SGP is a rough rockband. The members are Gabry de W. (guitar/vocals), Stijn D. (bass, backing vocals) and JP den H. (drums). SGP began in 1996 after D. posted a note on the wall of Amsterdams famous Distortion Records in which he let the world know he was looking for a band. Den H. en De W. gave him a call and SGP was born. In 1997 Larz helped them to conceive a tape, followed by a 7″ on Narrominded in January 2001. These two songs were taken from SGP’s recording session at the Koeienverhuurbedrijf in Purmerend, The Netherlands. The Elite is about three friends who take a hooker with them from the city. They bring her to a treehouse.

And again a small and intrigueing label pops up in the Netherlands. This time it’s Narrominded from Hoofddorp, which releases music from Psychon Troopers and SGP, but also has Larz in its stable of artists. Psychon Troopers are much more modest than SGP.
SGP leans a bit too heavy on the noiseschool of for example a Big Black, Unsane and Cop Shoot Cop. Contrary guitarnoise with staccato riffs where they give their own turn to. SGP is far from maniacally strange like her examples but more melodic and capable in creating fine suspense. A negative note: too little information. A positive note: from both bands we will hear more in the future.
