The Grievous Angels are an alternative solution country music group from Tempe, AZ, that recorded albums for Bloodshot Information. Like the Aged 97’s, Grievous mixes country, rock and roll, and bluegrass right into a hard-driving, frenetic audio. At concerts they’ll play the Sex Pistols’ “Physiques,” yet there is also a far more acoustic alter ego music group known as Ned Beatty as well as the Inbreds that has bluegrass and folk. The music group was called after Gram Parsons’ 1973 seminal country-rock record Grievous Angel. Earl C. Whitehead (aka Russell Sepulveda) fronts the group, performing lead, playing classical guitar, and composing lots of the band’s tracks. Dan Henzerling co-produced the band’s 1998 record, Miles for the Rail, and has electric guitar and sings. He caused Robin Wilson in a few bands within the ’80s, like the Gin Blossoms for a short while in 1988. Micky Ferrell performed in LA for a long time before signing up for the Grievous Angels on bass, and Jesus H. Navarro has drums. Jon Rauhouse may be the newest member, playing from metal, banjo, and mandolin to Hawaiian electric guitar. The music group released its debut record, Angels and Inbreds, on Bloodshot Information in 1995, accompanied by New Town of Sin in 1997 and Kilometers around the Rail in 1998.
