Greenskeepers

With a teenager Ween-like absurdist love of life that sometimes edges on creepy, Greenskeepers top bass-heavy beats with inside jokes, succeeding in going for a satirical home-recording task from the bed room towards the dancefloor before these were old enough to legally drink in a club. Wayne Curd and Nick Maurer got the name Greenskeepers from the actual fact which they both paid the expenses by operating as course caddies.

Immediately after, SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA indie Om Information licensed the tunes “Cream,” “Man inside your home,” and “Proceed” towards the ABC series Grey’s Anatomy. Greenskeepers merged their beats with press once again by remixing the theme track from your Pixar/Disney blockbuster The Incredibles around the Incredibles Remix EP. Following a two-year globe tour, in past due 2006 their third recording, Polo Club, required shape with weighty motivation from ’80s post-punk (specifically Gary Numan and Speaking Mind), and once again featured their typical mix of quirky home music and twisted humor, supplemented by acoustic guitar hooks and their brand idiosyncratic vocals.
