How good is your Boolean logic, your ability to identify which statements are true and which are as false as the front end of Pamela Anderson? Run this quick test through the working part of your brain:
There are many excellent psychedelic rock and metal bands today. There are many great space rock and comparatively few superb space metal bands. Stoner rock and metal are the chosen genres of numerous good modern bands. Many fine bands play sludge metal. Therefore Gringo plays all of those musical styles, plus a few more.
Good, you ticked them all “correct”. You can also tick this one: Gringo does it darned well, too.
Here’s how the band describes itself: “The twisted end result of a combination of influences ranging from Iommi to Einstein, hangovers to horsepower, space cadets to space exploration; unhindered by genre clichés while remaining true to the heritage of Midlands heaviness.” Hey, Gringo, I was going to say that. Well, some of it, sort of. It’s a very good summation.
