Grinderman – Grinderman 2

the eagerly anticipated second album from Grinderman, titled Grinderman 2, is out today and in this writer’s humble opinion it will not disappoint. certainly not fans of the first record

i’ve been playing it for 3 days now and there is a freshness and energy that so many younger bands seem to fail to achieve which is pretty remarkable considering Grinderman have a collective age of about 200 years. plus there’s plenty of dirty, dirty guitar and aggresion and distortion built from the sounds that Warren Ellis unleashes from his electric bouzouki

i have uploaded the albums second track, Worm Tamer, to Soundcloud. on hearing this track while visiting the band in the studio Jason Spaceman (Spaceman 3/Spritualized) is quoted as saying, ‘Are you guys aware of just how fucked up this sounds?’

below that you will also find a version of the single Heathen Child, renamed Super Heathen Child and featuring Robert Fripp of King Crimson fame. this is available on the limited edition 12″ vinyl

Grinderman 2 is released today on Mute Records

and if you want to catch them live follow this link for details and perhaps i’ll see you at the Hammersmith Apollo on the 1st October
