The Gun Club

Went to The MOCA to catch the "Under The Big Black Sun" exhibit the other day, it was for the most part a very inspiring collection of California art, well worth the $5 while it is still in town. One of the main pieces they had was a room dedicated to the art surrounding the Los Angeles punk scene of the 80s. The exhibit featured show posters, still pictures, and live videos of bands like The Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, X, and Flipper. One band in particular that I have always been a fan of were The Gun Club. They were a post-punk band that blended punk,blues, and rockabilly together. They released a few iconic records including Miami, and Fire of Love. I love the stop and go fury of "Preaching The Blues." For me, The Gun Club were a standout group from this scene.
