Gordie Johnson recently stated in an interview with Guitarist UK, “We’re trying to find the common ground between punk, metal and gospel. I like to think we sound like Motorhead just got the job of backing up John Lee Hooker.”
As reviewed in L.A. magazine Access: “Grady has enough low end buzz and slide guitar to shake down the walls of the Alamo.” Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys lead singer/ Alternative Tentacles owner) has enthused, “You guys are the missing link between Junior Brown and Black Flag.”

This trio of tall Texans will captivate you with a sound somewhere between early ZZ Top and an alien abduction. Equal parts Southern Gospel and Satanic Ritual; Gordie “Grady” Johnson on lead vocals and guitar, “Big Ben” Richardson on bass, and Billy “Thunderball” Maddox beating the drums loud and proud, kneel at the altar of the one-chord stomp and make every show a unique offering. As reviewed in Observer Music Monthly UK: “One of the bands that perhaps best define the city (Austin) today is Grady …. Cowboy Metal anyone?”

The new CD A Cup of Cold Poison was recorded live off the floor at Willie Nelson’s famed Pedernales recording studio and even features a spoken word introduction by the Red Headed Stranger himself.
