One of a handful of bands to genuinely push the punk/post-punk template, The Gun Club was fronted by legendary vocalist Jeffrey Lee Pierce and included such luminaries as Kid Congo Powers, Patricia Morrison, Romi Mori and Terry Graham in their fluid line up.

Producing seriously muscular albums like Miami and The Fire of Love, and classic tunes such as Sex Beat and She's Like Heroin To Me, Ghost on the Highway recounts both Pierce's story and the band's 17 year history.

Interviewees include fellow Gun Club members, friends, and admirers such as Henry Rollins and Lemmy from Motörhead.

Australian premiere. Special thanks to Kid Congo Powers.
