James Curd & The Greenskeepers

James Curd & The Greenskeepers

Greenskeepers top bass-heavy beats with inside jokes, succeeded in taking a satirical home-recording project from the bedroom to the dancefloor before they were old enough to legally drink at a club. James Curd and Nick Maurer took the name Greenskeepers from the fact that they both paid the bills by working as golf course caddies. In their spare time they kept themselves occupied skateboarding the streets of Chicago with Maurer performing as a singer/guitarist for various punk bands while Curd DJ'ed the local scene. 

Several high-profile reviews about the band in the press caught the attention of multi-instrumentalist Mark Share who sat in  to help produce and put the final touches on their first full-length album,The Ziggy Franklin Radio show in 2001. This was followed by Pleetch in 2004.After a two-year world tour their third album,Polo Club, took shape with heavy inspiration from '80s post-punk (especially Gary Numan and Talking Heads) and again featured their usual combination of quirky house music and twisted comedy, supplemented by guitar hooks and their trademark idiosyncratic vocals.
