The Ace with the Bass

This week has been spent revisiting music from my early teens: some good and some that should never see the light of day again. One track that i had on constant rotation was 'Ray Gun' (above) much to the annoyance of the parental unit ("Turn it DOWN!").

'Ray Gun' came from Thin Lizzy's debut eponymous album which was released in 1971. Lynott's raspy vocals and funky bass lines sounded unlike any Irish music I'd heard previously. It was the music coupled with Lynott's bad boy image that set my hormones alight and made me an instant convert.
