about

Todd start off proceedings with a total kill of noise, spizzle and grit breaks your brain, Part Chimp follow up with a Sabbath inspired act of joy/pain, Lords come in with a ZZ Beefheart mover and shaker, Hey Colossus bring up the rear with a waltz time skulldozer.

As all 4 band 10”s should be, this is a love in involving 4 like minded bands and labels, a celebration what’s going on.

Todd’s album came out on Southern to 5K Kerrang reviews and hearty plaudits all over “a filthy amalgamation of the dirty guitar work of Melvins and Floor, but this is 10 times dirtier and ran through a psych-rock filter” (Stonerrock), live they are relentless, you want to love and hate them. Part Chimp’s album, out on Rock Action, was voted as having one of the worst sleeves ever on Pitchfork, the Observer said: “the innard-quaking sensations they induce feel good” and that is the truth, even The Sun agreed. The Lords’ album “This Ain’t A Hate Thing, It’s A Love Thing” is out in April on Gringo Records, featuring ex Wolves! (Of Greece) chaps, and fighting naming rights war with a U.S Lords, they cruise at you with the style of Prince wearing a Sabbath t-shirt and Sun Ra orchestrating. They are one of the best bands in the country. Hey Colossus had their second album out recently on Jonson Family, The Wire liked it: “they come close to touching simultaneous blisspoints of Neu!'s motorik momentum and Bardo Pond's fathomless well of distortion”, they did a R1 session for Huw Stephens and have too many guitarists.

about

Gringo Records Nottingham

GRINGO is a record label based in Nottingham, approaching 20 years of age, still hopped up on DIY and in too deep to stop. It is too late at night for me to try and explain what the concept of DIY means to me, but catch me after too many pale ales and I’ll go off on one. Of course, at the heart of all good music is LOVE. If you believe in love, please invest some of your hard-earned in our music. ... more
