THE GRIP WEEDS (USA)
Their sound is like one of these old, old castles: Beautiful, mysterious, ornate and totally in the tradition of all their ancestors: Lord Beau Brummel, King Neil Young 1 and the knights of the Ramones, whose pictures are placed at the famous gallery of ancestral portraits. If you are holding a candlestick pass it. It seems as if it winks at you. "The Grip Weeds" are keeping this heritage in their House of Vibes. They are fascinated by this kind of culture which they read. They got to know certain psychedelic legends in their huge library. There they are necromancing by simply using their electric instruments. There they are blowing up the context of space and time. At such a tournament they are letting compete the knights of the British invasion with their power pop spears against the warriors of grunge with their swords of rock. The first prize one can win at this tournament is the psychedelic banner which was belonging to "The Grip Weeds" for generations and with which they always move off to find the Holy Grail. They tell us of its mind-expanding old mare in all their street ballads.
