I have the Ruby?Expanded Italian version, why I don't know. Gun Club is one of those bands that made me swoon when I saw them live no matter how fucked up JLP was. The embodiment of raw sex and the hopeless ecstasy of heroin blues punk whatever. Real life, raw painful glorious.

• Gun Club rode a hybrid, slide-guitar blues-meets-punk sound straight into obscurity. This Los Angeles quartet, fronted by troubled singer Jeffrey Lee Pierce, counted many musicians and critics among their fans, but their tweener sound and Pierce’s struggles with drugs and alcohol were too much to overcome. Pierce launched an equally fruitless solo career in ’85, passed away in ’96, and Gun Club’s harrowing, ghost-out-of-hell albums – including this excellent debut – have slipped into the shadows.
