GUN The Embassy Club,  London 12 October 2009

The Embassy Club has to be the most swankiest club in the UK to host a night of metal mayhem.  Run by DJ Krusher Joule, in the heart of Mayfair, it also has played a fine host to some great gigs by upcoming bands, reformations, parties by Iron Maiden and a celeb filled bash by Metal Hammer.  Sometimes you'd think that Princess Bea will be walking down the stairway jangling her metal jewellery.

Tonight Gun are in town to promote their forthcoming tour and EP featuring ex Little Angels singer Toby Jepson.  This was to be a secret show.  It was so secret in fact, that Gun fans didn't find out about it until on the day of the gig, meaning making plans with friends to come out on a Monday night at such short notice almost impossible.

David Lee Roth once infamously said from the Wembley Arena stage ''Hey it's Monday night.  It's the first night of the weekend'', something I've always adhered too.  So it was down to us regulars to enjoy a short acoustic set from Toby Jepson and Gun founder Jools Gizzi.

I was quite impressed by the sound the two made acoustically playing a upbeat 'Better Days' ,the song has a new breath of live when heard in an acoustic form. We got a look at the future in the shape of a new song from a forthcoming EP which will be available on the full electric tour. 'Let Your Hair Down' was a great rocking track with some great riff changes, a little punky too.  Can't wait to hear this with the full band plugged in.

Ending with 'Shame On You' the duo then chatted and mingled with the crowd before getting an early night after a long hard day doing radio interviews.  I could have done with a longer set simply because what they played was great.

An enjoyable evening.
