GUEST,Graham Bradshaw New Modern Idiot Grunt Band Remember? (25) RE: New Modern Idiot Grunt Band Remember? 18 Jan 07

Somewhere in my tape archive, I have several recordings of the Grunt Band - recorded at Burnt Post Folk Club, The Freemasons (worth a thread on its own?!) and the Come Together concert in 1983. Some of that was broadcast on Mercia FM at the time, so quality not too bad in parts. (Note to myself - must look them out sometime)

I first remember hearing about them in about 1968/9 when we were doing a gig in London with the late great Alex Campbell, and he was raving about them, having just been up to COventry.

We later met them in Cov, which was when I realised it was Rod Felton, who I had previously met in London when he was sharing a house with Diz Disley.

I later, in 1970, moved to Coventry, and becamse good friends with Rob and Rod. I have to say, to my shame, that I don't see much of them these days. Must get out more!!
