Gun at Nottingham Rock City 2009

First up were New Device, a very good young rock band. Good vibe, good sound and tight musicians. Very enjoyable to watch, I won't be buying any if their CDs though.

Gun, to my surprise had the ex-little angel Toby Jepson singing for them. A deeper voice than the original singer, but still very good. They opened with don't say it's over, which is one of my favourite songs. About halfway through the show was stopped by Toby as someone was starting a fight. He demanded they were thrown out as there was no place for that behaviour at a Gun gig. Inside, outside of love included a cover of the Police's So Only. All the way through, Gun made it clear that Les Paul guitars were made for Rock bands like this. They finished with Steel Your Fire and Shame on you. And Encored, of course, with a superb Word Up, the place erupted.
