GRINGO - Gringo (MCA MAPS 4890) Germany 1971 LP
vinyl: NM (mint-) | cover: VG++ (excellent)
Founded in Somerset, UK in 1971 - Disbanded in 1972
"Like many other short-lived prog-rock bands of the early 70's, Gringo's transmutation from the late 60's pop outfit, The Toast, heralded the birth of a new, exciting musical era whilst, at the same time, casting off for good, the shackles of their pseudo-psychedelic existence.
Formed in 1968 as a three-piece, The Toast embarked upon a busy schedule of gigs culminating in the group recording eight songs for BBC 2's "Colour Me Pop" show which was televised in January 1969.
