A reissue of the 1993 classic album from Memphis rockers THE GRIFTERS. The Grifters was a 1990s indie rock band based in Memphis who released albums on Doink, Sonic Noise, Shangri-La Records, and Sub Pop Records. The band originally formed in the late 1980s as A BAND CALLED BUD, with vocalist/guitarist SCOTT TAYLOR, bassist TRIPP LAMKINS, and drummer DAVE SHOUSE. After being renamed the Grifters (after the novel by Jim Thompson) by 1990, Shouse joined Taylor on guitar, with STANLEY GALLIMORE taking over on the drums. Songwriting duties were shared between Shouse, Taylor and Lamkins. For several years in the 1990s they recorded primarily at Easley McCain Recording and were closely affiliated with Memphis’s Shangri-La Records label for a time. Jeff Buckley was a vocal supporter of The Grifters and was close friends with the band.  "Beneath the fuzz and the clatter, the secrets of the band's underground allure lay intact. The guitars were dipped deep in the blues tradition of their hometown and the rhythm section often took detours into jazz. Mr. Shouse had a sixth sense for pop melody that made the audience work to retrieve the perfect pop pearl that lay inside cracked new rockers."—The New York Times
