Today we released the fourth single by Rig on our new digital platform.
A DDG band sitting comfortably on the outside looking in. As everything got very Madchester and Ravetastic in the area, they continued to produce excellent and timeless recordings out of the infamous Strawberry Recording Studios in Stockport.
Fellow contemporaries at the time would be bands that kind of fused the Acid House scene but empowered themselves with guitars and drums… Early Happy Mondays, New Fads, Paris Angels, and later outside of the Mancunian bubble came the likes of Flowered Up and The Twang would be on the same wavelength.
The final re-issue is ‘Moody’ (GOOD43) which was originally released as a 12″ White Label and was a cover version of the seminal New York Bronx Factory Records act ESG, a band that went on to be one of the most sampled bands on the Hip Hop scene.
‘Bighead’ (GOOD3) was the third release on the label following The Charlatans debut ‘Indian Rope’ (GOOD1), and Katherine E ‘I’m Alright’ (GOOD2), the huge Italian House anthem discovered by James Barton of Cream and Quadrant Park fame.
‘Spank’ followed (GOOD7), and we released the bands 1st single ‘Dig’ (GOOD42), last week.
We look-forward to delivering and sharing the recently discovered and now remastered debut album by Rig… details soon.
