The GrimFlock

So many jobs to do for each show, How did you do it?

Grimlock had some of the most loyal followers and helpers. Without them Grimlock never would have had the success that it did. Rusty Lamkin, David Longcamp, BJ Sykes, Steve Williams, Jason Gipson, John Althoff, Allen Oppelt, Jeff Higgins, and the entire Smith family were integral in getting the job done. They helped in every aspect, from getting to the show to having a place to practice. The above mentioned made sure it happened.

Why haven’t I seen this?

John Althoff created this image for the 3 song demo nicknamed Grim Village. Grim Village sort of stuck and the art lay packed away for more than 25 years only to be made into a super bad ass Grimlock Tee Shirt.
