Yep, they're covering Stereolab

Toronto's music scene is almost literally overflowing with fantastic talent.

Simply put: if you threw a coin up in the air in Grand Electric then it would probably be caught by someone in a band. Or a rapper. Or a bedroom producer. Or...

You get the picture. Greys hail from Toronto and the band are more than a little bit fantastic. Debut album 'If Anything' emerged recently via Carpark Records, and it kicked like a mule.

Unafraid to rock, the Canadian group also throw plenty of acerbic, off kilter ideas into the mix. Arranging a series of European shows, Greys have also handed Clash a special cover version.

'The Noise Of Carpet' is a track cult by British group Stereolab. Removing the self-conscious experimentalism, the Canadian band retain the essential motorik groove but add plenty of NOIZE.

Check it out.

Greys have confirmed the following UK shows:

20 London Electric Ballroom **
21 Manchester Gorilla **
22 Glasgow The Garage **
25 Bristol Simple Things Festival
27 Brighton The Hope
28 Leeds Brudenell Social Club
29 London 100 Club
