Grimble Grumble S/T LP 1998
just about anyone heavy into music has had heavy doses of "shoegaze" beginning as early as the late 80's with groups from the u.k dominating the scene - my bloody valentine, slowdive, swervedriver etc. and other slightly lesser known groups like loop, bark psychosis, seefeel etc..however beginning in 1995 via the midwest spacerock scene, these for-runners of the genre began with singles on Enraptured and Orchre in the UK but also caught attention of labels such at Burnt Hair and Rocket Racer. with heavy nods to Windy & Carl, FSA, Amp and other spaced out drone groups of the period. Grimble Grumble, this album in particular really made waves when it was released in 1998. its elusive cover art (no band name, record label or track titles anywhere) in all it's shiney bronze glory only hand a letter pressed number on the back which seemed to be in an addition of 1000? all in all when cross-referenced with other friends collections that were also into the spacerock scene at the time, this record is somehow missing... possibly more rare than it seems, it remains a pillar in the Sanity Muffins archive from this period. Highly Recommended!!...
