Grimace Federation’s originality stems in part from the eclecticism of their influences. Ranging from Black Sabbath and Frank Zappa to Tortoise and Tool, the Federation has absorbed it all in their inimitable sound. And while many bands are content to admire in obscurity, Grimace Federation’s talents have allowed them to actually work side by side with their heroes. 2008’s release, Tasted By Chemists, featured indie hip-hop legend Aesop Rock, as well as the Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra and top-notch producers AC Slater and Xylos. In late 2010, after performing alongside the likes of Ween, Tortoise, and The Disco Biscuits, the group released On Velvet.
