Influences
Their sound is extreemly concentrated towards a heavy Psychobilly and Rocknroll (yes Punk lots of it, even some Joy Division and Warsaw's Ian Curtis, synth pop pounded in for the real goths of the 1980's were not messin' around either). Major 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.

Band Bio

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.

In The Beginning

The band was originaly based in Somerset and had moved their operation point to Bergen County, New Jersey. Their first release was Radioactive Lizard attack.They have recently had breif appearances, on the Vans Warped Tour.

They have made several New York City, Times Square as well as MTV appearances, during 2008 summer and have drawn attention from local stores, for disturbing the peace, during a lunchtime rooftop performance that caused a rush on record sales at the Virgin Megastore as well.
