Merger proposal (withdrawn)[edit]

(Original proposal removed by author.) OlenWhitaker (talk) 18:07, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

After a more in-depth look at the band(s) in question, and in light of the consensus that appears to be forming, I am prepared to concede the point that the subject may well be better treated by leaving the two pages as they are. I have, therefore, withdrawn my proposal for merger and removed the merge tags from the pages in question. OlenWhitaker (talk) 15:06, 8 March 2008 (UTC)



In Answer[edit]

I think you will find that Blind Allez are to be considered a seperate entity to GUN in that, Blind Allez did, indeed, change the name of the band, before Gun existed, to "Phobia" and went on to sign a recording contract after which, the band lost members and had certain line-up changes leaving the main song writing members Gizzi, Gizzi and Rankin to form the basis of the band, which was then known as GUN. So, in effect, the Blind Allez/Phobia years were a seperate phase and should ultimately be treated as an act in their own right. Although a couple of the songs originated from the previous incarnation of Phobia and were roughly used by Gun, the main tracks known as Gun songs were written by Gizzi, Gizzi and Rankin during the Gun years and have nothing to do with Blind allez or Phobia. The two were indeed seperate bands and both deserve their own pages, Gun for their achievements in the recording industry and Blind Allez for their contribution to that process. If you notice in the article, Gun were formed in 1987, after Blind Allez/Phobia had split. Also consider that the two bands have both played recently and have nothing to do with each other. gun have recently played a charity gig for Nordorff Robbins with possible plans to play further shows and Blind Allez have been performing live again for almost two years, both in their own right.

seconded[edit]

I have to agree with Alan above. Both bands have been playing gigs lately, in their own right, so I think both articles should remain as separate entities. Blind allez may be heading into the studio to re-record some of their tracks and work on some new material. There is also the possibility that GUN may be playing some more shows, as mentioned above, so I think they can be considered as two seperate bands.

Word up?[edit]

I dont think this sentence "most well known for their cover of Word Up!, originally by Cameo." really represents the band. I think they are better known for the album "Gallus", wich was very popular at the time, than for that song. Sounds to me like saying "Guns n' Roses are a band most well konw fot their cover of "Sympathy for the devil", originally by The Rolling Stones". Yes, "Sympathy for the devil" was a hit single, maybe sold more copies than "Welcome to the jungle", but is not a reference wich represents the band. Same with this. If i think of Gun, the first thing that comes to my mind would be the album "Gallus" (wich i think it'sn the most popular reference of the band) or the song "Taking on the world". I dont see the point about "word up" being mentioned on the introduction. Yes it was a hit single, and so what. Many people would hear it and doesnt know it's Gun, its not their most popular or remarkable recording. "Gallus", on the opposite, its often cited as a reference on 90's music history. "Word up" is not.--Barfly2001 (talk) 18:17, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Gun or GUN?[edit]

Is it either, or both? Somebody will probably tell me it's neither!--ML5 (talk) 11:36, 12 April 2010 (UTC)
