Question of the Day: Guns in Song

by Corny O'Connell

The 'FUV #NewDig that we're delving into this week in the debut from Trigger Hippy. That triggers WFUV's Question of the Day: What are your favorite songs that mention guns? There are a lot great songs that speak of guns, both literally and metaphorically. Let us know what you want to hear in the comments below and we'll load up a set after 9am.

If you want to have an argument about guns, there are plenty of other websites where you can do that. 

Here's what we played:

Fink - FUV Live - 2014

by Carmel Holt

This UK-based band is led by former trip-hop DJ and now singer-songwriter Fin Greenall. He has been putting out music for more than a decade under the name Fink with the help from drummer Tim Thornton and bassist Guy Whittaker. The band recently released its fifth album, Hard Believer, and it's stacked with shimmering vocals, folk guitars and hypnotic rhythms. Fink recently stopped by Studio A to play and talk about the new songs. We’ll hear that conversation and performance during this episode of FUV Live.

Catie Curtis - Sunday Breakfast - 2014

by John Platt
Jeremy Rainer

The last couple of years have been a period of personal change for Catie Curtis, the openhearted singer-songwriter from Boston. She returned to the Sunday Breakfast to talk candidly about those changes and perform songs of pain and songs of hope from her latest album, Flying  Dream.

The Raveonettes - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

Earlier this year, the Danish duo The Raveonettes released its seventh full-length album, Pe'ahi. The album is named after a legendary surf break on the island of Maui, and there is even a track on the new record that recounts a true story about a near-death experience that Sune Rose Wagner had while surfing in Hawaii several years ago. In typical Raveonettes fashion, the songs on the new album deal with dark subject matter, but this time the songs hit even closer to home for Wagner, as he was dealing with the death of his father during the making of the record. Like many people, music helped him deal with this situation and he and his partner, Sharin Foo, ended up making a brilliant record that is a huge sonic leap forward for the band. During a recent Studio A visit, they performed a couple of their older songs for us, which you can watch here.
