    Sometimes I think money is my only goal
    It makes me sad
    Work on up another 4 miles
    Coffee, fries and a cheeseburger

    Did I mention I love Go4 yet? Even the later, dumber stuff like Mall, just saying, Satellite is brilliant in a way.

    But Solid Gold and Entertainment were amazing albums.

    Lest ye accuse me of being a rando googler...
    Vinyl, I must have been in 9th or 10th grade.
    Can you believe it was on sale? $6.98 suggested price, only $5.98 at Turtle's! That's irony, or is it?

    Big Dave Allen and Andy Gill fan.

    I don't think enough of these indie hipster kids realize how much they owe this band...

    I know The Rakes realized it. Listen to this guitar.

    Oh yes. And the 'At The Palace' live album still sounds great too. So glad I got to see them again (well, Andy and 3 other guys) a couple of months before he passed.

    Easily my favorite Go4 song. I saw them in '81, and waited the whole show to hear it. The drums are hypnotic.

    Some re-recordings are lame, but I really like the version on Return the Gift

    ... which is great in general IMHO
