Gurt - Redwin EP

Posted by Captain Beyond Zen on Monday, June 13, 2011

GURT take the blues and groove of 70s rock and drag it backwards through the swamps of Louisiana. The drums are thunderous, the vocals demonic and the guitars down-tuned, down-tempo and down-right sexy. This is not doom, this is not sludge, THIS IS GURT.

GURT have been responsible for sore necks in and around London since 2010 and take no more pleasure than in hearing new fans claim that they ‘don’t usually like metal’ at the end of a gig. Some say their wide appeal is no surprise considering the diverse mix of influences and experiences they pull together from previous bands.

GURT’s first EP (limited release late 2010) received positive reviews both in the UK and overseas and was featured as the opening track on Thee Big Black Volume 2 compilation. Having just finished recording their second EP, GURT are currently arranging distribution and a nationwide tour to promote its release in summer 2011.

GURT can regularly be found supporting the local music scene and bring together some of the finest underground talent at their ‘When Planets Collide’ club nights.

GURT are currently seeking a record label to release the EP 'Redwin' recorded March 2011.
