The Gun and Doll Show / Bio

The Gun & Doll Show celebrates the online release of their newest album, American Radio Two. It is the much anticipated sequel to the band’s last effort, American Radio One, voted one of the top 50 records of 2004 by SF Weekly. The album is a versatile and imaginative auditory trip across the radio dial, representing all brands of American music, done Gun & Doll Show style. This is post-modern pop with Killian MacGeraghty’s provocative and risk-taking songwriting style at the center. MacGeraghty is the writer, lead singer, mastermind and ringleader of what he calls "The Gun & Doll Show Cirque du Chevrolet." He has been called a “boulevard surrealist who actually rocks,” and he tackles a wide range of material on American Radio Two including the first female quarterback in the NFL (Can You Feel It), a rock star who should have chosen a different profession (Cowboy Lingerie Store), and the truth about self-righteous punk rockers (What I Hate About Punks). Further down the dial are requiems to bad relationships (Honest Girl & I'm Not Bitter), cloned celebrity babies (First Born), as well as terms of endearment (Jungle Ho). The Gun & Doll Show’s sound is nothing if not eclectic. It’s been compared to XTC, Garbage, Frank Zappa meets Todd Rundgren, The Tubes, The Breeders, even Hedwig & The Angry Inch. With American Radio Two, MacGeraghty and his band of rockers remind us why the SF Examiner dubbed The Gun & Doll Show "San Francisco's best and most ingenious rock band."
