The Kane Gang – Gun Law (1985)

Kane Gang were a Blues rock trio from North East England that had a few UK hits and two U.S. hits in the 1980s. Named after the movie, Citizen Kane, the trio recorded for the indie record label, Kitchenware, that was also home to Prefab Sprout.

Vocalists Martin Brammer (born 13 May 1957, Seaham, County Durham) and Paul Woods, plus multi-instrumentalist Dave Brewis formed the trio in 1982, after meeting in small local bands, and signed to a small record label, which led to a deal with London Records in 1984.

Their debut album, Bad and Lowdown World of the Kane Gang (released in the United States as Lowdown), was released the next year, and spawned two United Kingdom hit singles.

The last single to be released from Bad and Lowdown World of the Kane Gang was “Gun Law”, the track went to #53 on the UK charts.

“Gun Law” was remixed by Joseph Watt for the US 12″ single release.

  1. Love this song, own both of the albums on vinyl, and managed to find them online later. Both albums are brilliant and a great listen. Also they are a local band to me in the NE of England so that makes it all the better, should have been around longer.

  2. Thanks EV for more Kane Gang. I’m a fan too, and especially love Closest Thing To Heaven and What Time Is It. They do blue-eyed soul so well!
