"...just another nightcap...do it..."
Long time friends, partners in crime and lovers of all things dark, loud and chaotic, Mike York (Garden of Delight, Sweet Ermengarde, KALT to name but a few.....) and Gonzo (Love Like Blood) have decided that it was about time they paid homage to their musical roots in the only way they know how.
To be released in November 2019 on Bandcamp (vinyl and music cassette only), the Brothers Grimm have taken it upon themselves to select some of their life-defining tracks from their youth, or what at least passes for it in their eyes, and pass it through the filter of their own musical experiences.
A four track of much loved favourites from hardcore punk, post punk, dark rock, goth - call it what you will - Mike supplies trademark guitar and bass, overlayed with Gonz's signature bass vocals, and both combine to scrape up their inner emotions and deposit them without any apology, or quarter given, on the listener's aural palette.
The track listing is:
from England's Broken Bones in 1983
• 'One Millionth Happy Customer'
from Cassandra Complex. Leeds, 1987
• 'Company of Justice'
from English band Play Dead's final studio album in 1985
• 'Don't Want To Know If You Are Lonely'
by Husker Du included on their album Candy Apple Grey in 1986
"The tracks have been stripped back and re-assembled in the only way these two know how to do it..."
