Grandaddy are an American indie pop band formed in Modesto, California in 1992 by singer/guitarist/keyboardist Jason Lytle, bassist Kevin Garcia, and drummer Aaron Burtch; although a noisy, lo-fi approach characterized early recordings like 1994's Complex Party Come Along Theories, with the 1995 additions of guitarist Jim Fairchild and keyboardist Tim Dryden the group's sound expanded exponentially over the course of subsequent efforts including the unreleased Don't Sock the Tryer and the 1996 EP A Pretty Mess By This One Band.

Completely fried theremin wielding psychopaths from Victoria, Australia. Half of the band originated from the flat salt bush plains of Deniliquin and the other from the sea stained Anglesea coastline. Brought together through a share house in Carlton and a mutual love of Pavement, Thee Oh Sees and Nuggets Comps.
There are two artists with the name John Maus: (1) John Maus (born February 23, 1980) is an American composer and political philosophy and theory instructor at the University of Hawaiiʻi at Mānoa. Born and raised in the small town of Austin, Minnesota, his first experiments with music were at an early age--in his band the Janitors and by playing guitar for his church. In the early '00s he performed with Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, and more recently has released two self-produced albums of his own: "Songs" (2006), and "Love is Real" (2007).
Born in the south west of England in 1984, Jacob de Berker has been playing guitar since the age of sixteen, and writing songs from the moment he learnt his first three chords. Direct influences are elliott smith, nick drake, bob dylan, sufjan stevens to name a few but to describe his music tastes as eclectic is an understatement and although not obvious inspiration is taken from everything from classical to heavy metal via breakbeat, electronica and hip hop.
There are at least three artists named Sisu: 1. Los Angeles band, SISU, fronted by Sandra Vu. http://www.sisuband.com/
SISU is Sandra Vu. The LA-based singer/multi-instrumentalist layers airy, harmony-laden vocals over dreamy synthwave, which has been described as “Smithsian shoegaze” (Village Voice) and “Nightmarish Beach House” (Santa Barbara Independent). Though she’s a seasoned drummer (Dum Dum Girls, The Raveonettes, Boredoms, Dirty Beaches), she’s stepped out from behind the kit to center stage for SISU, opening on tour dates for Cat Power, Marnie Stern, DIIV, and Metronomy.
Ed Askew, a gay man, cut one of the best and most obscure LPs in the original ESP Disk’s vague rock/folk/freak series, issued eponymously and since reissued as Ask the Unicorn, before apparently dropping off the edge of his world. Years later, thanks to detective work by - naturally - Mr Clint Simonson of the De Stijl Records imprint, it turned out that not only was Askew still breathing but he had actually recorded a follow-up to his ESP Disk in 1970 that had lain in the can for decades.
More than one artist named Moonface. 1. Spencer Krug of Sunset Rubdown, Swan Lake, Wolf Parade and Fifths of Seven.
2. Phil Thompson AKA Moonface is a DJ and producer living, breathing the underground dance music scene for over 20 years now.
