The Gun Club - Miami (1982)

















"One very strange thing here for a punk LP is Ward [Dotson]'s extensive use of slide guitar. Ward says he was influenced by "The Sun Sessions by Elvis, I mean Scotty Moore's playing, I was trying to cop all his licks at that time. I knew Jeff[rey Lee Pearce]'s 'real' musical tastes and he too loved pop, ala girl groups, Burt Bacharach, Brian Wilson, Roy Wood, plus all the obvious ones (country blues, Iggy, etc....)." There is one interesting thing about the sound of this record: the space given to each individual musician. Nobody appears to be carrying anybody else; it's almost like N.Y. punk-heroes Television in everybody's reliance on weaving in with everybody else." Stevo Olende, Perfect Sound Forever

Jeffrey Lee Pierce: vocals, piano, lead guitar
Ward Dotson: guitar
Terry Graham: drums

Rob Ritter: bass
D.H. Laurence Jr.: backing vocals
