The Gruntled


Australian avant-medieval improvised drone combo The Gruntled started when asked to contribute a cover of a '60s Australian garage punk song to Melbourne radio station 3CR's "Wild About You" - a book and cd paying tribute to that scene. The Gruntled chose to do The Missing Links' "Drivin' Me Insane". This recording was made by Nick, Ricarda, Matt on drums and some hired help. You can read the book and more about the project here: http://www.3cr.org.au/way/ Read more on Last.fm

and this is the lineup which gruntles on to this day. Nick Potts - Crumhorn, bagpipes, shawm, Jew's harp, harmonicas, Vox Jaguar organ, looping, droning, squeals, skronks and squinks Ricarda Reeck - Hurdy gurdy Richard Walsh - Guitars, more looping, droning and feedback John Fenton, Craig Darryl "Skull" McPeade - The drums Matt Gleeson - Bass and drums Occasional vocalists have included: - Paul Kidney (from Southern Fried Kidneys and Melbourne's Blow Up nightclub, on a particularly shambolic version of "Inna Gadda Da Vida" and a note-perfect (ha) version of "Tomorrow Never Knows"); - Alan Hislop (from The Moffs et al on a live version of "Drivin' Me Insane" which climaxed with a stage dive to the ground over 10 feet below); - Daisy Buchanan "extemporaneously pontificating" over a loop based on Flipper's "Sex Bomb".
