The Gun Club Destroy The Country on Colored LP

First Pressing on Colored Vinyl

The Gun Club was formed by Jeffrey Lee Pierce and Kid Congo Powers in Los Angeles in 1980, and was one of the first bands to blend punk with blues, country and other American roots music. Initially called The Creeping Ritual, they went through several line-up changes before settling on the Gun Club, a name suggested by Circle Jerks singer Keith Morris. 

The band released 7 albums during its illustrious career, the first of which was 1981’s Fire of Love. After a tour supporting Siouxsie & The Banshees, the band decided to split up, and played their farewell shows in the winter of 1984, but reformed with a new line-up in 1987. The band released its final album, Lucky Jim in 1983. The Gun Club has been cited as an influence by many bands and artists, including The White Stripes, who covered "For The Love of Ivy" and "Jack On Fire" at live shows, Henry Rollins, The Pixies, The Von Blondies and Mark Lanegan, who covered Miami’s opening track "Carry Home" on his album I’ll Take Care of You

First ever authorized issue of the Gun Club's classic 1984 European bootleg Destroy The Country. Features a brilliant performance recorded live in Italy in 1983 that finds the band absolutely on fire throughout. Available on special colored vinyl with printed sleeve courtesy of Cleopatra Records.
