If life hasn’t thrown you a few curveballs over the years, then clearly you ain’t doing things right. After all, who wants to tread the straight and narrow route down the path of tedious predictability when a few diversions here and there can liven things up?
And if any band knows a thing or two about curveballs – and, more crucially, how to knock ‘em out of the park – then it’s Glasgow’s favourite hard rockers GUN. Hit albums and singles, break-ups, line-up changes… GUN have done them all and more, and at each turn have come back stronger and better than before.
GUN’s contemporary take on authentic rock gave them an edge over their peers during the mid-80s. Formed in Glasgow by the Gizzi brothers, they came to re-invent the rock ‘n’ roll genre. Their debut album, ‘Taking On The World’, brought with it many successful singles, appearances, and guest slots with acts such as; The Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi, Simple Minds, Bryan Adams and Def Leppard
With critically acclaimed albums, singles, many awards and line up changes under their belt, GUN decided to call it a day in 1998. Fast forward 10 years to 2008 which saw GUN being awarded with the prestigious Nordoff Robbins Tartan Clef award for ‘Scotland’s Best Live Band’, leading to the band reuniting to an enthusiastic response.
September 2018 saw GUN release their hotly anticipated studio album “Favourite Pleasures”, the album received immense praise from fans and press alike.
“Ever since they reunited nearly a decade ago, Gun have been threatening to break out with an album packed with hits from stem to stern. Well, now they’ve done it.” – Malcom Dome (Classic Rock)
“Now finding themselves hitting new heights of power and armed with a record that could go toe-to-toe with their peers of both yesterday and today, Gun are fully loaded and shooting to thrill.” – 7/10 Andy Macdonald (Drowned in Sound)
Gun finished 2018 with a slew of dates around the UK and Europe, as well as extensive tour planned for 2019!
