The Grassy Knoll, Bob Green’s personal musical conspiracy, has been purveying uniquely potent instrumental-rock abstraction since 1993. His early albums, 1994's untitled debut, 1996's "Positive", and 1998's "III" were premonitions of the music-future as well as critically acclaimed recordings. These snapshots were a full, ahead-of-the-curve exposure of the loop-based sonic collages taken for granted today. Fully engaging all your senses, the Grassy Knoll is in-the-moment rock music with an inclusive sense of both the past and the future. This is sampling that changes everything.

The Grassy Knoll says more through sound and music than other groups might say in a 40 page manifesto... this is radical stuff that changes everything. - CMJ
"III" may prove to be one of the most groundbreaking and futuristic albums of the year. - Ezra Gale, Salon
If Tricky is the supposed master of trip-hop...then the Grassy Knoll is the lesser known, even more inventive little brother - The Oregonian
"III" is the true audiophile's wet dream. I'll recommend this CD to anybody, all ages, all backgrounds. If you don't "get" the Grassy Knoll, you don't "get" anything. - Charles D.J. Deppner, Ink 19
The Grassy Knoll aren't playing what fusion jazz sounded like in the early '70s but what it should sound like now: bristling with broken hip-hop breaks, Money Mark- like Hammond B-3 fills, dark ambient, post-rock (particularly Cul du Sac), heavy noise, and lo-fi distortion crackles. - Brent S. Sirota, Pitchfork
The key is meaning, man. Ten years ago, the Grassy Knoll’s majestic sample feasts made the so-called pioneers of trip-hop look like shallow actors in need of a subtext. A decade later, his avant-video artistry makes most VJs look like kids with Spirographs. - James Rotondi, Editor-in-Chief, Guitar World’s Bass Guitar Magazine
"Music You Haven't Heard Yet" was the mantra for The Grassy Knoll's label Verve / Antilles.
