Ghosts And Zombies: The Gun Club Edition

"You're a ghost on the highway,
your gesture´s meaningless,
you're lost to the living men,
trailing souls to the end..."

Ghosts and spirits on Jeffrey Lee Pierce´s trail. He sure sings like a man possessed here, as is in fact the case on all the manic punk-blues-´n-roll songs that make up the Gun Club´s fine ´81 debut Fire Of Love. Bonus points go to Ward Dotson´s sharp slide.

"I had to do something, I was wearing down,
I was goin´ down...
Why can no one ever touch a fire spirit?
Why can no one ever hold a fire spirit?
Why can no one ever feel a fire spirit?"

Good question that.
