Give Her The Gun: "Now's The Time..."
EP Digital and Limited Physical Release - Monday 14th September 2012
I think I'll have to bag it up in the equally vast but more meaningful wasteland called Fusion. To narrow things down a bit I think I shall helpfully and more precisely define it to be "Dark Fusion."
It encompasses all sorts of genres that have passed this way before - notably Stranglers/Roxy Music-type Glam/Rock/Punk, some exceedingly good Industrial Electronica a la Einstürzende Neubauten or Faust, a dash of Pomp and a gert-big dollop of good old-fashoined straight-down-the-line Rock'n'Roll!
More immediately and importantly Give Her The Gun is the direct descendent of the recently extinct and lamented cock-rockers(?) LeftHand Red.
In other words, it really is a unique stand-alone creation worthy of consideration of all music-lovers and heading I anticipate for the stately destination of 'Masterpiece' for The Few ie You and Me [The Cogniscenti] - a bold claim I accept but I'm sure there are Others out there who will join me in acclaiming this work to be just that!
I cannot describe how satisfying and challenging I've found listening to and exploring this mini-album to be. "The Creators" [I think I'll call them that] proclaim Give Her The Gun to be 'a fictional band set in a post-apocalyptic time' and the world they inhabit to be 'connected to the band-penned novels 'Caden's Journals' '[if you can sort out my liberally-sprinkled apostrophes!] - a new chapter of which will be released every few weeks and it is intended to publish a complete new novel every 18-24 months.
And as with all their other activities, including their 1st album which is due in 2013, the novel will be released under the auspices of the mysteriously titled production company "Arcane Alliance".
I thoroughly recommend this very imaginative meandering 6-track EP and suggest you make every effort to support this ambitious and very worthwhile project.
Could this be the "Sergeant Pepper's" of the new Millennium?
I believe that we should suck it and see!
