They were new. They were grand. They were The New Grand. A four piece outfit who shipped out of London, Ontario in the mid-90s, the New Grand loosely followed in the footsteps of such likeminded, Canuck indie-rock contemporaries as Sloan and Thrush Hermit. After the release of this single, the band would record two excellent, deftly-crafted long players for the Sonic Unyon label, a self-titled set in '96, and a follow-up, Incognito two years thereafter, both of which I can't recommend strongly enough. The b-side, "Ready, Steady, Go," (not the Gen-X song) wound up on their debut album in overhauled from.
