MP3 Grubstake - Make An Animal Noise
"Post-punk from Philly sounds like the Talking Heads, Thin Lizzy, with Minutemen style fast driven riffs, and Pixies-esque vocal harmonies. Great Stuff." - Jake Rabid, Y-Rock on XPN, 88.5 fm

"Named for an arcane mining term, Grubstake have been hammering out mud–caked guitar–drum blues for about a decade now. Patrick McHugh led the band in Boston for much of that time before returning to his old stomping grounds in Philly and nabbing drummer/engineer Steve Bozzone to make a fifth album, Make An Animal Noise. It’s another gritty, ground–down outing, with McHugh hollering about TV dinners and other mundane miseries on ''Delaware'' and trafficking heavily in spite on ''Sophisticated Whore.'' Most garage–rock duos putter out when they cease to mix things up musically, but McHugh’s been around long enough to know when to throw a wrench into the works."
