A GunFight! at the BK Corral

Straight jackets couldn’t stop the band from their maniacal movement on stage as though possessed by the party itself, their silhouettes like dancing shadows battling with instruments.

GunFight! – A Retail Job from kodezero on Vimeo.

I always dug GunFight! I met Bill well after I first heard his music. When our venue fell through last minute, he allowed us to do the inaugural Art Pussy show (Born Into This) in his enormous loft. It was a perfect stage for the madness that would ensue that night. It wasn’t until the second year of Brain-Cave that I actually got to see him and rest of the band in action, and what a treat it was…

That’s the thing with bands like this. You just gotta see them live. Energy of insanity, they have this steadiness that carries you through each song as though you were runnin’ toward the edge of a cliff, intent on diving into that great big ocean with no guarantee of survival. Straight jackets couldn’t stop the band from their maniacal movement on stage as though possessed by the party itself, their silhouettes like dancing shadows battling with instruments. At some point someone even enjoyed a bubbly beer shower and didn’t skip a beat. The crowd was nothing more than a large group of innocent bystanders, caught in the cross fire of the bullet ballet that is GunFight!
