31 Songs Of Halloween: The Gun Club: For The Love Of Ivy

21.10.14


Combining the roughness of punk with traditional American music, country and the blues, Gun Club’s first record, Fire Of Love, is one of a kind.


Mostly conceived by Jeffrey Lee Pierce and produced by Tito Larriva (The Plugz, Tito & Tarantula), the album was released in 1981 and has influenced countless musicians since.

As if a bunch of cowboys turned punk and flipped the bird on their hillbilly lives, The Gun Club was the most American post-punk could ever get. There’s no wrong in any of the rest of their discography, but those first two records and especially Fire Of Love, are the ones that qualify as “masterpieces”.
