December, 1979

British Punk

No less strong than the legendary Damned Damned Damned, Machine Gun Etiquette brings in a wide variety of touches and influences to create a record that most of the Damned's contemporaries could never have approached.

Lucky Jim

1994

Alternative Pop/Rock

Jeffrey Lee Pierce was in poor health and his band the Gun Club was in shambles when they holed up in the Netherlands to record 1994's Lucky Jim. It turned out to be their final album, and an unexpected triumph. Left to play lead guitar after the sudden departure of Kid Congo Powers, Pierce's six string skills were strong here, and the sorrow and regret that informs this music is gripping and eloquent.
