Jon Caspi & The First Gun recording with Pete Steinkopf of the Bouncing Souls
Jon Caspi has been a longstanding figure on national college radio, fronting a number of bands including the punk outfit Boss Gremlin. His solo work in recent years has been more American rock, but his work with The First Gun has been a return to his punk-indie roots. "Pete has been a great help in putting the punk back into my tunes," says Jon, "He is great to work with and I am really excited about how this album is coming out." Pete adds, "I am really stoked about these recordings!" "I have been a longtime fan of the Souls and so working with him has been a huge personal thrill," says Jon.
They are recording 10 songs and the album is expected in late summer 2011.
