Deutsch Amerikansiche Freundschaft (“German American Friendship”; most commonly abbreviated to D.A.F.) was founded as a five-piece industrial noise outfit in Düsseldorf in 1978, but ultimately winnowed down to a two-man group consisting of vocalist/lyricist Gabi Delgado and drummer/electronic musician Robert Görl.
“The Gun” was a 1987 single written by Gabi Delgado and released in a range of different mixes, firstly in a standard 8:19 remix in Europe (also known as the “Bang!Bang! Club Mix” in the US , then the US released Joseph Watt 8:22 Powder-Keg remix backed with a Razormaid remix of “The First Step To Heaven”.
Finally, the Limited D.J. Edition was released in Germany, containing the 9:30 Ultimate House Mix.
“The Gun” would be the only D.A.F. single released in 1987 and would see CD release on the 1989 D.A.F. compilation “Hitz Blitz” which was a primarily a repackaging of the “1st Step To Heaven” LP for the US market with some remixes and altered tracklisting. The version that appeared on “Hitz Blitz” was the Joseph Watt “Powder Keg Mix”.
