Gallus is the second album from Scottish rock band Gun.[1] Singles "Higher Ground", "Steal Your Fire", and "Welcome to the Real World" reached #48, #24, and #43 on the British charts, respectively. Gallus itself peaked at the #14 slot on the country's official albums chart.[2]

The release's cover shows Benny Lynch. A renowned Scottish boxer from Glasgow, he achieved international fame during his career and continued notoriety after his death in August 1946.

Production and recording[edit]

The album's release took place when the group was a quintet made up of vocalist Mark Rankin alongside guitarists Alex Dickson and Giuliano Gizzi, bassist Dante Gizzi, and drummer Scott Shields.[1]

Gallus was produced by Kenny MacDonald,[1] who had previously produced work by singer-songwriter Lloyd Cole and the band Texas.[3] Al Clay did the audio engineering on the album.[1] He had previously engineered releases by artists such as the American groups Pixies (on Bossanova) and Pere Ubu (on Worlds in Collision).[4]
