The problem in the world today is everyone walking around with his or her knickers in a twist man. They need to build a bridge and climb over the Feckin Thing! For the love of man, reach over; Rid your neighbors of their Atomic Wedgies before the Feckin Heads Explode. –Frank Cokayne
In 2011-2012 Under The Gun received three (3) prestigious awards for their selfless and tireless social responsibility efforts to make the world a better place for all to live in peace, harmony with a clean environment.
The band received PETA’s International Wildlife Guardian Award for their seamless and highly effective awareness campaign to save The Old Speckled Hen while simultaneously winning The British Culinary Federation Award for presentation innovation by serving Southern Fried Old Speckled Hen and promoting Wildlife Awareness Campaigns at pubs, music venues and social events across the UK.
The greatest recognition for Under The Gun to date came at the September 2011 United Nations General Assembly Meeting in New York City where the band received the International Arbor Community Award presented to the band by Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon . Under The Gun was met with thunderous applause from the entire general assembly as they rose to their feet when the band approached the podium to accept the most prestigious environmental award given by the international community.
Under The Gun earned the award for saving trees from destruction by reusing Oak Whiskey Casks, taking them directly to the distilleries for refills, at the same time not adding non-biodegradable glass to landfills or burning fossil fuels to make new bottles. The United Nations has adopted this program for use in international development and sustainability programmes for its member nations.
