Tear it all down and start again... you wanted acceptance, but at what cost? What does any of this mean? We questioned until we unravelled and we rebuilt ourselves with pills and vodka. Pain is part of us. We can't be free, but we can lose ourselves when they aren't looking. This is our website, they put on it what we tell them. Is anybody out there reading this?

We are HISTORY OF GUNS, please kill us.

Free download of new B-sides album APOSPEMIA
All 400 free copies of the new History Of Guns promo CD, APOSPEMIA have now been taken...
but fear not! With thanks to Deathboy, the whole cd is now available for free download from: [here]
Download individual tracks, or just click on History of Guns.zip to get the whole thing.

A quick guide to the tracks:

SAVE BARNEY is electro punk

SPOONBURN is a floaty remix of previous guns track MOONBURN by sometime guns collaborator Daaaan Vincent

BREAK! is dark drum & bass courtesty of Hughes The Reverend

TOMB is live guns

YOU ARE NOTHING is just a load of shouting

INSIDE YOUR HEAD is max and del jamming after a tonne of vodka, then they added a few beats and sfx... Apparently they didn't develop it for the album 'cos they felt it was stylistically a bit similar to stuff from the debut album, FLASHES OF LIGHT LP.

COMMERCIAL contains clips from forthcoming new album APOPHENIA LP and various other things curiously cobbled together into a mildly entertaining sound collage...

New promo CD
And we all thought History Of Guns second album Apophenia would be the next release...
Bizarrely History Of Guns have released a new cd titled "Apospemia (a collection of b-sides)".

This new cd contains soundclips of songs from the forthcoming album mixed up into a curious audio montage, followed by what the band describe as "tracks which in an alternative universe would have been the b-sides to all the massively successful singles from new guns album Apophenia..."

Confused? Have the guns gone too far this time?!
Find out for yourself... a limited quantity of the new promos are available free of charge to visitors to this site

Where is Apophenia?
When asked in the pub when History Of Guns highly anticipated second album APOPHENIA would actually be released, the guns looked a little shifty. Del Gun said it was well all Max's fault... Max Rael mumbled something about it being down to Fester... and Fester just smiled with an insane grin in his eye...
When pressed further as to whether the rumours were true that they'd spent all the profits from sales of Flashes Of Light LP on 500 hour long Whitby Promos that they'd given away for nothing Max Rael said, 'Look the cds will be out when the time is right, that is we've got a plan... right... and there's stuff about funding and everything but we're not gonna let you down... it's just... it's going to be worth the wait'

APOPHENIA TRACKLISTING:
1) Death Of A Nation
2) Your Obedient Servants
3) I Am / You Are
4) One In Three
5) Apophenia
-------------------------------------------------
6) Divide And Conquer
7) Does Anyone Remember The War?
8) TV Spotlight

16th February'05
Made the background yellow. The band apparently want the site to be more visually striking... also added the fromm quotes, oh and added more history of guns collaborators to the 'who?' section.

11th January'05
Funding for History Of Guns next CD 'APOPHENIA' is proving as tricky as ever... clutching at straws the band have decided to add a link on the website allowing any kindly cyberspace passersby to donate money to the cause!... also started adding sleevenotes to the stories section.

Old news item removed:

"Have great holidays, and remember: this is the time of year when most people are unhappy. That's why they started all the solstice rituals, to begin with. Problem is, buying and receiving gifts doesn't actually fill that empty place - in fact, consumption can exacerbate it.

So chill with some friends, don't worry about not getting as much work done, and get into the slowdown if that's what your body and mind are doing. You'll find a new, seasonally appropriate pace in the next couple of weeks."
- Douglas Rushkoff


10th December'04
Prompted by a recent history of guns review which said, "It's kinda hard actually understanding who this guys are, the band has a keyboard player who claims that he doesn't play anymore, a bass player who turned out to be a pathological layer and a singer that, can't actually be referred to as a singer, and the drums section, it's steel blurred, drummer or drum machines. The band doesnít exactly help revealing the identity of itís players, some changed along the years, some came back, and as much as itís hard to understand whatís going on with those guys" (sic were appropriate)... There's now a new section cunningly titled, 'Who?'

25th November'04
Changes to the front page... quick links at the top... news items... you know the kind of thing

17th November'04
Oh err I've done loads of updates since the last one below, I just seem to have forgotten to log them. My sincere apologies to any dedicated readers of this little page. Today I finally made the 'Complete Discography' page decent... (tho I still have to add the Whitby promo...)

16th September'04
Added the 'Audio' page... (what do you mean it's about time?!)

August - September'04
More on the site overhaul... nothing exciting, making the fonts all the same... oh and much smaller... yes fed up with the abuse, we are conforming to the dull standards set by all those other modern websites out there...
Personally I don't see what's wrong with clipart, or why the fashion for enormous margins... I say you've got a whole screen... use it!! And I'm not talking about cluttering it up, space is good, just I for one am fed up with these tiny little sites, where you've got more margin than content and all the text is in a tiny font in three word columns!! It's a sign of the times where people are drawn to lush, smooth easy on the eye blandness, and content, navigation takes a back seat. Who wants a fight?

19th August'04
Continuing site overhaul...

18th August'04
Long overdue site overhaul!!! (look it wasn't crap, just err old fashioned ok?!)
Added first guns live pix... new background image... tidied up news page... sorted out gallery...

History Of Guns will be trying out the new line up at a special one off gig!
The gig is on August 14th 2004 at The Marquee Club in Hertford (30 mins by train from London)
The band haven't revealed what setlist they're planning to play... when we last spoke to them in the pub they drunkenly declared they were going to play nothing from their recently released critically aclaimed debut album FLASHES OF LIGHT LP!!! "Just really old songs and brand new ones" slurred a drunken Del Alien.
Tickets are £5.00 in advance or £6.00 on the door... for more info, directions etc. visit The Marquee website


The Mirror Pond EP
The new improved second edition of acclaimed History Of Guns cd The Mirror Pond EP is now available!
The second edition features some sonic enhancements and an extra track, 'PSYCHO'. Whilst stocks last we're offering free replacements of first edition copies! (click here!)


The Meads Of Asphodel 'Jihad EP'
History Of Guns are credited with keyboards on the bonus track 'Assassins Of Allah' on the cd reissue of the Jihad EP from accalimed experimental black metallers The Meads Of Asphodel.
"Last year they (Meads) released a 10" split picture disc with MAYHEM which was limited to 666 copies. This vinyl received the "single of the week" in KERRANG! magazine and orders were many times over the number of copies available. Now, they bring you the same on CD format with two bonus tracks from the controversial English band. So, you get the two popular MAYHEM tracks which are in fact the only studio recordings that exist with the classic line-up; and THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL who follow up on last years' debut with a 5 track mini album of atmospheric black metal, inspired by the 11 September attack."
Available from Amazon
Complete tracklisting: THE MEADS OF ASPHODEL 1) Intro 2) Jihad: The Grisly Din of Killing Steel 3) Paradise 4) Another God in Another Place (+ BONUS TRACKS:) 5) Tanks in the Holy Land 6) Assassins of Allah MAYHEM 7) Freezing Moon 8) Carnage

Updated news

Previous news:
THE MIRROR POND LP
Consumed by business rhetoric, History Of Guns have made the decision to downsize the forthcoming Mirror Pond LP to an EP!!
The tracklisting (subject to argument) will probably be: Moonburn, Tunnel (Skin Can't Breathe), Journey (Mimozine), The Mirror Pond (full version)
(so many brackets!) The remaining songs have errrr either failed to pass History Of Guns variable quality standards, or came from different writing sessions which didn't really fit with the style of the original Mirror Pond sessions with Kev.
In the words of Del Alien, after listening to the rough mix of the full album, 'It'll make the nuts of an EP.'


FLASHES OF LIGHT
On October 30th 2001 History Of Guns announced that their next project is to be a new album of dark electronica provisionally titled, 'Flashes Of Light' to be written and recorded entirely by Max Rael and Del Alien during the winter... Unfortunately it's now summer and so far they've only managed to write half of it! Parts 1 & 2 are sounding pretty exciting thought!

Happy new year and all that kind of stuff...
Well it said the last update to the site was on December 24th, but there's nothing in this log, and i certainly can't remember what it was now! (it can't have been very important!)
Anyway... today i added the box so people can get notified when the main page is updated, created the new Army Of Apathy yahoo group... and generally nipped and tucked at the main page.
Oh and i added the mail order details for the Tribal Sin compilation to the discography page... (apologies for the delay i know people have been after this).

I feel like I've been banging my fucking head against a fucking brick wall for the past twenty-fucking-five years. I feel that if I have to spend one more fucking day staring at this fucking screen I might as well accept the fact that the rest of my life is going to be filled with a series of meaningless tasks, and that I will never achieve or accomplish anything. Not only does society not care, it actively despises... Gnawing away at you until your life and self-respect drain away, curdled and dead.
 

Sometime during December '99 and January '00
 Re-added info about free single to the news section.  Joined 'Not Normal' web ring.  Added 'Quotes' page.  Moved the 'history of history of guns' page to the 'stories' section... is it just me or is this too long?
