Hallo all, I'm a new member. I saw The Grates at Big Day Out and they were completely amazing, prompting me to download as much as possible. I now have Croc EP, The Ouch The Touch, and the album, which I've quickly become obsessed with.
A few questions:
1) WHY is The Metro for over eighteens only?! I saw that The Grates were on in the newspaper and was all ready to go book when I realised The Metro didn't do underaged people. It's a conspiracy or something.
2) Does anyone know why The Grates have in their links section This? It confused the heck out of me.
3) I'm hooked on The Grates message boards. So far I'm lurking, but I was just wondering if anyone else from LJ was on there.

Hello :] First post.
Maybe I'm behind, but according to The Brag, The Grates are supporting the Arctic Monkeys in August.
I am. And I'm excited as a fox!

|gumbuoy||09:55 am - Album thoughts...|
The album came out this past weekend, does anyone have it? (I'll be getting it this evening) If so, thoughts? Favourite tracks?
What do people think about them redoing Sukkafish and Trampoline? I hated End Of Fashion when they rerecorded old tracks for their album, but it sounds like the Grates might have added some different elements to their rerecordings...
