Biography

GRIMPLE was formed in November,1990 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a town cradled by the Blood Of Christ Mountains. We were raised on metal and early hardcore, but we were never afraid of listening to other types of music, like the SUGAR HILL GANG. GRIMPLE moved to Oakland, CA in August of 1991.



The first GRIMPLE recording was a four song EP called, “Get Me Out Of My Van, I Have No Key.” It was recorded in our Oakland practice space by Noah Landis (Neurosis) and our friend Darby. The music was melodic punk rock mixed with fast hardcore. GRIMPLE recorded its first full length LP, “Up Your Ass,” in March of 1992. It was recorded by Kevin Army in San Francisco at Sound & Vision Studios, and mixed at Dancing Dog Studios in Oakland. Now available from Prank Records.

GRIMPLE recorded its first full length LP, “Up Your Ass,” in March of 1992. It was recorded by Kevin Army in San Francisco at Sound & Vision Studios, and mixed at Dancing Dog Studios in Oakland.”UP YOUR ASS,” was first released by M&E Records (Murray and Eric), and It was later re-released by East Bay Menace Records. Our first LP was a success, and thousands were sold in the states, as well as Japan. We completed our first American tour in 1992, and it consisted of playing small clubs, basements, and garages. It was fun, and it was a great introduction to freedom for all of us. Now available from Prank Records.

    I remember, vividly, seeing Grimple open for Green Day in Scottsdale, AZ in the summer of '91 and the next day at my friend's crusty house. My buddy bought the 7" and I stole it from him. LOL. good times!

    I'm surprised this band hasn't got more plays. I figured a lot of people knew them, but...
