Gang of Four emerged from the wreckage of punk rock in the early '80s with a sound all their own. Characterized by blatantly political lyrics that were chanted, sung, and yelled over spare, funky drumbeats and Andy Gill's scratch-and-kill guitar, the Gang's particular brand of angular dance punk was as refreshing as ice water in the face, and as this collection shows, still holds up well almost 20 years later. Back when the members of Rage Against the Machine were still in grade school, Gang of Four's explicit politics were something of a curiosity; the desultory feminism of "It's Her Factory" and the pessimistic Marxist economic forecasting of "Capital (It Fails Us Now)" were not exactly common lyrical conceits in the immediate post-disco era. Those who know their Chinese history will recognize the band's name, though whether it was meant ironically or as a genuine tribute to the counterrevolutionist faction led by Lady Mao is unclear. This generous best-of recaps some of the Gang's finest moments, and will serve as a perfectly sufficient precis for all but completist fans. Half of the Gang's first full-length album (cheerfully titled Entertainment! as in "guerrilla war struggle is the new entertainment") is here, and so are some of the better tracks from their EPs. It also brings together some of the brighter moments from the band's protracted decline into synthesized dribble, such as the immortal "I Love a Man in a Uniform." There are occasional disappointments (the studio version of "To Hell With Poverty" was much better than the so-so live version included here), but overall this is an excellent collection.

Metallica und der Weg in Richtung Mainstream

Mit 125 Millionen verkauften Alben weltweit, darunter ca. 30 Millionen Exemplare des "Black Album", ist Metallica eines der überraschendsten Phänomene der Popmusik in den letzten 50 Jahren. Wie hat es eine Metal-Band mit ihren komplizierten Songs geschafft, sich auf die Höhe von Madonna oder Michael Jackson hinaufzuschwingen? Durch Intuition und Entschlossenheit. Ein Blick zurück auf die Anfänge der wichtigsten Metal-Band der Geschichte.

The Doors, Jim Morrisons Gesangskapelle

Vor 50 Jahren, am 3. Juli 1971, starb Jim Morrison auf mysteriöse Weise in einer Pariser Badewanne und hinterließ seine drei Partner Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger und John Densmore, die sich sechs Jahre lang unermüdlich bemüht hatten, seine Träume in Musik umzusetzen.

Moby – Und es ward Licht

Nur wenige Künstler sind wie Moby vom Punk zum Techno/House und dann zum Pop gewechselt und haben gleichzeitig Ambient komponiert. Anlässlich des Erscheinens von "Reprise", dem Album zu Mobys 30-jährigen Jubiläum, blickt Qobuz auf die Karriere eines Künstlers zurück, der einige Gegenschläge einstecken musste und sich manchmal beinahe selbst sabotierte, bevor er in Ruhe seinen künstlerischen Weg gehen konnte.
