Best ever toon on a Monday night

I bought the two Gun Club LP's "The Las Vegas Story" and "The Birth, The Death, The Ghost" in one go thru mailorder in circa 1985. I saw them at the Town & Country Club in London in 1990 when Jeffrey Lee Pierce had re-formed the band. When I returned from Australia in 1996 I turned on the radio and heard he'd died. This track is from "Lucky Jim", their awesome swansong from '93. Jeffrey's music is always described as swamp rock. Personally, I've always had images of the desert flash on my inner cinema when I hear their music.
