The Godfathers: Birth, School, Work, Reunion Tour, Then Death

godfathers370Late-‘80s British post-punkers the Godfathers, best-known for college-radio fave “Birth, School, Work, Death,” are reforming their original lineup for a February U.S. tour, the band’s first in nearly 20 years. The group previously reunited on Feb. 14, 2008, for one of its traditional St. Valentine’s Day Massacre shows; this year’s version appropriately takes place in Chicago, scene of the famous crime.
