gun club cemetery Gun Club Cemetery (CD, £1.50)label: 359 Music
“I never knew Alex wrote ballads till last year. They’re very big and beautiful songs, which is a hard thing to create for an ex-boxer.” - Alan McGee. Gun Club Cemetery love good old-fashioned, down and dirty guitar music but like the bands who have inspired them – The Faces and The Stones – they can also turn a hand to a sensitive, heart-rending piano ballad. Formed just over a year ago, the band are fronted by Perth-based singer Alex Lowe (vocals, piano, guitar). Gun Club Cemetery release their debut album on the back of their single ‘Needle Aside’. Alan originally got to know Alex when he was singer in Creation Records band Hurricane #1 in the late 1990s. Their self-titled debut boasts infectious retro guitar grooves (Black Keys and Oasis). Alex's new-found love of Americana contrasts bar-room rockers to heart-rending slowies. Gun Club Cemetery have already kicked up a storm with a self-produced digital EP. “Gun Club Cemetery are a cool new combo.” - Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets).
