Just a really short post to bring you the video from one of my highlights of this year’s Great Escape Festival – Let’s Eat Grandma. It was my second time seeing the band live and they were just as spellbinding as the first.
I’ve already written plenty of words about Eat Shiitake Mushrooms on a previous post (here), but make sure you give the video a play even if you've heard the track plenty of times - it takes you further into their world. Eat Shiitake Mushrooms is what I imagine Studio Ghibli and Dario Argento would come up with if they ever made a pop record. Disturbing, menacing but curiously uplifting, this is a record that puts a big ‘must trying harder’ comment down on the music school reports of not only 90% of vacuous mainstream pop music but so called ‘alternative’ acts who are just rehashing what has gone before. Different? Very much so. Thank god for Let’s Eat Grandma.
