After a brief web search, "googling" my long-defunct band Rattail Grenadier, I came across this forum, and a couple of mentions of the band.

The rest of the band and myself have long since moved on to other projects, and even joined bands that have gone on to bigger things, such as MTV-aired videos, appearances on major movie soundtracks, etc. Regardless, the 10 years we spent in our old band are still near and dear to our hearts in many ways. We even still get snail mail at our old P.O. Box address, which has since been taken over by Squirtgun, a band to which three of the former Rattail Grenadier members still belong. So, we decided to throw up a simple page, with 4 songs available for streaming of the old material, a fairly thorough bio, and few rather dated (although interesting) old photos.

Here it is:

Enjoy!

After reading that thread, I could weep for the joy of remembering the obscure bands I saw mentioned there.

TMBG is my favorite all-time band. Their latest releases "The Spine" and "Here Come The A-B-C's" are fantastic. Even my 16-month-old daughter likes their music! (They are coming to Cleveland this weekend - we'll be at the KidsFest on Saturday.)

But to also see mentions of Big Wreck, Matthew Sweet, and Hoodoo Gurus - man, that just made my day. Just thinking of their tune takes me back and makes me smile.

What a great pick-me-up!

Wow, my past comes back to haunt me.

Thanks Mass, it's always good to hear your music.

Listening to the stuff you put up, I stand by my original statement that I still can't understand why you didn't make it bigger.

Wow, one effective way to get my good side is to plug the Smalls or Big Wreck.

Thanks for the kind words, Tim!

I'll go ahead and throw up a link to the Squirtgun MySpace site, in case you're interested. Three of the former Rattail Grenadier members ended up in Squirtgun, which is still active to this day, on a part-time basis (we have two college professors in the band, currently separated by over 2,000 miles...).

and also the regular website, with more news, info, and photos, but less immediate sound capabilities...

Enjoy!

I blame fighting for this. A little better than a year ago, the two hosts of a pro wrestling and mixed martial arts website I frequent went to Las Vegas for a UFC event (Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Couture, if you're keeping score).
