North Wales/Liverpool/Manchester seven-piece Gintis formed in 2002 as 16-year-olds, having heard Grandaddy’s The Crystal Lake at a house party. Keyboards were bought, drummers were found and eventually gigs were played. After initial hype they landed a number of radio sessions with Radio 1, Radio Wales and an EP released through Slacyr Records as well as a tour of Wales with Texas Radio Band.
Two albums were produced in the next few years before a lengthy period of no recordings and only sporadic gigs before they resurfaced in 2017 to play Green Man Festival and record a new single with legendary Domino artist Bill Ryder-Jones on the Popty Ping Recording Company.
