‘Gramme are amazing and have influenced Hot Chip a lot over the years, it just sounds great when they play together' – Joe Goddard
After more than a decade of silence – no gigs, no music, no nothing – Gramme returned with their debut album Fascination. The cult around the band and their lone release, the Pre-Release EP, continued to grow until in 2011 some mysterious 12" bootlegs of Like U began to appear, with edits by Joe Goddard of Hot Chip. A few months later self released white labels begin to circulate with new Gramme material. Those EP's have gone on to form Fascination, the first full studio album by Gramme.
Gramme is the musically pioneering band that went missing in action sometime around 2000. Originally signed to Trevor Jackson's Output label, the band emerged in the mid-nineties with a sound so out of step with the cultural milieu they found themselves swimming against the tide.
More than 10 years after, they released they first ‘proper’ album in 2013, on Tummy Touch : ‘Fascination’. This is a band that is still experimenting, still trailblazing and, at long last, having fun again.
