Live Video: Glue Gun covers Dead Kennedys’ “Holiday in Cambodia”

During their performance at Nardcore Turkey Bowl Main Event in Ventura, California last weekend (November 23rd), Glue Gun performed a cover version of the Dead Kennedys classic “Holiday in Cambodia”. You can check it out below.

Glue Gun reunited in 2011 to celebrate their 20th anniversary, and have since been playing live shows sporadically. The band’s last album, The Scene Is Not for Sale, was released in 1995.

Random Cover Song: Glue Gun – “Gas Chamber” (Angry Samoans)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Tonight, we’ve got Glue Gun, who had reunited two years ago, covering the Angry Samoans classic “Gas Chamber”. The song was originally released on the Angry Samoans’ classic 1982 album Back from Samoa, while Glue Gun’s cover version of it is taken from the 1996 Fearless Records compilation album Punk Bites. Both versions of “Gas Chamber” can be checked out here.

Two fan-made Glue Gun videos posted online

Two fan-made videos of Glue Gun‘s songs have surfaced online on YouTube. The songs are “The Scene Is Not for Sale” and “Drug Life” (both from their most recent studio album, The Scene Is Not for Sale), and you can click here to watch them.

Granted this isn’t really news in any sense, as The Scene Is Not for Sale came out back in 1995, but as far as I know, Glue Gun have never released an “official” music video in their career and the fan-made versions of “Drug Life” and the title track are very awesome, especially pictures of what represent the songs.

Back in February, Glue Gun announced that they would be reuniting to celebrate their 20th anniversary. They were also planning to record new material for an anthology that was supposed to be out this fall, but we still haven’t heard any updates or an official release date. When we have more info we’ll let you know.

Glue Gun reuniting, recording new material

Here’s something that may bring back memories… Familiar with Glue Gun? If you were listening to punk music in the 90’s golden era then you sure are. They originally started in L.A. in 1991 under the name Glü Gun by The Grim frontman Bob Oedy, opened for bands like NOFX, The Offspring and The Vandals and earned a growing fan base with their only two albums Just Glü It (1994) and The Scene Is Not for Sale (1995). They were also one of the first bands to sign to Fearless Records, which released the latter album. After their split in 1997 and a short lived reunion featuring some former members of Jughead’s Revenge, Glue Gun has announced that they are back together again and will celebrate their 20th anniversary. This reformation will feature The Scene Is Not for Sale line-up, consisting of Bob Oedy (vocals), Jeff Roberts (guitar), George Snow (also on guitar), John North (bass) and Jody Kern (drums). The band will also be heading into the studio to record new material for an anthology due out this fall. Head on over to their website for all the updates about the band.
