About this album

In February 2006, the four musicians that are Grinderman booked themselves into London’s Metropolis Studios for a five-day marathon of non-stop demo sessions, resulting in several hours of raw material.
In April 2006, Grinderman entered RAK studios, London, for a week with producer Nick Launay. They re-worked the raw material into thirteen songs, returning to Metropolis in October to mix them.

Warren: “It was meant to be really open liberating thing. We went to places we would not normally go… and then tried to push it even further…”
Marty: “Having Nick on the guitar changes the whole dynamic.
Warren: “Launay gets good sounds down. We didn’t want any obstacles between the band sound and the production, so Launay was perfect.”
Jim: “The name Grinderman seemed to suit the band. It sums up the sort of music we are making. We grind.”
NICK CAVE: vocals, electric guitar, organ, piano
WARREN ELLIS: electric bouzouki, Fendocaster, violin, viola, acoustic guitar, backing vocals
MARTYN CASEY: bass, acoustic guitar, backing vocals
JIM SCLAVUNOS: drums, percussion, backing vocals
While everything is quiet and easy
Mr. Grinder can have his way…
— Memphis Slim, 1941

    Like fredvomjupiter said: It's because of these crappy track-names last.fm uses (even if musicbrainz uses others) Have a look at Grinderman's top tracks

    i guess the correct song titles are not allocated with the album. when i listen to it, i don't get the album cover, but the main artist picture on my page. this might also be the cause for few listeners here... i am sure more people listened to these songs, because grinderman is one of the best albums of 2007. it's just great!
