Grotus

Using their eccentric mixture of disparate musical styles, San Francisco’s Grotus easily fit into extremely well using the 1990s freewheeling alt-rock spirit — so well, therefore freewheeling, actually, that hardly anyone remembers their existence. Birthed combined with the 10 years itself, the quartet made up of Lars Fox (vocals/examples), Adam Tanner (acoustic guitar/bass/examples), John Carson (bass/examples), and Bruce Boyd documented many albums (including 1991’s Dark brown, 1993’s Slow Movement Apocalypse, and 1996’s Mass) offering heavily digital/commercial distortions of alt-rock and metallic — all topped with frequently inscrutable, almost dadaist lyrics decried inside a schizophrenic selection of voices. That Grotus were able to attract a little cult following nearly goes without stating, but mass approval was probably by no means an option, therefore, after becoming juggled by several well-intentioned but similarly perplexed independent brands, the group’s profession (also filled up with many EPs and remix units) finally floor to a halt in the past due ’90s, combined with the alt-rock era’s excitement for anything therefore quirky.
