John Grant on Letterman

The former Czars frontman John Grant went to Iceland to record last year’s Pale Green Ghosts, a sneakily powerful album about living with HIV. It flew a bit under the radar, though we did post the excellent disco-house track “Black Belt.” But on last night’s episode of the Late Show With David Letterman, Grant served as musical guest, singing the excoriating country-rock lope “GMF” and forcing Letterman’s censors to bleep the word “motherfucker.” Letterman, as you can imagine, enjoyed this. Watch it below.

Pale Green Ghosts is out now on Partisan.

  1. Here is the same song performed on an Icelandic new year’s eve tv show with Sinéad O’Connor and her daughter on background vocals. No bleeping of the word “motherfucker”.
