Band line up
Blind Allez Kelvigrove 1985
Below, 21 years later....Rockers 2006

Blind Allez formed in the early 1980s by guitarist Jools Gizzi, singer Peter Scallan and bass player Cami Morlotti, they started rehearsing and writing while still looking for additional members to complete their line up, eventually Chris Bowes was brought in on guitar with Alan Thornton on drums.

The band started to play gigs for a while with this line up but for family commitment reasons Chris left and Ian Murray came in on guitar to complete the line up.
They played gigs all over central Scotland in places such as "The Venue" (Glasgow) "The Heathery bar" (Wishaw) "The Preservation Halls" (Edinburgh) and in May 1985 they secured a spot at the Kelvingrove Rock Festival playing along side the cream of the local rock scene such as Zero Zero, Abel Ganz, Glasgow and Lion Rampant.

Sadly this was the last time Blind Allez were to play together for 21 years as both Peter Scallan and Ian Murray moved on to other projects.
Ian went on to form the band "Five Past Midnight" and Peter joined "Chasar" before going on to work on a couple of projects with heavy rock monsters "Samson"

This was of course not the end of the band, they went on to recruit Mark Rankin and David Aitken, they changed their name to "Phobia" and continued to play live and write new material.
Eventually a management contract was secured in 1986 and they signed to A&M Records in 1987 under their new name "GUN"………The rest is history.

But now the boys are back, back to basics and planning to start gigging on a regular basis so watch this space!
