The cathartic force which is Grinderman, an ensemble featuring Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Martyn Casey, and Jim Sclavunos, launched their anticipated North American tour Thursday night with an electrifying sold out performance at Toronto's Phoenix Concert Theatre. In their review of the show, Spin Magazine raves "The ungodly squall produced by Nick Cave and three of his fellow moonlighting Bad Seeds (guitarist/violinist Warren Ellis, bassist Martyn Casey, and drummer Jim Sclavunos) was powerful enough to induce seizures, panic attacks, and hallucinations without any superfluous stimuli" and notes of lead crooner Nick Cave, "he immediately reassumes his mantle as one of rock's most compelling frontmen."
Grinderman are set to perform live this coming Monday night (11-15) on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The show airs at 12:30 PM on NBC. Check local listings by visiting: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com
