01. Eternity Is Here
Jeffrey Lee Pierce, for all intents and purposes, was the Gun Club. From
his days as a peroxided teen-punk, through
a lengthy era when he seemed convinced he could channel the spirit of Robert
Johnson, to a more recent probe of the seedier side of continental balladry.
Pierce, who died in Utah at the end of March
1996, always presented a highly individual, albeit sometimes dazed'n'confused,
vision of a soul in torment. Danse Kalinda
Boom is a live set from 3-9-1983, from the Gun Club's swampy period, which
spawned their most powerful rock sets.
On this album both Pierce and Kid Congo sound positively adrenalized, particularly
on the feral "Sleeping
in Blood City." As the Gun Club was a great live band, this CD can be recommended
for it's added atmosphere alone.
