GRIMELDA – “GEORGE THOROGOOD”
Grimelda (FKA The Faps) is the collaborative art-punk meets freak-rock project of Blair Colwell and Skyler Cafferata from Saskatoon.
After 10 years in the making, they’ve set their sights on global expansion, innovative musical collabs, and a live show that is even more refined and unhinged. Expect to be pleasantly annoyed and excited by a louder, weirder, and wilder duo that forever lurks in plain sight.
They’re now back with a new single, “George Thorogood.” Why’s it called “George Thorogood?” Cause we’re all George Thorogood.
George is a good old rocker dude who wrote songs about rocking out so we figured he’s a fitting subject. It’s about embracing your inner George and saying to yourself “heck ya, I rock!”
Stream “George Thorogood” on all platforms now.
“I’m George Thorogood! You’re George Thorogood! WE’RE George Thorogood!”
We literally and purposefully ripped off other rock songs and made our own “conventional” rock anthem. The point was twofold: rock music is dumb and everyone steals ideas but also rock ‘n roll is FUN so who cares.
There’s a reason musical tropes get recycled over and over and that’s because they’re effective. Also, most of our songs are rather eclectic so writing something “normal” is maybe a bit strange in the context of our band. It was really enjoyable and different to just write something straightforward.
Thanks for rocking out with us.
