Album Notes
Guns of Nevada are true believers in PBR: Punk, Blues, Rock. Made up of four veterans of the Seattle music scene, these guys have been soaked in all three styles. Liberally stealing from the likes of the Ramones, AC/DC, and The Man in Black, it’s a sound that really shouldn’t work but somehow does.

They’re a spaghetti western with beat up Les Pauls and a lot more sweat. The Guns of Nevada are the loudmouths that no one invited but everyone wants to drink with. They have played with such bands as The Supersuckers, Nashville Pussy, The Blasters, Malfunkshun and other great Seattle area bands. Hell, they've even played the side stage at the Gorge Amphitheater for the likes of Tom Petty, Joe Cocker and Toby Keith. They've been played on radio stations from Texas to Spain Connecticut to Seattle and their music was even featured prominently in the CMT show "Chopper Challenge". The song themes range from lamenting the demise of rock n’ roll outlaws to the lonely moments when the bottle isn’t enough to get that one girl off your mind. This is a band that can’t be ignored but sure as hell can be bought. Whiskey anyone?



to write a review

Otis Lantz (Writer)

You don\'t get much of the Southern rock sound here in the Pacific Northwest, at least, not nearly enough. But a band of rebels have been tearing up the scene, breaking hearts and busting eardrums with their own blend of punk, Southern fried rock n\' roll, a dash of blues, and a hell of a lot of power and soul.
A little over a year ago, four veterans of the Seattle music scene got together to form Guns Of Nevada, a heavy hitting dose of rock with a style so classic that it\'s been made fresh again. They\'ve been busy over the last year; they\'ve played dozens of shows, had two songs featured on CMT\'s \"Chopper Challenge\", and, most recently, completed their first LP, set to be released October 11 during a CD release party at the Central Saloon in Seattle. It\'s a big date for them, because it marks the anniversary of their first show at the same venue.
When I caught up with them, they were playing a benefit show at the Cedarwood in Milton for DJ No Name, formerly of KNDD 107.7 FM \'The End\'. They rocked, rolled, drank some beer, raised some hell, and altogether played a killer set.
I did my thing; sat at a table, drank club soda with lime, listened, wrote a few notes in my book, then asked a few questions. Mostly, I just sat back and enjoyed the show. Their set got cut a little short, due to time constraints, but they gave it all, pouring their blood, sweat, and beers, into every tune they had time to play.
Their set was flawless, and it shook the house. I\'ve had a chance to listen to the new CD before it\'s been released, and Guns of Nevada exceeded every expectation of their performance that I had. They put on an awesome show, performed great, and the energy and stage presence added to the impressions I already had for their songs. Of course, there were tracks I hadn\'t heard yet (The band does an excellent cover of June and Johnny\'s \"Jackson\", as well as their version of \"F the CC\" by Steve Earle.), but I\'ve not been able to stop listening to them since then. The CD is fantastic. The tracks flow together perfectly, and every one of them rock. You simply must own this CD.
When I got the chance to sit down with frontman Earle Thunders, lead guitarist Disco Donnie Guns, and bassist Reverend Adumb Green (Drummer DH Lynch split as soon as the show was over. He had more important things waiting at home. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink), I really had one main question. Why aren\'t these guys signed to a major label yet? Rev. Adumb answered my question emphatically.
\"Why aren\'t we signed? Cuz we don\'t give a shit. No one gets signed anymore. Everything is on the internet. You gotta give away music nowadays. You owe a label four hundred grand, you get to use their sound stage? My little brother (Jeremiah Green) is in Modest Mouse and he doesn\'t make shit on record sales. It\'s all live shows and t-shirts. And I think we know that, like, we know that we have to play and that\'s our favorite thing in the world.\"
The Reverend preached on for a while more, then we talked for a little longer, smoking cigarettes, and shared a few laughs. There was so much great material, I could write a book, but here\'s a little taste of the conversation that transpired:

Do you guys have plans to release a single?
Earle Thunders
I don\'t think that we really had a plan for a single; we like all the songs. They\'re all awesome to us. We wrote songs that we would like to pop into our CD player and listen to, one after another. We don\'t want duds. Like, we don\'t want to fast forward a song.

Disco Donnie Guns
We had 10 songs, so we were like \"Let\'s put 9 on there.\" We didn\'t want to put the dud on there. (laughs)

Rev. Adumb Green
CDs are so hard to sell now days, and it\'s all going to be on iTunes and CDBaby, so everyone will have a preview of whatever song they like or a couple songs, and buy that one. So we\'re going to send our favorite, probably couple, to some college radio stations, obviously not commercial, but \"God Damn Woman\" is probably our collective favorite to open with, but they\'re not going to play that on the radio is the thing. So if there\'s something that we want when we go to send it to the radio, we\'ll have to circle it.

\"Handcuffs\" has probably gotten the most notice. CMT put it on one of their shows.

Yeah, and \"Outlaws\". It\'ll probably be \"Outlaws\".

I don\'t think our job, really, is to decide what the single is, we just write songs that we like and there\'s other people that can say \"I like this one.\"

Do you have any other big shows coming up besides the October 11th CD release ?

Not really, we\'ve just thrown so much into this CD release party that, I think honestly we\'ve spent a year getting ready for October 11th. You know, we did the first show a year ago there (at Central Saloon) and that was just kind of \"Holy shit, we\'re a real band!\"

We\'re all about this show right now, and I think we\'re just started to book those follow up shows. We\'re gonna go back to Eastern Washington in November hopefully, do Yakima, Richland, Spokane.

How do you guys prep for a show?

(At this point, two slightly toasted women stumbled up and were quickly shooed away by Adumb. The others continued with the question.)

Hey, we\'re doing an interview right now.

I think at first we used to just get wasted.

And we practice on Wednesday. (Laughs) I\'m really superstitious, like, if we have a good practice it\'s gonna be a shitty show, and if we have a shitty practice, it\'s gonna be a great show.

I think we\'ve learned after a few shows that, uh, we love the booze. We\'re entrenched in booze-soaked rock and roll. It\'s what we do, and we can get carried away real easily. But I think we\'ve also learned that as much as we love booze and rock and roll, we want to play good, so we look at each other and give the eye, see if we\'ve tipped over the edge.

How about after the show, how do you wind down?

Donnie takes a walk.

Earle likes to walk off, leave all his stuff on stage…

Like it is now.

…I immediately grab my stuff and pull it off stage so I can get ready to go. I like to be in my truck and done. That way I don\'t worry about anything else, go inside have a beer and talk to some girls.

I like everyone to tell me how awesome I am.

Yeah, how\'s that been going tonight? (laughs)

Who\'s the bigger badass, John Rambo of the Rambo series, or John McClane from the Die Hard series?

See, there\'s two problems I\'m having. Rambo shot that arrow, he\'s like a f-cking great shot with an arrow, but John McClane he walked through the World Trade Center barefoot! Glass everywhere! And he said \"Yippy Ki Yay, motherf-ucker\" and then jumped out. I\'m gonna go John McClane. I think we\'ll all agree.

Yeah, I say John McClane.

Rambo, when it comes right down to it, just wants to cuddle up. He just wants to be loved.

And he\'s shorter than me! He\'s shorter than me in real life.

We talked for a while about ships and sails and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings, and then said our goodbyes. As I walked away back to my car, I knew that I had just been in the presence of future greatness, I could almost smell the future success of Guns Of Nevada. Or maybe that was just Adumb\'s b.s.
