Gang Of Four - Damaged Goods (ProShot DVD)

As promised to dace Sez, here's an excellent compilation of Gang of Four videos. Thanks to the original uploader.

Original Info File:

Ok, all you proles, here's the full version of the Go4 Rockpalast show, along with a few extras, all from the
"History of Damaged Goods" boot compilation. According to my research there is no commercially available video of Gang of Four, save for the performance from the film "Urgh! A Music War," which has been recently released on DVD. As such, that performance has been edited out. Additionally, my first upload of this torrent contained a clip from the old "Dance Fever" TV show in 1982, with the band performing "I Love a Man in Uniform." I foolishly failed to notice that this clip was not in fact a live performance, but a lip-synch to an edited version of the album release. I have removed that performance from the torrent for this re-upload. Sources, video and sound quality vary somewhat as they are from multiple VHS sources. The highlights certainly are the NYC and the Rockpalast shows. I will up some screenshots. We all know more or less what to expect from 80's VHS transfers--the NYC and Rockpalast performances are very watchable. Atlanta is a bit dark but not without reward; Whistle Test is on the lesser side, quality wise but worth a glimpse for fans. Overall, I doubt anyone will be disappointed.
