Guitar Gangsters - 4 Albuns...

 "Captain Oi!" Mark Brennan is fighting the corner for British post punk guitar "street rock" and needs two more tracks to complete his Underground Rockers vinyl compilation on Link Records. So he turns to the former guitarist (Pete Ley) and bass player (Phil Ley) of the Stones influenced London band Under The Gun and puts them in the studio one Saturday afternoon with The Business drummer Micky Fairbairn. The result was Gotta Get Out Of Here, When The Razor Cuts and Everybody Wants To Be My Friend – the latter two songs providing Mark with the two killer tracks he needed to open the album. All he needed now was a name for the band… What he needed was a name that lived up to his vision of the emerging wave of guitar bands filling the void left by the demise of punk – Guitar Gangsters fitted perfectly and seemed ideal for a guitar band whose personalities were probably irrelevant. After all, this would be Guitar Gangsters only ever release! Sitting alongside Mega City Four, The Sect and The Crack, Guitar Gangsters were in good company on the compilation but the two GG tracks grabbed the attention and the fact that nobody knew who the band were added to the interest. So never slow to miss an opportunity, Mark invited the band to record an album.
