Gallows: Gray Britain Gray & Red Splatter Vinyl on Warner Brothers

 I stumbled across Gallows when I was living in Cork, Ireland. My local bar; Fred Zeppelins had a bartender who would play this album, in full from time to time.  There is no question that they have that distinct British punk rock sound, but there is more to them than that.  They have a very sincere emotion in this album that is very captivating.  It's a grim listen, but very satisfying.  

This was pressed by Warner Bros Records, which is odd and the color variant was pretty hard to find.  One source says that it was limited to 150 copies, but I have not been able to find any definitive information on it. 

Very minimal artwork and gorgeous vinyl.

The end of Misery disturbs me.... check it out.  The album version of the track has the pig squealing for 15-20 seconds or so. 


  1. i was visiting a friend of mine in limerick years ago. we wanted to go to cork for a day but didn't do it. shame on us! but reminds me of good times in eire.

  2. If you do ever get to Cork, check out that bar.. it is a good time.
