Salon no 1:
Happening when the mood takes us at the Orb in Knareborough - a social and musical evening of sonic goodness, genre exploration, entertainment and cabaret fun, curated by Knareborough troglodytes cAVE.
Saturday 10th December is our second night, and we present: the 'genius warped world' that is the fantastic York based Grinny Grandad.
About Grinny Grandad:
Imagine Mr Scruff drinking cups of tea with The Chemical Brothers whilst babysitting DJ Yoda and you might start to come close to the sounds infused by Grinny Grandad. Based on the ‘scissors and string’ mind of Chris Morton, these guys fuse surreal references with old school record-crate creativity and come out of it with an infectious brand of subterranean pop that makes you feel good deep down inside.
Grinny Grandad’s first single was infectious, break beat anthem, ‘The Good Girl’ which appeared on the soundtrack for French film La Croisiere last year, gaining support from BBC Radio presenters (Annie Mac, Craig Charles, Huw Stephens) and publications such as Data Transmission who heralded the song as a ‘shot of sunshine’. The track was later featured in MixMag with a rating 5/5.
An abundance of performances, including live sessions at Maida Vale for the BBC and festival appearances at Glastonbury and Beatherder established the band as one to watch and secured a record deal.
From there, they went on to work with Askillz and Drumattic Twins (Finger Lickin Records).
After a two year break, Grinny Grandad is back and set to wow us with the highly addictive ‘Keep Your Hands to Yourself’, yet another funky jam, set to be released on Jam City Records.
Fans include Groove Armada who described ‘The Good Girl’ as ‘Motown meets Def Jam’ and Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6). With recent syndication for Channel 5, this is surely a sign of things to come.
“Grinny Grandad are maybe a band who signal the future for music.“ - Rachel Wade, BBC
“I’ve not heard drums played with such power and feeling since Jon Bonham of Led Zeppelin.” - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 music
“Grinny Grandad have something that you just can’t resist - vibe, energy and originality.” - Finger Lickin Records
