Formed in 1989 from the ashes of The Untouchables, this London three piece sought a return to the powerful guitar based rock'n'roll that inspired them to first pick up their instruments in the late seventies. Influenced by The Jam, The Ruts, Ramones and of course the Pistols the Guitar Gangsters produced a debut album of melodic power punk gems that made "Prohibition" a sort after release. This, together with tracks on Link Records' "Underground Rockers" compilation album (Manic Street Preachers, Senseless Things and Mega City Four were also featured) brought the band to the attention of Stiff Little Fingers who invited the Gangsters as guests on the Fingers' comeback UK tour.

- LyricsNo more fighting. No more war.
So, what the hell are you marching for?
No more copy of Vietcong.
But still you wanna sing your protest song.
No, no, no, no, you've nothing to shout about.
- LyricsThe girl's in love and the world's a better place.
The girl's in love, you can see it in her face.
She wants just to see him. Has no time for her friends.
She says she's happy, but what happens when it ends?
That's when the razor cuts.
- LyricsEverybody wants to be my friend.
Taking money I'll never lend.
Everybody keeps on comin' 'round.
My new friends springin' right outta the ground.
Everybody wants to wear my clothes.
- LyricsWell I spent too long with a boot on the back of my neck.
Got nothing to lose, except to lose my self-respect.
I've gotta come out fighting, words don't stand my ground.
I've gotta come out fighting, and turn the tables around.
I'm gonna turn the tables on you tonight.
