About Grant Lee Buffalo

Lo-fi cowboys, Grant Lee Buffalo sang surreal, sweetly somnambulic pop songs set further off-kilter by the Neil Young-esque high-toned vocals of Grant Lee Phillips with a dormant, but lingering, lurking anger set to emerge and explode at any moment. Discovered by Bob Mould, who released the sinister-catchy "Fuzzy" as a 7-inch, the group were scooped up by Slash Records, who released the hastily recorded masterpiece FUZZY in 1993. While that album generated mostly a cult buzz, the more polished follow-up MIGHTY JOE MOON captured the attention of radio as "Mockingbirds" was picked up by MTV. After a final album, JUBILEE, yielded the minor pop hit "Truly Truly," Grant Lee Buffalo dissolved, but lead singer Phillips continued to release haunting records through the '00s.
