THE BISMARCK - Wild Prairie Rose LP
The Bismarck is a rock band that plays rock music. Playing shows and making records is just part of the deal and they do these things, too.
The band is comprised of four long-time friends from Grand Forks, North Dakota (well, Jury's from Bismarck originally, but who's counting?) who have slowly migrated out to the west coast of the US of A.
The Bismarck is a big fan of the Midwest work ethic and independent spirit. They book their own shows, engineer and release their own records, silkscreen their own shirts, load their own gear, drive their own van and - grudgingly - write their own promotional spew.
Their latest record, Wild Prairie Rose, is available in the UK exclusively from Gringo and they'll be doing a tour in 2014 that we'll keep updated here:
