Grinspoon Officially Become A Classic Rock Band With 20th Anniversary Tour

Those Alt-Rock heroes of the 90s Grinspoon can now officially wear the Classic Rock badge. The band is reforming for a 20th anniversary tour to mark two decades since the release of their debut album ‘Guide To Better Living’.

Grinspoon rose to fame nurtured by Triple J and shows like Recovery in the 90s but now with their cross-over to classic rock the 20th anniversary tour has been dropped in the capable hands of Triple M to present across Australia.

Singer Phil Jamieson is uncomfortable with the tour being tied to the way-back machine. “I hate nostalgia, it gets my goat,” he said is a statement. “ What I do love are tunes, and we’ve got tunes! NBT – Balding Matters – Scalped are probably what are considered to be album tracks or ‘filler’, but I can’t wait to spit ‘em out with as much venom as I did as a 19 year old. Then there is Railroader – Repeat – Just Ace – Champion – Boundary …. it’s like a little treasure box of ditties! I don’t think I really knew what I was doing when I made Guide To Better Living, but I know that playing this album from start to finish is going to be one of the most challenging, enjoyable & kickass things I’ll ever do! Bring on the road, bring on the tour, bring on the shows… happy 20th birthday GTBL!”
