Y U So Shady
2008 edition of the Austin, TX band's debut, completely remixed by band leader Gordie Johnson and re-sequenced by Jello Biafra plus two cookin' live bonus tracks not on original release. Grady is a razor-sharp power trio fronted by guitar master Johnson who counts gold and platinum records on his wall from his stint in Toronto, Canada with Big Sugar. With picks on all his fingers, he rips the strings, loud as hell, through a little Fender amp for pedal steel guitars. Grady has a fiercer, more direct sound than his previous band: A perfect fit for Alternative Tentacles. For fans of Hank III, ZZ Top, Motörhead, Rory Gallagher, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Fu Manchu, Queens of the Stone Age, Nashville Pussy and Drunk Horse. 13 tracks.
