Welcome to The Calton. The Calton District in Glasgow’s East End has always been home to Jools and Dante from GUN.

In their parents’ spare bedroom just a stone’s throw from Glasgow’s famous Barrowland Ballroom, the boys fashioned their songwriting skills alongside former GUN lead singer Mark Rankin.

The Calton Songs is a fourteen-track celebration of GUN’s classic hits and favourites – semi-acoustic versions of what appeared through the years as full-on rock tracks. This double LP edition is available on red vinyl to celebrate the band’s new partnership with Cherry Red Records. It is also available on CD, cassette and digital formats.

The songs feature all the current band’s line-up plus some amazing backing singing from Beverley Skeete and The Sisterhood, giving a gospel slant and an original spin to these rock classics.

Barring Word Up, the other thirteen songs were inspired by the sights and sounds of The Calton.
Recorded initially by Dante in the spare bedroom, the songs were completed after the lockdown situation ended in January 2022 in Glasgow’s Morsecode studios.

GUN will be touring this fantastic album with the full band and doing some acoustic shows in the months ahead.
