five piece lo-fi
, indie band
from the relatively small town of Modesto

, Grandaddy primarily seem to produce songs with a theme of technology

To date, their major releases have been:
The band tour
regularly which is something I am fortunate
to have experienced
several times so far..
of their tours; a full discography
as well as a forum
can be found on their (recently redesigned
) web site www.grandaddylandscape.com
which is maintained

Latest news as of the end of 2003 is that there have been a relatively large number of singles released from Sumday.. due to Grandaddy's increasingly wider popularity, or is it because V2 want more cash?
Anyway, the band themselves have just finished a five-week Winter tour, and will most likely be resting for some time considering their extensive tour schedule this year.
Final update: The band split up in January 2006 and released their final album Just Like the Fambly Cat in May of that year. No tour followed.
