Desmond Grundy (Des Mondo)
This hooky, indie, guitar music is
seeded in the creatively structured 4/4 song styles of the
British Rock and R&B invasion.
These tunes about traveling,
justice and ineffable love on a planetary scale weave
flashbacks, lyrical déja-vu and blank reality into waves of
wall-battering chord patterns, leads and harmonies. This
refreshingly original work has dug a niche into a mountainside
of songwriting giants like Iggy, Dylan, the Velvets and the
Kinks. Unique versions of the gems in their back catalogues keep
performances fresh and interesting.
Grundy grinds freshly
harvested guitar songs into quality blends of technology fuelled
musical expressions. The first track on Tiles From the Amber
Room, 'Something Good Comes Along', is one of the Top Ten Songs
a indierockcafe.com. 'Not Me, New York Times,' from Oddly
Enough, won an honourable mention in the American Songwriting
Contest. With publishing opportunities in the US, Canada and
Europe (SOCAN), DES MONDO is preparing shows for next year to
promote a new record.
Lead singer and songwriter, Desmond
Grundy, has a uniquely accessible creative
signature—recognizable without the usual boilerplate. His
studied musical influences end where his own full-blown stab at
real artistic genius begins—omewhere between 1977 and now. More

About the Album: This is my second album of
songs. I still believe very much in the album concept. I wrote
all these songs together while under heavy pressure to complete
the build on my house. I was also touring at the time, locally.
Each song is a labour of love and some of these I feel are real
gems. I hope you like it. If you do, I'd be pleased to send
along a copy of my first record, Oddly Enough. cheers, D.
