Biography

Birmingham, United Kingdom (1993 – 2003)

There are at least 3 artists named Grover:

1. Sesame Street, New York City, New York (1967 - present)
Originally played by Frank Oz and now portrayed by Eric Jacobson
Grover is a valiant, caring blue monster who is chock-full of childlike exuberance. The boisterous little monster often gets himself into pickles by rushing into situations without weighing the consequences.

Excitable Grover loves to explain new concepts, though he sometimes has a tough time expressing his thoughts clearly. Opposites are a particularly difficult idea for him to explain, but he always manages to get his point across in the end, even though he sometimes swoons dramatically from all the effort.

2. A Birmingham based post-rock outfit who released several records on Bearos Records.

Between 1993-2003, Grover released a host of albums, singles and split releases on independent labels around the world. Broadcasts on BBC Radio1 (including a Peel Session in 2001), plus airtime on a variety of independent stations in Europe and the USA, helped Grover build a dedicated international fan-base and influence the UK post-rock scene.

    I was so proud when Grover traveled to my country, and "Sesame Street" showed it. =)

    Grover is a woefully underrated Sesame Street character. He actually rivals Cookie Monster for the top spot.

    These songs aren't by the cuddly muppet, they are by some less than kid friendly band but unfortunately last.fm doesn't allow you to block the whole group so you have to wait for one of these horrible songs to come on so you can individually block each song. SO far I'm on nearly month 6 of trying to block these songs with no end in sight.
