Gardenia Doom Metal / Co. Tyrone

Tom Clarke (BAD BOAT, HOWLIN’ WIDOW) recommended this band to me a while back. And as luck would have it I managed to grab and original copy of their S/T demo through a trade with a lad from up North. Five tracks of quality Stoner Rock. Check them out on the bandcamp player below. The band were from Dungannon and only released this one demo. I’ve been told it was recorded sometime between 1995 and 1997, but I can’t be sure. They began the process of writing and recording for their debut album, but internal tensions and friction led to the band splitting before they could finish.

Thanks a million to Justin Meechan for getting in touch about this demo and giving nod of approval for having the demo posted on here for all to listen to again. You can check out his current mellow spacerock musical endeavors over on his JAZZ MUMBLES soundcloud page.
