Slicing Grandpa is an experimental music/noise rock band based in Seattle, Washington. The group formed in the spring of 1993 in Elmira, New York, by John Laux and Lance Tarr.[1] The group's sound is minimalistic, repetitive and harsh, with recordings tending to be produced at high volume on inexpensive handheld recorders. The band's sound is sometimes compared to that of Smegma.[2] The band has released numerous EP's and singles over the years, with the majority of more recent releases being put out on vinyl records. Compilation 7" record projects include one with San Francisco based Rubber-O-Cement, one with both Penetration Camp and Sparkle Girl (also in Seattle), and one with France's Placenta Popeye. In February 2009, Slicing Grandpa played a show at a Seattle performance space, the Josephine, along with noise artist John Wiese.[3] The group performs regularly in the Seattle area, and is currently working on new material for release later in 2009.[4] The group's music can be heard on underground and independent radio and internet based broadcasts, such as WFMU Radio in the New York City area,[5] KDVS Freeform Radio out of Davis, California,[6] and the Satanic Church Radio's internet broadcast[7] in San Francisco.
