The Grande Machine is Proud to announce we have joined up with Zero Budget Records out of LaCrosse, WI!!!
As Zero Budget puts things:
"An evening of high energy rock & roll transferred from a small Minneapolis stage to a hole-in-the-wall bar capacity crowd on a muggy humid-saturated Minnesota twilight. Isn't this what rock and roll is about?
Zerobudget is proud to announce the signing of Minneapolis based rock/punk inspired rockaholics the Grande Machine. Think MC5 drinking with The New York Dolls listening to Kiss and arguing about if The Dead Boys or The Pixies are better bands.
In 2008 a band came together consisting of four veterans of the Minnesota Rock scene to began playing bombastic, huge rock and roll.
The Grande Machine consists of Mash Ando on Lead Vocals and Guitar, Vic Champion on Guitar, Robbie Dee filling the bottom end Bass and Pete Rex on Drums. Zerobudget became interested in the band after catching of wind of the bands demo and reviews of their enthusiastic live shows and fan comments. After one fan described their live show as "being f***** by rock and roll" we knew they were ZBR material.
The Grande Machine will be releasing their debut full length threw Zerobudget Records late spring with a definitive release date to follow in the coming weeks. Check back to here some tidbits from this great band or visit their myspace page."
We couldn't be more pleased!!!
