(1979) and Solid Gold (1980) and hit singles such as "At Home He's a Tourist," "Damaged Goods," "Anthrax," "What We All Want" and "I Love a Man in a Uniform."

Gill also produced much of Gang of Four's output, including their most recent 2011 release, and albums for many other artists including the debut album for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Jesus Lizard, The Stranglers, The Futureheads, Michael Hutchence, Killing Joke, Polysics, Fight Like Apes, Therapy? and The Young Knives.[2][3]
