Gang Gang Dance Ready ‘God’s Money’ Reissue, Month-Long North American Tour

Four months after a fire destroyed all their equipment in Amsterdam, Gang Gang Dance have bounced back with a month-long North American tour that runs between an August 2 stop in Northampton, MA, and a Bumbershoot appearance on September 5. As we said in a review of their MoMa performance earlier this year, “Gang Gang Dance performances are percussive, celebratory affairs that graze everything from dub to demented pop on the way to creating a sound all their own…every GGD show we’ve ever seen has been strikingly different. That, and a blur.”

Highly recommended stuff in other words, just like the group’s finest hour, 2005’s God’s Money. Long out-of-print on wax, it’ll soon be repressed through Gang Gang’s longtime label, Social Registry.

And now, for some live dates and a clip of our favorite Money shot…
