Idles are among those paying tribute to legendary Gang Of Four guitarist Andy Gill.

Idles’ contribution to The Problem Of Leisure: A Celebration Of Andy Gill And Gang Of Four is streaming online now.

“IDLES does not exist without Gang Of Four,” the band say. “Damaged Goods still sounds new and exciting after the millionth listen. We jumped at the chance to just to play it, let alone record it. It was an honour, a joy and a privilege.”
