Nick Cave declared on stage “That’s it for Grinderman. It’s over” – bringing to an end a fairly short stint that included two albums.
In light of the recent split, Last.fm Trends looks at the band’s scrobbles.
The garage rockers have been scrobbled a total of 3,674,466 times since their inception, with “Palaces Of Montezuma”, from Grinderman 2, being their most popular track with 145,842 scrobbles.
Despite this, Grinderman 2 hasn’t been able to overcome the popularity seen in debut album Grinderman, which has been scrobbled 1,826,213 times (not much more than Grinderman 2 considering it being released three and a half years earlier).
Their scrobbles over the last twelve months have seen a gradual decline, dropping from 30,000 weekly scrobbles to around 12,000. However it’s a possibility that this will soon rise again as fans start to hear of the news of the split.
