The Gun Club - Fire Of Love

It’s just that sound…they came from LA but it’s totally different and I still listen to it all the time because it’s stood up. The lyrics are really good too and I like the production. It’s very low-key, and I just think the stuff is simple but it’s well-executed and well-conceived. They wore their influences on their sleeve, like Robert Johnson, and it’s obvious, which I like. They’re much smarter than most of the punk rock stuff, and it stands out because of it.
