As a power trio UK band Grifter have been making lots of noise since 2003. After a handful of high energy EPs their self-titled full-length showcases more sides of the depth of their sound - they even play slow blues songs. All members are huge fans of Seventies rock, while they lyrics deal with stupid guys, beer and women (not necessarily in that order).
Grifter is the kind of band you hope to catch playing on the cramped stage of a pub in the rougher neighbourhood. With a tightfisted sound that is clear and powerful songs like Asshole Parade and Strip Club the clientele will welcome them well deserved cheers (and lots of free Guinness).
Ollie Stygall: guitars, vocals
Phil Harris: bass
