Willard Grant Conspiracy: Come Together

Nick Hasted, Independent, The, 13 June 2003

The Willard Grant Conspiracy has gone underground. The only way you can hear the new album by one of America's best bands in their home country is to visit a particular bar in Cambridge, Massachusetts, walk up to its jukebox and put in your 25 cents. It suggests the way a secret agent might hide a vital formula in plain sight - not a bad metaphor for the Willard Grant Conspiracy's place in American music right now.
