what’s in a name?

What is a gremmie? Our name comes from the title of a surfabilly song called, “Gremmie Out of Control”, originally written by a band called The Silly Surfers. Pearl Jam covered the song on Music for Our Mother Ocean, a compilation LP whose proceeds benefitted the Surfrider Foundation. You can find the track in the “b-sides” section of gremmie.net.

Ok, so why “gremmie”? Well, goof & gremmie met at the tail end of their Freshman year in college, 1998. Within a week they formed a band which they named after the song playing on Winamp at that moment. The name stuck.  Over the years the name came to embody their friendship.
