michael a grammar are four young men from nottingham. the songs on this, their debut 'vitamin easy' ep on melodic records, were written, recorded and produced over the course of a summer in hometown brighton by childhood friends joel sayers and frankie mockett. their sound is informed by ultimate spinach, stone roses, clinic, david bowie, roxy music, pink floyd, pixies and broadcast (whose song michael a grammar gives the band their name). the band's facebook describes them as 'the alien lovechild of too many sunny weekends spent indoors listening to joy division and radiohead'. the sound of the four tracks here is transcendent, spacious and quietly anthemic - the beta band on ritalin.
