Psych-rock-punk is GrimSkunk

GrimSkunk, one of Canada’s most enduring and hard-working independent psych-rock-punk bands, is back with their new album Set Fire.

Recorded by Gus Van Go and Werner F (Priestess, The Stills) in Sydney, the long-awaited follow-up to Fires Under the Road is first and foremost a journey to the other side of the world, where spontaneity and instinctiveness were foremost from start to finish of the creative process.

Grimskunk-photo-de-presse-2012Delving into the band’s rich history of sound, influences and inventiveness, the album captures the GrimSkunk spirit with pure, raw energy and emotion; a whirlwind of punk angst and outrage, and the hopeful, almost hippie idealism of those who dare to dream. As always, the band allowed their environment ‘down under’ to permeate and inspire their music, inviting local Aboriginal artist and didjeribone player Tjupurru to perform and create freely on two songs: Falling into Shadow and Set Fire to the Nation, lending a dark trance-like and distinctly Australian sound to the tracks.

Tonight Friday January 24 at the Tatts Hotel in Lismore.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
