Grabbitz ~ The Ugly

Nicholas Chiari (aka Grabbitz) is a non-stop merry-go-round of catchy wonderous electro-pop sights and sounds that never fails to impress.

This stream-of-bloody-consciousness song and video should serve to remind that angry high-energy music serves its own purpose. PIL frontman Johnny Rotten once said “anger is an energy” — indeed it is and it can be channeled … Continue reading Sure – Precious Words
