The Gun were an acid rock band formed in 1967, in London, England. Consisting of guitarist Adrian Gurvitz, bassist Paul Gurvitz and drummer Louie Farrell, the band released two albums after being signed to CBS Records in early 1968. They scored a hit off their self titled album, with "Race with the Devil", issued as a single in October 1968. A fan of the song Jimi Hendrix performed it at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970, although no recordings appear to exist. Unfortunately they were unable to score any other hits, despite other singles such as "Drives You Mad". Their debut album is also noteworthy for the cover art, the first album art done by artist Roger Dean. Their second album, "Gunsight", was a flop producing no hits but included tracks such as, "Long Haired Wildman" and "Drown Yourself In the River". However the lack of schlagers led to the band's end leaving the Gurvitz brothers free to go to work with Ginger Baker the former drummer for Cream as, The Baker Gurvitz Army.
