Long Bio:

 

A Nintendo game-boy addicted punk/ska trumpeter and a chip-tune obsessed jazz pianist got together to give the under-appreciated video game music of their childhoods a severe re-working.

Both of them are huge fans of bands like The Bad Plus, Medeski, Martin and Wood, Panzerballet, Get The Blessing and Polar Bear, but they also drew heavily on their own previous experience; Jeremy Meaden from his punk/ska, rock and soul background in Australia and Northern Ireland with The Resignators and The Vals, Stephen Saunders from his old funk and hip/hop days in inner Melbourne with Debt Collector.

They set about expanding on the original tunes by re-arranging them and adding touches of soul, free improvisation, funk, punk and, of course, jazz. What emerged from the tiny studio in the bush near Daylesford, Victoria was an album of mashed up jazz and video-game theme mayhem and thus, Grand Noise Consortium was born: A 4 piece, funk/punk-spiced jazz tornado from rural Victoria, Australia.
