SCOTTISH rockers Gun have recalled “a lot of friction in the studio” with INXS keyboardist Andew Farriss during the making of their poorly-received 1997 album, 0141 632 6326.
Farris was brought on as producer for the album and guitarist Jools Gizzi tells the White Line Fever podcast: “Whatever songs we had, Andrew just came and disected them.
“The demos were really up there. We just wanted him to add to the demos but he just went a complete left-field with it and then it caused a lot of friction in the studio – with myself especially.
But Gizzi insists there are no bad feelings towards the 59-year-old. “It’s in the past,” he said.
“It’s a learning curve, it’s something we’ll always remember that didn’t really work out.
“I respect Andrew Farriss as a songwriter. I think he’s written some of the biggest hits in the world, I think he was in one of the most famous bands ever to come out of Australia.
“He’s amazing and when we first worked with Andrew, it was all to do with the production. Let’s see how it was, let’s go and try a few tracks.
“We wanted to make a heavier version of INXS’s Kick album or INXS’s Listen Like Thieves album. They’re our favourite two INXS albums.
“But for some reason, it just didn’t happen.
“I love his work. It just didn’t happen with Gun.”
Gun’s current album is 2017’s Favourite Pleasures; INXS disbanded in 2012 and the surviving members reported to be working on a musical.
