The Gun Club - Fire Of Love


On this date in 1981, The Gun Club released their debut album, Fire Of Love. It contained the single, "Sex Beat".

On this date in 1982, The Gun Club released their second single, "Fire Of Love". Ironically, the song did not appear on their debut album, Fire Of Love. It was on their second album, Miami. The B side of the single, "Walking With The Beast", did not appear on either album.

The Gun Club was part of the Los Angeles scene along with 45 Grave, The Cramps and X. They were part blues-influenced horror punk, part psychobilly. Distinctive lead singer Jeffrey Lee Pierce died of a brain hemorrhage in 1996.
