Here are some things about me
I live in Madison, Wisconsin.
I bring a flask to a gunfight. I will stop to say hi to your dog and will probably also walk your dog if you need me to. I am at my most ambitious a guerrilla in an eons-old revolution of common sense that began when monkeymen first figured out they each could kill a deer and live another week or they could all surround a mastodon and live through the winter. I spent my early years in Iowa and my early adulthood in Brooklyn, New York. I made a living for a while as a business journalist. I won an ASBPE Silver award once for my regular work for American Demographics in the early 2000s. I am not even kidding about this.
I started doing music in NY with The Hangdogs in the mid-1990s. After a hard slog through starter clubs and some weird creative choices, we made some pretty good music. I moved back to Iowa in 2004 to help my folks through some tough times. I moved to Wisconsin in 2011 to help recall the dumb, shitheel, union-busting governor. I think it is fantastic that we as a society get our moralistic lectures on how-things-work from people thumping books written by people who had yet to invent pants and no clue where the big thing in the sky went at night.
If you would like to book me to play a show, or your house, or your wedding, or perform your wedding, I'm pretty reclusive anymore and it is unlikely you can. I may make exceptions for good people. No MAGA chuds. And, yes, I discriminate against Nazis. If you're one of those, fuck you. If you're one of those and you've previously purchased my records, thank you and I honestly don't care so stop bringing it up as a reason I should listen to your shitty opinions. If you were on a barstool next to me, I'd move. Anyway, if you're not one of those and you want to do the other, zip me an email to start off. I can be reached via grimm reality 1 @ gmail. Just take out all the spaces and slap on .com and it will come right to my computer via technology!
