Trekking from Tucsonto Monterey, Long Live the Smoking Gun carries its diverse (grunge/punk/hardcore and even country-core) energy to Jose's basement lair. Unexpected yrics like “Buy me a new dress and I will dance for you,” pop up to match the band's visual style (Converse high-tops and ratty t-shirts). Moshing is okay as long it's in the spirit of the band’s affirmative mission statement: “spread love and respect.” Long live their eclectic musical template, freshness and creative vigor. [SK]
