Cassettes and Shows
We just put all of the cassettes we've released over the years (seven of them!) on the internet at bandcamp CLICK HERE , so if you've ever wanted to experience the cruder side of Gun Outfit you can now do so. A lot of our best stuff was put out on those tapes. Our records tend to be more smooth (because they can be) while the tapes are noisier. Some, like the first demo, are almost unlistenable, so be forewarned. We've always hesitated to put this stuff on the internet because I enjoy the fact that only people who actually go to our shows or talk to us can hear it, but at some point it seems needlessly exclusive (especially in regard to our most recent Euro tour tape). They are there if you want them.
Friday March 18th is the release day for our new 12" EP. It's about as long as you can get for a 45 rpm LP and has five songs. This was our first recording not on the west coast (we travelled to NY to record at Kutch 1 studios) and we took advantage of the abundance of great musicians in NY by collaborating with Joe Denardo and Will Lawrence. D. Harris played bass and ebow. It's a 500 press and from what I understand it's already nearly sold out so pick it up if you see it.
Europe tour was amazing- thank you to everyone who came out and put on our shows for us. It was a dream playing with Henry on sitar and getting to stretch out our sets past the hour mark. Playing with Anton again was also very fun. We don't have anymore tapes so if you want one try to hustle one off a European.
Got a couple of short tours on the horizon, but now the exciting thing is writing the next record. We'll keep you posted.
