THE GUN CLUB

FIRE OF LOVE

SUPERIOR VIADUCT

Cata No: SV054
Barcode: 857176003546
Fire of Love is the no-nonsense debut from blues-punk legends
The Gun Club. Formed in 1979—when singer Jeffrey
Lee Pierce taught a young Kid Congo Powers to play
guitar—the band injects the Delta blues, rockabilly and
’60s garage with their own amplified fury.
Originally released in 1981 on Slash’s sub-label Ruby
Records, Fire of Love features the classic second lineup
with Ward Dotson on guitar (replacing Powers, who left
to join The Cramps) and The Bags’ rhythm section. Opener
“Sex Beat” shakes and stutters through a dynamic slab of
American rock ’n’ roll that reverberates throughout the album.“She’s Like Heroin to Me” is perhaps Pierce’s most
famous paean to modern love, elevating him to raucous
demigod of the underground.
Take it straight from Chris D. of The Flesh Eaters, who
(along with Tito Larriva of The Plugz) produced these
sessions: “Fire of Love is probably the definitive record to
come out of this roots revival movement. Several people
have told me that record made them want to start a band
and come to Los Angeles.”
This long out-of-print CD release has been carefully remastered
and features liner notes by Chris D.
