Bad Stuff is this:
Good Person is this:
No idea what on earth caused this to my 1983 shaped picture disc of AC/DC Guns For Hire (bought in 1990 for £15). It’s never been exposed to water, or any other moisture. It’s always been kept upright in a plastic sleeve. It’s never happened to any other of my picture discs at all. So I really cannot understand why the red ink has run like this. I can only assume that at some point over the last 23 years I have inadvertently angered U-see-thru jealous God of the SPDs. maybe I didn’t make the required ritual sacrifices in his name, mayhaps it was when I sold two latter-day Marillion ones when I was stony broke in 1991. Who knows, U-see-thru’s vengeance is complete.
Yes, I know it’s still perfectly playable – I’ve just done it twice, but it’s not the point. Instead of a perfectly formed AC/DC logo I have a splodged red mess.
The music? I rate the parent album, Flick of The Switch as near-enough my favourite Brian Johnson AC/DC LP and ‘Guns For Hire’ is as close to commercial as the LP gets, chock-full of Brian Johnson’s trademark, umm, single entendre,
I’m a smooth operator
A big dictator
Gonna mark you with my brand
My gun’s for hire
Shoot you with desire
I think of it as one of the weaker LP tracks. The B-side ‘Landslide’ is much better in my book, almost thrash-fast tale of badness and derring-do, wrapped up with a stonking Angus Young guitar solo to boot. It is a much more representative track.
Only this was never about the music… Curse you! U-see-thru !!
P.S – What it should look like:
