CBGB club they saw Television and the Ramones.

Andy Gill played an unique guitar sound which had roots in the playing of Wilko Johnson. Johnson was a frenetic guitarist with pub rockers Dr. Feelgood of Britain. The music of Gang of Four has influenced lot of other musical acts. Gill's skeletal, staccato, aggressive guitar influenced the U2. The single of the band
"At Home He's a Tourist" in 1979 featured in the British Top 40.

Another single of the band "Love Like Anthrax" has been appreciated by the critics. Critic Stewart Mason called it as "most notorious song" of the band and also "one of the most unique and interesting songs of its time". The song also reflected the social perspective of the band.

Bass guitarist Dave Allen left the band after a troubled American tour. Buster Jones was inducted in the band but only for a grief period. He was later replaced by Sara Lee. Due to frequent arguments Burnham also left the band.
