Deborah Ann's Got A Tiger In Her Hips

The Gun Club's first album, Fire Of Love, is a Bagging Area favourite, best played loud. Its best known song is Sex Beat, a prowling four chord romp. Their punk driven country/rockabilly formed a substantial part of The White Stripe's make up, amongst others. On Two Lone Swordsmen's Double Gone Chapel album Weatherall and Tenniswood turned in a fine cover version having added  guitars and singing to their electronics. The single version came with a remix of Sex Beat that flipped back to the low key electronics of earlier TLS.

As a bonus here's The Gun Club playing Sex Beat at The Hacienda in 1983...

And a fan made video featuring Wild At Heart and a whole load of Hollywood dancers...
