Here’s episode 38 with The Grimtones!
The Grimtones stopped by the All Independent Reno back-shack last week to talk about how they first got together, the new album they’re currently working on at Dogwater Studios and a cool story about the times they met The Kills at the Fox Theater in Oakland. Michelle Belle (Guitars, Vocals, Keys, Bass, Mandolin, Little Tambourine) and Carter Stallon (Drums, Vocals, Bass, Harmonica, Guitar, Ukelele, Slide Whistle) had been a duo until they found bass player Nic Taro (bass, vocals) during summer 2017.
I had first heard of The Grimtones when they agreed to play the Swigsmas show at Headquarters Reno during winter 2017. After having heard their latest single released 12-8-17, Last Words (Get Up and Move) a few weeks before the show on 100.1 The X Locals Only, I was thrilled to have them play a show with my band SWIGS. Referring to their musical talent, during their performance at Headquarters, Alex Alcanter from Prince Robot leaned over to me and asked “What are we even doing?!”. The Grimtones have proven to be a must see Reno band and I’m really looking forward to their next release.
