Words: Saam Das
London noiseniks Screaming Tea Party weren't ever really my jam, so to speak, so I'm surprised to find that I actually rather like one of their subsequent solo projects. Koichi Yamanoha has gone on to form Grimm Grimm, which is self-diagnosed as anything from psych baroque to acid folk. Regardless, we think it's anything but grim (grim).
We stumbled across Yamanoha's project following the announcement that he'd be supporting Big Deal in London this week - it's sold out but Grimm Grimm are playing a string of other London dates. If you can't make it to any of the dates, then don't fret. Instead, enjoy the following demos, especially the wonderfully understated 'Kazega Fuitara Sayonara'.
