On my way back from little Tokyo supermarket, where I bought plenty of vitamins, tiger balm, tea and fresh ginger to cure my flu, I passed the LA gun club building. This sign immediately evoked the voodoo-ish rhythms and guitars of The Gun Club and I heard Jeffrey Lee's voice loud and clearly in my head. Memories of the 1983 show at Rote Fabrik in Zurich came up. The show was like magic to me and alongside w/ The Cramps and The Birthday Party they totally ruled my late teenage years!
