Digging: Nero di Marte - Immoto. Album Rating: 4. I found that song on my youtube recommendations whilst I was writing essays for university. Then I got the album and I was like how the hell has no one reviewed this brilliant piece of work? Pretty sure I've heard Race With the Devil on several heavy metal compilation albums but never anything else I'll check this out at some point.
Review is good, have a pos. Three Man Army, the band the Gurwitz brothers started after Gun is also really nice. Digging: Pet Shop Boys - Hotspot. Great guitar work, cool drumming and the vocals are nice.
Yellow Cab Man is the song I enjoyed more. Props for reviewing this album. It opens with the band's hit and signature tune "Race With the Devil". It's a quite simple and basic boogie, but spiced up with brass-fanfares, hysterical evil laughter and an infectious, razor-sharp guitar riff from Adrian Curtis.
The most grandiose moment on the album and that says quite a lot is the ballad "Rat Race" that is stuffed to the rim with choirs, strings and swirling harps. The contrast couldn't have been bigger to the minute closer "Take Off" that is the hardest rocking and most intense moment the album has to offer, but even this one ends with some classical influenced strings. In April , GUN announced on Rockradio that they were to reform and confirmed that Jepson would join the band on a permanent basis, replacing Mark Rankin as vocalist, who gave his blessing to the reformation and new line-up.
They played several festival dates before launching their own headline tour. New material has also been recorded, with a release to coincide with the 20th anniversary of their first album, Taking On the World. This was followed by an appearance at Rockers, Midland Street, Glasgow, Scotland on 11 July as a warm up for their appearance on the main stage at the T in the Park music festival, the following day. Shields replaced McNeil for one song, "Better Days". Shields also played drums, along with McNeil, at the aftershow warm-down at Rockers, Glasgow.
They subsequently went out on tour and played venues in Inverness, Aberdeen and Edinburgh in May The Inverness gig saw the debut of "Let Your Hair Down" which the band then went on to play at both subsequent venues in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. York and Wolverhampton dates were completed in June. November saw the band play Lisbon, Portugal.
GUN supported Lynyrd Skynyrd on the UK leg of their tour, and followed this with the Popkiller Part 1 tour to promote their new mini-album of the same name. They also stated the band's future would be considered and that updates on this would follow in due course. In late July , the Gun website was updated.
It was announced that Dante Gizzi would move from bass guitar to lead vocals and a new bass player was confirmed in October as Derek Brown, former guitar technician for the band during the "Swagger" tour. Gun released their fifth album Break the Silence on 9 July , and played the Pepsi Max stage at the Download Festival the same year. October saw the release of a 25th anniversary of their first album Taking on the World. This was a three disc special edition release with b-sides, live tracks, and other songs.
The first show saw the band playing their first album, Taking On The World , in its entirety. The second night, they will play the album Gallus , and on the third night, Swagger. On 23 March , the follow up to Break the Silence was released, named Frantic. December also saw the release of a limited edition Frantic Box Set which included one of only copies of the band's first full concert DVD recorded earlier in the year where the tour began, in the same place it ended: Gun Live at the Barrowlands.
There are a lot of those brave men looking down proudly at all of us, and now your efforts bring even more pride. Keep up the good work. Take good care, and be safe out there, deb KeepingTheAceMemory.
The concept for the video is that we open with no music, and we see a group of guys walking into what we later learn is the museum. They say nothing, and we realize they are Vietnam Vets.
As I got older, I learned what it was. It breaks my heart the way he was treated when he came home. So Uncle Joe provided a good counterbalance to my father. I miss him. BTW, how do you post photos inline in a post?? Is that right John D? Administrators of the site can add pictures to an existing post, but I believe a new post has to be done for members.
John D. That is the way on my computer. You can also copy and paste on a post to add. Some update stopped that.Bright Yellow Gun Lyrics: With your bright yellow gun / You own the sun / And I think I need a little poison / To keep me tame / Keep me awake / I have nothing to offer but confusion / And the.
