Bilge Pump have a disturbing ability to be better than any band they play with. Imagine a boiling-over bastard concoction of all the best bits of The Jesus Lizard, Led Zeppelin, The Fall, Blue Cheer, Funkadelic and King Crimson. A thick broth of art-punk fractured progressive noise, condensed into atonal pop songs free of power chords. Nitro-fuelled avant-jazz rhythms create enough structural form amongst the twisted guitar and off-the-cuff witticisms to provide an uncanny ability to incite dancing! It doesn't matter how wired or weird Bilge Pump get; behind the progressive noise there are clear, distinctive, memorable songs: a rare and winning combination!

During their 14 year existence, Bilge Pump have probably played with, dismayed and blown away all your favourite bands (take your pick from Lightning Bolt, Erase Errata, Part Chimp, Trans Am, The Mars Volta, Hella, Foals, Get Hustle, Les Savy Fav, Enon). They recorded several John Peel Sessions (in which Peel is chomping at the bit for more - only very rarely did I hear him quite so enthusiastic). Joe makes custom valve amps for the likes of The Fucking Champs. Brian Chippendale from Lightning Bolt admitted he's a one-trick-drum-pony compared to Bilge’s Neil Turpin in a Pitchfork interview after they played together in 2006. A finer set of indie credentials would be harder to find, as would a band who so evidently don’t give a fuck about them. And frankly, not liking a band with song titles like “Are You There, Jude? It’s Me, Barry” would seem rather churlish.

Every now and then you stumble across a band where it’s impossible to tell, in a traditional sense, whether they’re any good or not. All you can tell is that that they’re weird enough to be absolutely wonderful. // Kerrang

Every frequency, every drum beat, every riff and every vocal is so tight, caustic, well-tuned, and so addictive, they seem to transcend their human form. // Plan B

When they pull another fine riff out of thin air you realise how inspired this trio really are. // Rock-a-Rolla

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.
