In February 2006, the four musicians that are Grinderman booked themselves into London's Metropolis Studios for a five-day marathon of non-stop demo sessions, resulting in several hours of raw material.
In April 2006, Grinderman entered RAK studios, London, for a week with producer Nick Launay. They re-worked the raw material into thirteen songs, returning to Metropolis in October to mix them.
Warren: "It was meant to be really open liberating thing. We went to places we would not normally go… and then tried to push it even further…"
Marty: "Having Nick on the guitar changes the whole dynamic.
Warren: "Launay gets good sounds down. We didn’t want any obstacles between the band sound and the production, so Launay was perfect."
Jim: "The name Grinderman seemed to suit the band. It sums up the sort of music we are making. We grind."

While everything is quiet and easy
Mr. Grinder can have his way...
