Recorded around the time when ex Creation members Kenny Pickett and Eddie Philips contributed the great Teacher Teacher on Rockpile's Seconds Of Pleasure LP. It seems that this promo only release was the only other opportunity they got on Fbeat. Kenny wrote the lyrics, Eddie wrapped the tune around the words and the results recall Brotherly Love’s Public Enemy No 1 with a bit of the chorus of Sweet’s Alexander Graham Bell thrown in. The sound is part Glam, part Powerpop and part late 70s Squeeze. It’s just a shame that Kenny and Eddie weren’t able to exploit the semi-success of Teacher Teacher with more tunes like this one as Got A Gun proves they had more to offer in a Powerpop Glam crossover mode.
