628 Swagger by Gun


Release year
Chris Sheldon

On the third album Swagger by Gun, the Scottish rockers successfully combine American influenced 80s AOR rock and 90s hard rock

Author & Special Guests

Scotland's Gun didn't make much of a dent stateside in the 80s or 90s, slightly out of tune with what was happening in mainstream. Their third album, Swagger, is aptly named, as the band is fully in control of their 80s AOR meets 90s hard rock approach. While 1994 was ground zero for grunge and alternative on US radio and MTV, Gun injected their sound with Bon Jovi big rock, Billy Idol energy, and even some Red Hot Chili Peppers funk on the questionable cover of "Word Up" by Cameo.
