  • History of Guns are an English cross-genre group combining elements of industrial, punk, big beat, electronica, goth, edm, rock and avant-garde from Hertfordshire, England. The current members are Del Alien, Max Rael and Jamu. Their name comes from the title of one of their earliest songs, written about the Dunblane massacre. Primarily a studio project, History of Guns played live sporadically throughout their career including the Whitby Gothic Weekend and both Futurepunk23 and Back To The Futurepunk. In 2007, their song Your Obedient Servants came in at no.19 in journalist Mick Mercer's list of Top 30 Goth Singles Of All Time. In April 2008, Line Out Records sponsored the Whitby Gothic Weekend bi-annual football tournament so teams were competing for, 'The History of Guns - Acedia Challenge Cup'. Their third album ACEDIA was released on 7 July 2008 on Line Out Records and was awarded 9/10 by Rock Sound on 3 July 2008. A reaction against the relentless miserablism of Acedia, History Of Guns followed it up with The Spice Girls EP in April 2009. A light-hearted, three-song investigation into The Spice Girls, including the track "Slice Up Your Wife". Their latest release was Whatever You Do, Don't Turn Up At Twelve, released on Zero State Media / Line Out Records on 21 October 2011. In August 2015 they were featured in the Beautiful Noise exhibition at Hertford Museum of notable bands from the area. (en)
