Too much amalgam gives us a headache. But now that the Clash’s Mick Jones tells us “grindie” was so six months ago, we’ll mention it before “Bones” gets an Akira The Don makeover.
BLENDER: So, what are you listening to now of the newer bands?
MICK JONES: Well, I like The Streets. Have you heard Lily Allen? She’s good. I like things like that. I like certain new stuff. The Killers, this new record, I started liking. I wasn’t sure about the last one, but this one I kind of like. They’re all right those guys. There’s loads of bands in England ? the Paddingtons, the Holloways, the Kooks. Just so many groups. There’s a lot of groups that have come out of that since the Libertines, post-Libertines type. In England ? and London especially ? we have some new subgenre every couple of weeks. It’s new wave this week, and it was emo last week ? or ‘grindie’ a couple of weeks before that, which is a mixture of grime, which is like kind of heavy, dire music, and indie, so it’s called ‘grindie.’ It’s an amalgam.
NME says Marvin The Martian’s remix of Art Brut’s “Emily Kane” was the first ever grindie track. You can hear it on his mixtape:
Jack Nimble Scratch Intro

Reymell Feat. Audrey II (Little Shop Of Horrors)

Sampling an animatronic Venus Fly Trap? We can’t hate on that.
