The Gun Club were a highly influential post-punk/ blues band from Los Angeles, CA that existed from 1979 to 1996. Created and led by talented maverick singer songwriter-guitarist Jeffrey Lee Pierce, they merged the contemporary genre of punk rock with the more traditional genres of rockabilly and country music, alongside X, the Flesh Eaters and the Blasters. The Gun Club has been called a "tribal psychobilly blues" band and initiators of the U.S. wave of Cowpunk.
Sex Beat 81 is a live album, recorded in 1981 and eventually released in 1984. It’s not been reissued on vinyl until now, and comes out on RSD Black Friday on translucent yellow vinyl, with reproductions of the original labels, and an OBI spine.
