The 1990's saw worldwide commercial success as The Grid Scored 10 uk chart hits, many a euro hit including 1994's international mega-hit 'Swamp Thing? featuring a twisted use of sampled banjos lifted from the 1970's okie shocker movie 'Providence. In 1996 The Grid went on a holiday and they didn't return till 2005. in the initial week of The Moog Sound-Lab in early 2015 as the studio was literally put together around them, our abiding memory was their absolutely delighted grins as each Moog unit was added to the lab. Dave & Richard created this benchmark album of deluxe 'tronic trax that showcased their prairie wide knowledge of electronica & their ocean deep skills as both technicians & original soundscapers - Kraftwerk-Ian werk-outs, space noise jams, and slinky grooves with subtle pop-tones. The Tracklisting ? One Way Traffic, Test One, Disturbia, Goldenfilter, ECG, DPM.
