Cork’s The Grey Merchant give us another whopper of a single with 'Convenience'. Sounding like The Butthole Surfers covering Motorhead, Neon Atlas’ bassist Enda O’Flaherty and a collection of friends and fellow musicians release deliver a third single release which goes on sale May 31 on Spotify, iTunes, and the usual digital platforms.
The Grey Merchant have drawn comparisons with classic noise and stoner rock, influences like Kyuss and Fu Manchu can be heard. ‘Convenience’ is the follow up to their earlier single releases ‘Spotless (The Protecting Veil)’ and ‘The Last Transmission’, and sets the tone for their forth-coming album Avenue De Rennes expected in late July this year. The latter track is a quality tune; an old-fashioned rocker dressed in new clothes and taken to new places, something it shares with this new song.
