Watch the official music video for “Police Department Theme Song” by Electric Grandmother on YouTube:
On the band’s website, Pete Faust explains the origin of the band and his tunes with his wife, Mary Alice Hamnett.
The Electric Grandmother began in December 1999 in Hawaii as a solo bedroom project of mine. I had been telling my future wife/bandmate Mary Alice that “The Electric Grandmother” would be a good name for a band, and she suggested that I adopt the moniker. I recorded mountains of songs using an old keyboard I got for my birthday when I was about 11 or 12. I recorded several cassettes of incredibly lo-fi sounding songs in the same vein of my old band The Doldrums, focusing on minimalist sound and the subject of TV sitcoms from the 80’s and 90’s.
