The SlowGuns journey took them from the backstreets of Stockport and back again in two short, yet eventful years. A strong local following followed them everywhere, often against their better judgement. In 1979 the band recorded and released their now collectible first single ‘TV Movie’ b/w ‘American Heartbeat’. The single received lots of airplay, including Radio 1 (John Peel) and had high praise in the national music press. The band played many gigs, accompanied on backing vocals by ‘The Bullettes’, two young ladies who answered an ad placed by the band in the NME.
