Gordie Johnson recently stated in an interview with Guitarist UK,
"We're trying to find the common ground between punk, metal and gospel. I like to think we sound like Motorhead just got the job of backing up John Lee Hooker."
As reviewed in L.A. magazine Access: "GRADY has enough low end buzz and slide guitar to shake down the walls of the Alamo."
Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys lead singer/ Alternative Tentacles owner) has enthused "You guys are the missing link between Junior Brown and Black Flag."
This trio of tall Texans will captivate you with a sound somewhere between early ZZ Top and an alien abduction. Equal parts Southern Gospel and Satanic Ritual. Gordie "Grady" Johnson on lead vocals and guitar, "Big Ben" Richardson on bass, and Billy "Thunderball" Maddox beating the drums loud and proud, kneel at the altar of the one-chord stomp and make every show a unique offering.
As reviewed in Observer Music Monthly UK: "One of the bands that perhaps best define the city (Austin) today is GRADY. Cowboy Metal anyone?"
The new cd "A Cup of Cold Poison" was recorded live off the floor at Willie Nelson�s famed Pedernales recording studio and even features a spoken word introduction by the Red Headed Stranger himself.
Gordie Johnston is one of the great rock guitarists of all time and the show is only TEN bucks!
