Here's a great photo of JEFFREY LEE PIERCE and KID CONGO POWERS of THE GUN CLUB (posted on facebook by Powers who was also in another awesome band, THE CRAMPS). Jeffrey Lee died today in 1996.

I got to see The Gun Club at the Town and Country Club in London in 1990 when they had reformed. Jeffrey was probably a tortured soul but his records are great. I bought my first Gun Club records in 1987 (both on the same day and incidentally their best and their worst!). Gone too soon.
