Black Grape formed in 1993 following the implosion of the Happy Mondays. Taking Bez with him, Shaun Ryder recruited rappers Paul “Kermit” Leveridge and Carl “Pyscho” McCarthy, guitarist Wags, Oli Dirtycash Dillon on ocarina and drummer Ged Lynch.

Their platinum selling debut album It's Great When You're Straight... Yeah went straight to #1 in the UK Album charts upon its release in 1995. The album contained the massive singles Reverend Black Grape, In The Name Of The Father and Kelly’s Heroes.

This was to be followed in 1997 by their second album Stupid Stupid Stupid. The record included the baggy banger single Get Higher.

Black Grape could only have been made in Manchester. The swagger, fun and cryptic humour seem hewn from a city historian AJP Taylor once described as offering an archetypally different way of English urban life to London. Both Shaun Ryder and Paul Leveridge, known as Kermit, came from edgy-but-cool parts of the city. In Shaun’s case Salford, (though I know better than to designate that side of the Irwell as Manchester in certain company) with Kermit originating Moss Side. For those unfamiliar, ‘the Moss’ lay in the shadow of Manchester City’s old stadium at Maine Road, and was one of the first multi-ethnic areas in Manchester. I recall as a youth once going there with a mate to score drugs. This guy had been around, but his customary levity vanished when he warned: “the Moss can get fookin heavy.” We were given the run-around, and eventually the address of this party. So I had gathered that. However, it wasn’t heavy on this particular night as we had terrific fun in the company of a weird and wonderful assortment of friendly strangers. They weren’t hanging back when it came to caning it. It was the type of scene that wouldn’t be unfamiliar to either Shaun or Kermit. (Fuck me, they were probably even there...)” - Irvine Welsch
