Grand National

As Grand National, the duo of Rupert Lyddon and Lawrence Rudd combines the electro-pop of bands like New Order and Depeche Mode with sweet harmonies and laid-back grooves. The two first met in a Police tribute band based out of London. Rupert eventually became friends with the band Primal Scream and was offered some free studio time from the group. Whenever the Scream weren't actively working on their upcoming XTRMNTR album, Lyddon and Rudd were busy recording their own tunes and becoming Grand National. They made their debut in 2003 with the self-explanatory EP1 featuring key track "Playing in the Distance," a NME pick for Single of the Week. The debut full-length, Kicking the National Habit, arrived a year later, earning positive reviews that nostalgically mentioned bands like Duran Duran, Talk Talk, and A.R. Kane. They were soon being hired for remix work by the likes of Snow Patrol and Client and having their own work remixed by the likes of Sasha and the Glimmers. A 2006 American re-release of their debut album featured the Sasha and Glimmers remixes, which would also appear on the 2007 collection B-Sides, Remixes & Rarities. That year their second album, A Drink and a Quick Decision, was released, first as a digital download and then as a physical CD with bonus tracks. ~ David Jeffries, Rovi

If you wanna here more from the band you got to Pay the man...
As they Pound the Beats into my Head it feels Good!
MUST READ THIS!!!!!! I'd jut like to say to all of you posting these comments saying your going to die or date your crush are not true. You will not actually die or fall in love. Trust me, I've read one and never posted it. Someone just started it to freak people out. So can you please just chill out and stop? Repost to get word around.

Great music!

Great to listen to, thanks very much
This is a true trance state. These songs really hit it especially Sasha's mix. reminds me of early DM on Broken Frame with the Moog sounds pumpin out. Very strong without being aggro. I hope to hear more from this band.
Guess they disappeared with their second album. Is it worth finding?
That is the sexiest album cover I have seen in a long time! These guys are alright!
LOVE the remix version of "Talk Amongst Yourselves". Search for it!
they sound like Grand National to me :-)

It's disco rock! I hear the Bee Gees...but with testicles.

ME!!! I hear the Steve Miller Band in these guys, its weird, entirely different band, but sort of similar sounds.

This is a great album! I heard 'Take Amongst Yourselves' and 'Drink to Moving On' at a bar I frequented about 3 years ago. I like the songs so much I asked the bartender to make me a mixed CD. Never got the name of the artist.

It wasn't until I played 'Electric Feel Radio' that I came across the band. I was ecstatically surprised! 'Peanut Dreams' is a great song too.

Another Pandora gem. I love this band! I bought Kicking The National Habit and can't stop listening to it. Great drums, sweet vocals and strangely easy to dance to, even for a cracker like me. Peanut Dreams...my favorite!!!
This band is literally outstanding. I don't know if they just came to me at the right point in life, or they are just THAT good, but I can say that I never get sick of their first album. The second, A Drink and a Quick Decision is pretty good, but the first is literally outstanding. So mellow and drifty, but also energetic and hopeful. The only way I can describe a lot of their songs is hauntingly fantastic.
They sound like that Blue October song: Into the Ocean

Has a Peter Gabriel feel to it.
Yea, what is with those legs? My official stand: They'll always gross me out.
ur twisted Sidro Steel, they scare me :(
I like em.
agreed - awesome new band, great sound. have to say somethin 'bout those legs though, they're wicked, they looks dead.
one of my new favorite bands...
Love IT!
They're kool...
just heard talk amonst yourselves. great song, cant wait to hear more.
Max, Max, Max! Awesomely mellow and drifty IN A KICK-A** KIND OF WAY!!! Shall we say F3 on the Fujita scale????
awesomely mellow and drifty...
