Esoteric Recordings are pleased to announce a newly remastered edition of the legendary debut album by GNIDROLOG, "In Spite of Harry’s Toenail”. The band was originally formed in 1969 and recorded their first album for RCA Records in November 1971. Featuring a line up of COLIN GOLDRING (lead vocals, guitars, recorder, tenor sax, horn, harmonica), STEWART GOLDRING (lead guitar, vocals), PETER "MARS” COWLING (bass, cello) and NIGEL PEGRUM (percussion, flute, oboe, piano), GNIDROLOG’s debut was a mixture of Progressive styles which saw the band compared by critics to cohorts such as GENTLE GIANT and VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR. Although failing to sell in huge quantities, GNIDROLOG’s status has grown over the years with their original vinyl albums reaching huge sums among collectors. This Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly remastered from the original master tapes and features a  previously unreleased bonus track, a booklet that fully restores all original album artwork with a new essay.

Press:-


"the debut album In Spite Of Harry's Toenail blends the more rustic Canterbury tones, the stark invention of Van Der Graaf Generator and a dash of Zappa".
