Recording a new album it seems:
Never put a foot wrong and they have an incredible set of b sides and rarities out there!
probably came to post a thread about how long your shoe laces are
One of my favourite bands in the whole world. I tingled when I heard this news.
RATE GRANDADDY RECORDS:
Sophtware Slump>Under the Western Freeway>Sumday=Broken Down Comforter Collection>Just like the Fambly Cat>Signal to Snow Ratio EP>Todzilla EP=Windfall Varietal>Gathering Tape
Fambly Cat and the Jason Lytle albums were good but not great.
Second is pretty good too. Anyway it's good to have another Grandaddy album.
and adjusting my expectations accordingly
Isn't it more of a comeback than a reunion? I was always under the impression that GD was Jason Lytle plus session musicians, although that might be overstating it.
The Shepherd's Bush show a few years ago would have been worth it just for He's Simple... He's Dumb... He's the Pilot. Sounded like most of the room said "OK, are you ready?" under their breath.
Anyway, I'm happy this is on.
wump wump wump wuuuuuump
From a writing and recording perspective Grandaddy was just Jason Lytle. They were only a band for touring.
suggest that it won't be anything particularly special. The odds that just calling the project Grandaddy and doing a reunion tour will bring out something on the level of his best stuff are probably slim.
Though I like 'Fambly Cat' and his solo stuff it isn't his best work. There'll be a tour at least and that will be amazing.
