This Is Next Year: A Brooklyn Based Compilation
Arena Rock Recording Company 2001
only Grand Mal song featuring the talents of former Primadonna/current
Vietnam cult leader Michael William, “Hey Man”
was recorded during a snowstorm in 2000. This sci-fi epic
of sorts, a curiosity in Grand Mal’s discography and
their last recording for a couple of years, took almost
a week to complete. It appeared on the excellent Arena Rock
Recording Company double CD compilation documenting the
Williamsburg music scene, This
Is Next Year. The Walkmen, Calla, Les
Savy Fav, Interpole, and a number of other great bands also
again we recorded at Dave Fridmann's Tarbox Road Studios.
In exchange for recording the song, Grand Mal moved the
Fridmann family from one house to another (it works out
on an hourly basis to have been a very costly moving job).
