SPIN.com's Peter Gaston sat down for a chat with seminal dance-punkers Gang of Four's Andy Gill and Jon King before they took the stage; watch Peter talk with the duo about their process on their forthcoming full-length (their first of original material since 1995's Shrinkwrapped), as well as their newly released single, "Second Life."
