Gun Club Miami Limited 180gram Audiophile LP

The Gun Club was formed by Jeffrey Lee Pierce, former head of the Blondie fan club in Los Angeles. Joining him was Brian Tristan, who was later renamed Kid Congo Powers during his stint with The Cramps. By 1982, the band had signed to Blondie guitarist Chris Stein's Animal Records and temporarily relocated to New York to record 1982's Miami. This album features Stein as producer, and you can hear Debbie Harry on backup vocals on select tracks. Going for a higher, more desolate sound, frontman and slide player Jeffrey Lee Pierce and his band were literally on fire. The songs here, from "Carry Home", "Like Calling Up Thunder", "Devil in the Woods", "Watermelon Man", "Bad Indian" and "Texas Serenade" center themselves on a mutant form of country music that meets the post-punk ethos. This is hardcore snake-charming music, evil, smoky, and brash. In the bird's-eye view of history its songs are all classics.

First 1.000 copies were pressed as double LP [MOVLP645] with previously unreleased live recordings. SOLD OUT!
