Gunshot – 25 Gun Salute [1993]
October 20, 2009

Gunshot was a British hip hop group, formed by MC Mercury, MC Alkaline, Q-Roc, DJ White Child Rix and DJ/MC Barry Blue in the area of Leyton in East London.

The reception of Gunshot’s first singles by british hip hop fans and DJ’s was good and demand grew for an album. The group released Patriot Games, notable for the track “Mind Of A Razor,” which was subsequently released as a single and included a remix by the British extreme metal band, Napalm Death. Patriot Games reached number 60 in the UK Albums Chart in June 1993.

Arguably one of the biggest UK hip hop acts of the early nineties, standing shoulder to shoulder with the more prolific Hijack and the legendary Silver Bullet.
