Grandaddy, from beyond the grave: Jason Lytle talks

Mike Diver, Drowned in Sound, 28 June 2006

PERHAPS WE should have seen it coming: the official "it's over" announcement was a way off yet, but Grandaddy's penultimate release (excluding singles), Excerpts From The Diary Of Todd Zilla, ended with the song 'Goodbye?'. The credits, too, suggested to even the fair-weather fan that not all was well in the Grandaddy camp: most of the instruments on the record were played by just one man, singer Jason Lytle.

Total word count of piece: 1660
