about

Grand Mal lived and played in New York City. The group began in 1995, its first releases were on №6 Records (an eponymous EP and an album; Pleasure is No Fun). They moved on to Slash/London Records for their 1999 release, Maledictions. In 2003 Grand Mal released Bad Timing, the defining statement of its career. Synthesizing the boogie swagger, punk sneer and classic songwriting of the New York Dolls, Bowie, and Big Star, Grand Mal deployed monster guitar riffs and Nicky Hopkins-esque piano in the service of lead singer/song writer, Bill Whitten’s (formerly of St. Johnny, DGC Records Class of ’94) elliptical, raw and novelistic lyrics. The result was something new, brilliant, immediate — each song was cut as finely as flint, with a beginning and end, a before and after.

Originally released on ArenaRock/Rykodisc, recorded and produced by Dave Fridmann at TarBoxRoad Studios, Bad Timing also includes stellar performances from members of The Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev.

The 2019 release has been remastered by Patrick Klem and features a deluxe package with never before seen photos and extensive liner notes. Included is a bonus track featuring a surprising remix of Disaster Film by KWKA (aka Mike Fridman).
