snippet of a new track at the site titled “Do as I Do”, which at least sounds like the band is trying to revisit its late 1970s glory days.

Remember Lot's wife. Renounce all sin and vice. Dream of the perfect life. And listen to Gang of Four’s 1979 debut album. It’s the 145th most acclaimed album of all time. This heaven gives me migraine.

Gang of Four's Content is everything you could hope for from a comeback project that taps into nostalgia without simply wallowing in it.
