The Grimm Generation - The Last Record Party

From the flaming wreckage of the 'Record Industry' arise The Grimm Generation. Carmen Champagne and Jason P. Krug met for one date, thought better of it, so instead co-authored a book, 'Say Anything: Dispatches on Love, Lust and Longing from The Grimm Generation'. One night, Jason dropped by with acoustic in hand and convinced Carmen to sing. And the 'Post-Apocalyptic Pop Stars', The Grimm Generation was born. The GG design is simple: one guitar and two singers. The hook comes in the 'confessions', the loud and public sharing of their perception of modern 'love', told over tunes based on blues+country+glam+show music (= Rock And Roll) featuring emotionally wrung out vocals leaving no doubt that these are real moments, captured, reshaped, and harmonized with. The Grimm Generation hail from the suburbs of the Northeast, USA and have been compared to Lou Reed, X and The Doors.
The Grimm Generations "The Last Record Party" is an album full of thought provoking songs with a Velvets feel delivered by Carmen Champagne with her unique, sometimes haunting, voice.  Subsequent listens to this album have unearthed more depth and beauty that was not so apparent on first listening but have ensured it to become a mainstay in the collection.
