Guns n’ Wankers was a punk rock band, formed by ex-members of British punk band Snuff, and rock band The Wildhearts in the early 1990s. The band consisted of Duncan Redmonds (Vocals, guitar), Patrice Walters (Drums, vocals) and Joolz Dean (Bass guitar, vocals). The three formed the band on the same day Snuff played their farewell gig (now reformed) at the Kilburn National and Walters was released of duty with The Wildhearts. On the off chance, Duncan gave Walters a call after seeing him play in a band called The Milk Monitors a few years before. In turn, Walters called his old mate Joolz Dean and the line-up was complete. Originally the band were to be called Cunts n’ Wankers but they thought better of it.

After touring up and down the United Kingdom with the likes of Leatherface, NOFX and Watt Tyler, the band set about recording demos. This coincided with a tour of the Basque region in Spain, where copies of the demos sold like hot cakes. On their return, Sean of Watt Tyler and the man behind Rugger Bugger Records put up the modest money to record a Guns n’ Wankers album, which was recorded and produced by Andy Davies in Hitchin, Herts UK. The recordings were originally released on Rugger Bugger Records as three 7” EPs: Hardcore, Pop, and Metal (A Silly EP was free with an issue of Fear & Loathing ‘zine in very limited numbers). However, when NOFX’s Fat Mike showed an interest in releasing the album on legendary US punk label Fat Wreck Chords, he dispensed with all the material from Metal and one from Hardcore. The remainder was released as an eight track album called For Dancing And Listening on Fat Wreck Chords. The album was well received and continues to be highly regarded by the Punk fraternity. Unfortunately, soon after the band split due to the reformation of Snuff. Pat Walters went on to play with singer-songwriter Marc Carroll in a band called The Hormones and Joolz formed punk band Dogpiss. However, some Guns n’ Wankers recordings remain un-released and plans are in the offing to correct this.
