"After over a decade of performing as both a drummer and guitar player in such Winnipeg bands as The Quiffs, The High Thunderers, The Blowholes, and most recently, The Angry Dragons, performing solo has given Alana Mercer a whole new direction in which to tear her favourite music apart and make it her own.The Gunness is a solo performance by Alana that was inspired by nightly "quiet" practices in her apartment with an unplugged electric and her foot hitting a kick pedal to a suitcase as a way to keep a muted beat. What she was writing, however, was anything but quiet. The nature of her music, both original and covered, combined with the nature of how she performs, which is notorious for its minimalism and vicious passion, is something to be seen to be believed. Look for a recording in Summer 2012!"
