"He moans vocally and wordlessly into an echo chamber with sinister intent; his guitar throws out shapeless strums and aimless riffs like a baboon casting coconuts from a tree; and percussion effects stumble blindly about the room like a hooded goblin."
Ed Pinsent - The Sound Projector
"!!! Mysterious Norwegian Melty Man Fall-Down-The-Stairs skronk industrial meltdown"
"Showcasing his chamaleonesque stylistic choices in guitar performance and noise experimentation, Granli evokes material hailing from Gregorian Chant to Beefheart seamlessly in only a handful of tracks. An almost inconscient yet humongous industrial finger print bridges his sonic potpurri together; the bridges collapse inevitably after his aural explosion."

GAUTE GRANLI is the guitarist in Skadne Krek and Freddy The Dyke. With his solo project he explores a range of abstract and bizarre territories. He combines chanting, guitar, a range of effects with analog sampling and creates a dark and industrial sound. The music is freely improvised as well as composed. His second solo tape: Ingen Potetsekk Whatsoever was released in march 2015 on Skussmaal. Drid Machine Records has also released a split vinyl with Gaute Granli and Clifford Torus available here
