Brothers Grimmer

Following the launch of their Second Album "The Big Red Book Of Nursery Rants", Brothers Grimmer are revving up for a busy year. They are a well known band in the Bournemouth area, but are aiming to make this the year they branch out further afield too.

The 3rd album is in the gestation period, and they are looking at possible festival dates already booked such as the Greenwich Festival. Having been interviewed on Fire Radio and Bay Radio, they are looking to up the ante this year.

Brothers Grimmer are often compared with a variety of bands depending on the track.

Try and imagine that all members of Led Zepplin, Tool, Jethro Tull, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Radiohead and Prodigy had donated cells to a scientist lab for studies. Suppose a Stan Lee (Marvel Comics) style accident happened and they all conjoined to create a mutant band. The resulting abomination of scientific development would almost be Brothers Grimmer ...

Now imagine they started dressing in stranger clothes than their predecessors and you're getting close as you probably can without experiencing it for yourself.

The general opinion of fans and reviews so far confirms the description.

"Brothers Grimmer have their own corner of the local music scene covered. That can only be a good thing, especially when they produce such gems as Who I Am ... reminds me of Jethro Tull or Blind Melon, but there’s a
roughness to it that gives it it’s own identity."

Dan Renton (Dorset Rock Online)

" ... mentally leafing through my record collection at home, trying to figure out who it was that the Brothers Grimmer reminded me of. I failed, despite a fairly eclectic mixture of musics in my collection. They look like ZZ Top and The Prodigy got together at a party one night and had a love child ..."

Laura Cousins (Bournemouth Creatives)

" ... The Brothers Grimmer delivered a gut-stirring mix of heavy rock with super-sexy funk. And lots of body hair. An unbelievable amount of body hair, in fact. The guitarists boasted beards grown to suitable (rock) god length. ..."

Claire Wyburn (Bournemouth Creatives)

"Nursery Rants has been easily my most played album recently, it's a genuine masterpiece! Freakin' awesome stuff guys."

John Stammers

John Stammers lives in Chorlton, a leafy Suburb of Manchester, England. With artists, musicians, and young entrepreneurs setting their roots down and the streets littered with Shops, restaurants, café’s, and Bars, it has been said that Chorlton is the “Laural Canyon of the North of England” and John Stammers is part of the Furniture. The Dulcimer, a tavern dedicated to the gospel of folk, jazz, pop and all things Balearic, is where you might catch John either playing Live or talking music till the midnight. John has now finished recording a new LP which will be released on Wonderfulsound on 14th February 2011. Time has been spent on recording these songs with everything being mixed to tape. Vinyl copies of this LP will mastered from tape. Producing a true analogue experience. The only digital process occurs when the songs are transferred to CD and even then it was transposed via a Vinyl cutting Lathe so even the CD master has that authentic tone and quality of a vinyl record. John Stammers is going to capture the hearts of many a music fan with this killer album a mix jazz/blues/folk/balearic filled with well-crafted melodies and instrumental pieces, hints of trad arrangements and flashes of contemporary Popular song. John has managed to forge his way into a rather overpopulated live music scene and has effortlessly left his mark.
