Grinderswitch was an American southern rock band. They recorded a number of albums for Capricorn Records in the 1970s, but never achieved the same widespread recognition enjoyed by some of the label's other artists, such as The Allman Brothers Band and Marshall Tucker Band. They also recorded for Atlantic. In the UK they are perhaps best known for their recording "Pickin' the Blues", which was used for many years by the disc jockey John Peel as the theme tune for his BBC radio shows.
The nucleus of the band for most of its lifetime consisted of Paul Hornsby (keyboards), Dru Lombar (lead guitar, lead vocals), Joe Dan Petty (bass guitar, vocals), Rick Burnett (drums) and Larry Howard (guitar, vocal). The lineup for their first album was augmented by Dicky Betts (guitar) and Jai Johanny Johanson (congas)
