Stop gun violence dubs from Seekersinternational

The Guncontrolla claims it is “the gun tune to end all gun tune”

A new release from Seekersinternational features fields recording from a workshop on field-stripping, the process of disassembly and reassembly a gun for the purpose of cleaning. The recordings were made during a demonstration by a Cold War veteran at a military surplus shop and features a Colt British Service Pistol, a Glock 34 Competition Pistol, a Kalashnikov 1967 Soviet Rifle and a Springfield M1 Garand Rifle.

The album is made as a pacifist dub statement making it clear its aim is not to romanticise gun use. Crucially not a single shot is fired on the record.

The Guncontrolla is released by ICS Library Records.
