about

Looks are important to Glam Rockers. Listening to the Grande Machine’s nosebleed-level maximum energy glam slam, you might expect them to look like an explosion in a leopard-print fabric factory that has been doused with mascara. Amazingly, the pictures make them look like four guys from your IT department playing at a wedding, which, in a way, is far more intriguing than if they’d just come straight from Motley Crue school. A lot of the initial reviews have little variation on “Slade meet the New York Dolls….” and we’re going to go with the flow here and sing along with that particular chorus. Songs like Wild in the Street and All the Love are timeless glam nuggets that would have done everyone from The Stooges in 73 or The Dictators in 77, or The Wildhearts in 91 or The Hellacopters yesterday proud. One listen to this and you know that one day this band will play the best gig you’ll ever see.

The Grande Machine Minneapolis, Minnesota

"Glam without the eyeliner"--Classic Rock Magazine

In 2008 a band came together consisting of four veterans of the Minnesota Rock scene to began playing bombastic, huge rock and roll. Though times change and members have come and gone, the Machine rolls on strong!!

Think MC5 and The New York Dolls drinking with Kiss and Bruce Springsteen and arguing about the Dead Boys, the Ramones, and Slade.

Track Name: Sweet Tea
She's drinking sweet tea and it's hot outside
Barbecue chicken and paper plates inside
Looking pretty good in her flower dress
Sock it to me baby I expect no less

Sure a lot of love

She's got a habit and it's coming on strong
Pull the shades down I'll sing you a new song
A little tiny taste is all I need
Come on sugar, shake that thing for me

Sure a lot of love

She's drinking sweet tea and it's hot outside
Barbecue chicken and paper plates inside
Looking pretty good in her flower dress
Sock it to me baby I expect no less

Sure a lot of love
And I'm gonna get me some
Track Name: Generation
The greatest minds of my generation
The greatest minds of my generation
The greatest minds of my generation

They all say me
