It has been a crazy few months here at Gringo HQ. Our friend Tom met the man who saved Ipswich from relegation (Big Mick) and the Hookworms album is on its third pressing. Our non-day job hours have been spent furiously packing orders and lugging them down to the local post office. Thanks loads to everyone who has been enjoying and bought the album!
It would be amazing if the popularity of the Hookworms record opened up new ears to Gringo sounds. We've been doing this lark for 16 years and the we're more excited than ever about the sounds and smells emanating from the UK's DIY scene.
Without further ado, we have two new releases out now! The GREY HAIRS 7" was our first dabble in Record Store Day but can now be ordered direct from us. Grey Hairs is various members of Lords, Kogumaza, Fists, Cult of Dom Keller and Fonda 500 channelling the spirit of classic grunge and 80s SST. It is a terrific record on a glorious slab of pink vinyl.
Gringo has joined forces with Faux Discx once again to bring you the marvellous album by VISION FORTUNE. Drone / repeato goodness, they remind me of Blonde Redhead or Lungfish or The Unit Ama. You know, the good stuff. We only pressed 300 copies and they are going fast!
The next releases come thick and fast, FISTS debut album on July 8th, THAT FUCKING TANK's live album ready for their 10th birthday bash two days prior in Leeds and then the long awaited BROKEN ARM LP.
Gringo are extremely proud to announce that we're releasing the debut Hookworms album on 4th March! "Pearl Mystic" will be available on 180g vinyl and CD. You can pre-order a copy from the GRINGO RECORDS SHOP now! We'll ship the pre-orders a week before the shop release date.
Have a listen to "In Our Time" over at Soundcloud....
Hoorah! The debut album by Cold Pumas - Persistent Malaise - is available in all good record stores and the GRINGO RECORDS SHOP now!
