Lord Grunge of Grand Buffet Guest DJs
Cindy Howes recently invited Lord Grunge of Grand Buffet to play Guest DJ on The Morning Mix. Cindy tasked him with bringing Hip Hop to people that might not otherwise like the genre.
Grunge’s first song was Run DMC's “It’s Like That”. “Run DMC is overall probably the most influential group for me, personally,” Grunge said.
The second song in Lord Grunge’s set list was Ice-T’s “Reckless”. “That track in particular is awesome, some older Ice-T stuff of the soundtrack to the movie Break In,” Grunge said. He highly recommended Cindy add the film to her queue.
The last song Lord Grunge played is “50 Ways” by Kool Moe Dee, a song that samples “Fifty Ways To Leave Your Lover” by Paul Simon, someone people that might not be as familiar with rap will likely appreciate. “I’m always going to side with [Kool Moe Dee] between him and LL Cool J, I think he won that battle with Deathblow, but I wanted to play something a little more mellow."
Both members of Grand Buffet, Lord Grunge and Grape-A-Don, have new solo albums out and they’ll be showing off their new material at sold out shows at Brillobox. Grand Buffet has been around for a really long time in Pittsburgh, and they’ve been touring a ton. “We traveled quite a bit and established little pockets of fans all over the western world. We’ve kind of been on hiatus for a few years now, and I’m just excited now that we’re both middle-aged losers, we’re back with solo albums. It’s like the perfect time in someone’s life to come out with a solo album, when you’re old and no one cares about you,” Grunge joked.
Cindy asked about the new solo records from the Grand Buffet members. “Well, mine is great, the other guy’s is good. Definitely worth buying if you’re a Grand Buffet fan, but mine’s worth buying if you’re alive.” Additionally, Cindy asked about new Grand Buffet music, and Grunge revealed that there will be a new Grand Buffet record next year.
