The Grodes, sometimes known as The Tongues of Truth, were a garage rock band from Tucson, Arizona, that featured lead singer and songwriter Manny Freiser, and were active between late 1965 and 1967. They are best remembered for two Manny Freiser written songs, “Cry a Little Longer” and the original version of “Let’s Talk about Girls" (recorded as The Tongues of Truth), later covered by The Chocolate Watchband. Freiser also wrote several songs for fellow Tucson band, The Dearly Beloved. Many of the songs recorded by both The Grodes and The Dearly Beloved are included on the CD compilation Let's Talk About Girls! Music From Tucson 1964-1968.
