Glam rock (also known as glitter rock) is a style of rock and pop music that developed in the United Kingdom in the early 1970s, which was performed by singers and musicians who wore outrageous clothes, makeup and hairstyles, particularly platform-soled boots and glitter. The flamboyant costumes and visual styles of glam performers were often camp or androgynous, and have been connected with new views of gender roles.
Grim came alive in May 2008, Alex (guitar and vocals), Rob (bass) and Mark (drums) were longtime friends, and after a meeting they decided to work together on the Grim project.

Johan “Joe” Vegna, who produced the upcoming EP, sniffed out the band via Soundcloud and got hooked by the simple, dirty but melodic songs. Punk attitude with a raw rock tone. “Dirt rock” as the band themselves likes to call it.

1989’s We May Not Be American But We Still **ck is the debut (and only) release from European sleaze rockers B!tch’s Brue. This is your basic sleazy hair metal album with a raspy female vocalist. Think Smashed Gladys, only sloppier, with a Pretty Boy Floyd image. In fact, it’s pretty obvious the band spent more time worrying about that image than they did learning to play instruments or writing halfway decent songs. This is amateur sleaze rock all the way.
