The Gordons

Bio

They came, they saw, they deafened.

The Gordons created good, old-fashioned inner torment that has rarely been communicated so effectively ever since. They were formed in Christchurch back in 1980 and released their first album way back in 1981 on the band's own label.

"When they played at the same size venue as Motorhead they required four extra PA sound systems. Saying The Gordons were LOUD is like saying the Beatles were a POP GROUP - not so much detonating as devastating!" Everett True, Melody Maker

"The Gordons drop every hint that they know a pop song or two, but refuse to play one...This is a juggernaut of a record. When you put it on not only will your lawn die, your Motorhead albums will shrivel in their sleeves, leaving only a sticky black gel smelling faintly of vodka. (8/10)" David Swift, NME

"If Flying Nun ever release this on CD, you'll probably need to get council permission to play it." Rip It Up
