I always thought the 1983 “Death Party” EP from THE GUN CLUB was pretty much their last gasp, and I don’t believe I’d get too many dissenters. In fact, I think it’s the best thing they did outside of their genius first album, as both the “Miami” and “The Las Vegas Story” LPs were fatally flawed.

Take a listen to this intense, wrenching bottle-blues beloved by goths, punks, rootsy Americana lovers and death cultists alike when it came out in ‘83.
