WE ARE IDIOT GRINS

 
 

In 2012 Idiot Grins made Quarry. East Bay Express inexplicably referred to us as, “zydeco-rockish” and said the album was “charming but torpid” and “self-released”. Technically, the East Bay Express is also “self-released” so dudes, chill out!


NOW, we bring you our newest, BIG MAN. We made this over 2014 and ’15, and had help from some heavy hitters. This time, we were thrilled to record with Johnnie Bamont  and Mic Gillette from Tower of Power and Huey Lewis and the News on horns, and the incomparable Joe Goldmark on pedal steel. We hope you like the album!


MacEgon Voyce at axs.com says "now there are idiot grins sliding off the faces of all those they've left in their sonic wake." -- and we agree with him!
