Suggested donation of $5.
If you can't afford/don't think this is worth $5, these songs will be available to stream, or you can get it for whatever dollars or nothing and your email. The next best thing to paying for the record is to explicitly share it, follow us on social media, and when tempted to click "like" instead click "share" on our social experiments. We don't presume to deserve your money, attention, or social salesmanship, but know that it inspires and allows us to make more music. So if you like this, and wish us to do our thing some more, please consider the above.
Volume 1 is made up of the first batch of songs Steve wrote with Justin as they scrambled the wreckage of their lives back together after the fall of their band Philoceraptor. They bothered to do so because Gun Control is a good band name. Very rare. They didn't really feel complete until Matt magically appeared from the internet ether to play
bass. Matt's the best.
Volume 1 has been finished for over a year, but Steve broke the hell out of his elbow while playing squash against Justin. It seemed stupid to release a record that couldn't actually be played at the time. Steve's fine by the way.
Gun Control now has a backlog of songs. They hunger to run wild and free on the internet. Like gazelles. Binary gazelles. A CSS stampede. First Volume 1 must scout the terrain. Got to make sure there's enough runway to get to Mars. Yup – Mars.
Creators! If you've got something (hobby or monetized) on the go that could use a Gun Control song hit us up at guncontrolnoise [at] gmail.com
