Version 1

GunnBunny were formed in 2002, in the small oxfordshire town of Eynsham. Arriving on the same scene as local heroes Winnebago Deal, the band originally comprised Jack Goldstein (Lead vocals, guitar), Paul ‘Mo’ Morrill (Bass, vocals), and Rich Partlett (drums). Like Winnebago Deal, they specialised in noisy, three chord thrash; heavily influenced by US acts such as Black flag, Nebula and Fu Manchu, as well as grunge acts such as MudHoney and Local H. Incessant gigging led them to acquire a small yet devoted fanbase, and critical acclaim; oxford music magazine NightShift citing them as one of twenty acts of 2003 most likely to make it. That same year, they released their first E.P, Duel, on Escobar Records. A four track, ten minute assault on the ears, it showed them up as being well beyond their years in terms of musical competence; songs like ‘2000 Maniacs” and “Purius” wouldn’t have sounded out of place on many of their heroes’ albums. After a few more low key releases, Paul left the band to pursue an academic career. Rich also left, for a short while, being replaced by talented local drummer Cameron for the “hanging out with the cool kids” compilation of 2005, which also featured local acts such as DeGuello and Holiday Stabbings. Shortly after this release, Rich returned, and the band soldiered on as a two piece until 2007, when they were joined by bass player Mike Thompson, a member of local band Cobra. With more gigs lined up for the future, and a possible record release for Jack’s other band The Dresdens, it seems the future looks bright for GunnBunny, their music becoming more refined and polished with each passing year.
