NME (1/3/69) Gun on Target

The Gun *Drives You Mad (CBS)

Any group’s follow up hit is always more difficult to achieve than its initial chart entry, but I can’t see the Gun having much trouble with this one, because it’s equally as good as "Race With The Devil" provided that you appreciate the group’s shattering hard driving sound.

This is even more frantic than the last an energetic, breath taking, harsh and beefy instrumental sound and a thundering beat, so furious in it’s attack that the vocal is almost driven into the background.

Not a great deal of melody, but excitement galore a disc to leave you limp! But its appeal will be restricted solely to the younger element, even more than was their previous disc.
