Grinderswitch | Southern Rock Band
Grinderswitch was a southern rock band formed in Warner Robbins, Georgia. They recorded for Capricorn Records, but never rose to same success as their label mates, The Marshall Tucker Band or The Allman Brothers Band.
Grinderswitch: The Baddest Southern Roots Music Band
In 1973 four young musician's, Joe Dan Petty, Larry Howard, Dru Lombar, and Rick Burnett, moved to a farm outside of Warner Robbins, Ga. For 10 months the band wrote and rehearsed material for what was to become their first album on the rising Capricorn label. The album "Honest to Goodness", The band GRINDERSWITCH. With the release of their first album came non stop touring with The Allman Bros Band, The Marshall tucker Band, The Charlie Daniels Band, Wet Willie and Lynyrd Skynrd. For the next 3 years the band stayed on the road and released the critically acclaimed "Macon Tracks" and "Pullin Together". Then in 1976 after returning from a major European tour with MTB and Bonnie Bramlett ,Grinderswitch entered the studio to record what would become their biggest Album "Redwing" but there was problems with the label and the album was shelved. The band sat without work or any future prospects of breaking the stalemate for 6 months. Times were tough but they stuck together and in 1977 "Redwing" was released on the newly formed Dick Wooley Rabbit/Atco label. The band was impressed by the amount of promotion the new album was receiving and went into the studio and recorded 10 tracks for an album with the working title "Chasing Wild Desires" Then came DISCO. All of a sudden the Southern Music scene just disappeared.
Grinderswitch was an American southern rock band. They recorded a number of albums for Capricorn Records in the 1970s, but never achieved the same widespread recognition enjoyed by some of the label's other artists, such as The Allman Brothers Band and Marshall Tucker Band. They also recorded for Atlantic. In the UK they are perhaps best known for their recording 'Pickin' the Blues', which was used for many years by the disc jockey John Peel as the theme tune for his BBC radio shows.
