THE KANE GANG - Gun Law


Vocalists Martin Brammer born in Seaham, County Durham and Paul Woods, plus multi-instrumentalist Dave Brewis formed the trio in 1982, after meeting in small local bands, and signed to a small record label, whiReleased in 1985. " Gun Law " was a minor hit both in the U.K. and here in the US. I don't know too much about these guys, and personally I have never heard anything else from them.

But that's OK....let's all enjoy this jem from 1985. That magical transitional period for music Just before the " Eighties " were about to become a decade of Mullets and Guns "N" Roses. YUK!!!

They were part of a short-lived scene centred arounf the north-east of England of bands signed to local label 'Kitchenware.'

Best known of the others was Prefab Sprout, although my own favourites were Martin Stephenson & The Daintees.

Gun Law was, as you say a minor hit, but they enjoyed more success with the love song 'Closest Thing To Heaven'.
