Grandaddy Retired & Drawing Pension

Geoff Trainor

It was reported on the 27th (of this month) that indie rock favourites Grandaddy are calling it quits. I'm not sure how this information took so long to reach me, especially since I am partly to blame. You see, as a member of Mocking Music, I hold a lot of resposibility. Which music I buy can make or break an artist.

Jason Lytle, frontman, revealed the split to NME,

"The realistic part is it hasn't proved to be a huge money-making venture for a lot of guys in the band. We've been doing this for a long time and you have to ask yourself 'Why am I beating myself up like this?'...week after week, month after month, year after year".

Really, I was gonna buy a Grandaddy album! I was! I never got around to it, and just listened to mp3s when I felt like some Grandaddy. Sorry guys, I let you down. Casey did his part, which helped keep you afloat, but an indie band needs at least two Mocking Music members to purchase their album to really put them into stardom.

In all seriousness, this is depressing news. Always hard to lose a great band like Grandaddy. Fortunately they will be going out with one last hurrah! "Just Like The Fambly Cat" will be released as the group's final album. No tours or farewell shows are planned. Lytle still intends on making music, but he is unsure as to what his future in music will be.

Do you know the maple mesos? It is very interesting and if you have enough mesos,you can be strong. So i often go to play the game to get more and more cheap mesos, sometimes i can get the maplestory mesos from my friends who i know in the game. However i like the game very much because of the maple story mesos, i want to play the game more often.
