Episode 21 - Lord Grunge / by Dan Keech

Lord Grunge is one half of the legendary Grand Buffet. He’s recently released two excellent solo records, as well as releasing two records with Shark Tank. Grunge is one my closest friends in the world, and he’s always been like an older brother to me, in the rap game and in life. I was excited to get him to break down this detailed history of Grand Buffet.

He talks about Grand Buffet’s early shows in restaurants, biker bars and parking lots in the outskirts of Pittsburgh. We talk about their early opening tours with Wesley Willis, Nature Kids and Sage Francis. He breaks down becoming a headlining touring act off the strength of their live show, as well as the burnout of relying on touring as a sole source of income.

Mike Riley hooked us up with an excellent homage to Black Sheep’s A Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing. It all went down at the Lineup Room.
