Gun - S/T
The self titled 1968 debut from a short-lived rock band that made Cream look like pussies. Maybe that's overstating things, but this record is great and it has fucking demons on the cover, which has always been a major selling point for me. This album has become increasingly harder to find, which is a real shame considering how progressive this band was. If you're a fan of awesome fuzzy blues riffs, proto-metal, or 70's horror movies (some of the more orchestrated tracks sound like they're straight out of an Argento film) you'll like this. Oh, according to allmusic.com two of the members of Gun played with Ginger Baker for awhile. The blog post comes full circle.
