I'm really looking forward to seeing these guys at their London gig in a couple of weeks. Sam and Eric (who is from Memphis) were in Shrimp Boat, with whom the Grundies did some very enjoyable gigs in Memphis and Chicago back in 1992. They were exceptionally gracious hosts in their communal living space in Chicago, and I have very fond memories of that time. Somewhere, buried in my archives, is a nice version of a Shrimp Boat song called "Showboat," which bears no relation to The Sea and Cake song of the same title, with me playing tenor sax badly, recorded at their rehearsal space, on that trip. Which is another way of saying, please enjoy this completely unrelated piece of very fine music and film.
