The Grifters - Stan Gallimore (drums), Tripp Lamkins (bass), Dave Shouse (vocals, guitar) and Scott Taylor (vocals, guitar) – were one of the top rock ‘n roll bands of the 1990s. They blew out of Memphis, TN at the beginning of the decade emanating from the 3 piece noise-rock trio called A Band Called Bud.
No band toured more or rocked harder than the Grifters. No band equaled their level of recorded output while destroying their crowds one show at a time. They toured with the best of the best: Flaming Lips, Fugazi, Pavement, Guided by Voices, Jeff Buckley, Red Red Meat, and even the legendary Simple Ones.
Fat Possum Records are happy to announce that they are making two classic Grifters albums available once again on glorious vinyl. The reissues of 1993's One Sock Missing and 1994's Crappin You Negative will be released via the label in August 2016, both masterpieces which defiantly stand the testament of time and are chock full of moody and memorable musical treasures.
