the gran jury
I don't know about you, but life as a music reviewer can be a lonely job. Without having another reviewer to bounce ideas off, the whole thing can become overwhelming and sometimes tedious. So, in an effort to save our sanity, we've invited six completely made up, sometimes feisty Grans to help us with our workload. All of our Grans are big fans of new indie music and love getting together for an afternoon's chat, accompanied by a nice cup of tea, slice of cake and a playlist of all the best unsigned artists.
Follow the Grans on Twitter... they're a cheeky bunch! (and they don't smell of cabbage)
