Heres some about us.
WE ARE NOT PUNK and DO NOT CLAIM TO BE, SO GET OVER IT.
The Stun Gunz, (A.K.A The Stun Guns), are
an American Rock and Roll band, from New
Jersey. Formed in early 2004, from the remainders
of several outfits that draw influences from
1970s punk music. Their sound is extreemly
concentrated towards a heavy Rockabilly influence
from the 1940s as well as early 1950s which
creates a formidable delivery that is deployed,
with intense stage action reminiscent of
Chuck Berry, Ten Years After, Alvin Lee, Chris Spedding
and The Rolling Stones (in their early 1960s careers) through use,
of held power chords and thickly saturated
bass and fast picking. This style still retains
it's long rooted tradition, in punk music
as well as roots rock and in the similar
rock steady influenced sound engineering.
They had been cited by Matt dangerfield of
the UK seminal group THE BOYS, for the recent recording, "First Time".
One of the groups higher charting releases
from the late 1970's.
