Beef Donut - Famous for Quality

Beef Donut is officially releasing a new album, Famous for Quality, March 7 at the Windsor Hotel with The Manic Shakes and Kato Destroy. Beef Donut is the creation of Joel Klaverkamp, the primary mover for Drums and Wires, the Hummers, and Skingerbreadman. You also may have seen him play drums with groups such as Boats or plonk the bass for Grand Analog, Greg Macpherson, and numerous others.

Klaverkamp says in a recent press release that Famous for Quality is his grunge record, with the ultimate goal being "zero novelty and zero pretense". That doesn't mean it sounds like Mudhoney or Nirvana or whatever you think is the epitome of grunge. Sure, you get fuzzy guitars and crashing drums, but there's a pervading sense of playfulness here that your favourite grunge song forgot.
