about

Hookworms’ debut release on 12” vinyl features 4 songs and clocks in at around 27 minutes. Sun Ark (who initially issued the release on tape) said this about it:

“Hookworms fling themselves headlong into classic 80’s/90’s psych-rock like they’re trying to break something. Hailing from Leeds and cramming themselves giddily within the well established formal properties of the genre, they walk the scorched road behind Loop, Spectrum, and any other titan of two-chord songs who’s ever slowly wah-ed a chord until they saw colors. Most excellent burners!”

Which pretty much nails it.

The first vinyl pressing was released jointly by Gringo and Faux Discx and sold out within a few months. The third pressing is now available (posting out 7th Nov 2014) and features three bonus tracks with the digital download: The Correspondent' (originally on Psych For Sore Eyes 7"), 'Form & Function' (Kogumaza split version) and rarity 'Deu'. We will be doing a CD version in early 2015!

1st pressing - 500 copies on heavyweight vinyl in a beautiful reverse-board sleeve featuring artwork by guitarist Jonny Wilkinson.
2nd pressing - 1000 copies, as above, but with three bonus tracks which only come with the vinyl.
3rd pressing - 1000 copies, as above, but with three bonus tracks which only come with the vinyl.

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
