Stingrab Records was a DIY label. It managed one single. An EP by a Country group called Contraband, the tracks on it were versions of 'If Not You', 'Old Shep', 'Apache' and 'Gypsy Woman', and it came out in 1977.  Its catalogue number was STINGRAB-23, which suggests that there might be other Stingrabs out there., The style of the labels suggests that the manufacturer also pressed Alvic Recordings.   There's no obvious connection between this band and the band of the same name who had a single out on Pirate Records some six years earlier, though they were both Country outfits; the vocalist sounds different, for one thing.  Any more information (where the name came from, in particular - a misprint?  Four members, two initials each?) would be welcome. Thanks to Robert Lyons For The Info.
