If Nick Cave didn't have enough to in 2007 dealing with his Bad Seeds he set up Grinderman as a more rock orientated project to explore once again the murky scuzz racket of his earlier band the Birthday Party. The first fruits of the project was this self titled debut which also featured Cave's long term right hand man Warren Ellis (the Dirty Three). The result was a raw and primal offering, sonically at odds with the more gentle yearning of his Bad Seeds work.

As easy as it is to describe Grinderman as a dirty album that spits rock bullets, it's actually a quite artful collection of songs, full of inventive twists, turns and sounds. It's challenging to the ear at first because it is so different from anything else you might hear, but great albums are often like that. You expect them to sound a certain way because that is what you have been accustomed to hearing from an artist. If you need a soundtrack for your next appearance as the black sheep at whatever family function lies ahead, Grinderman have you covered with their comfortably acute riffs.
