Hello Goodbye: The story of Black Grape and Shaun Ryder in MOJO 
The tailpiece of the September 2005 edition of MOJO magazine is a concise and amusing history of Black Grape by Shaun Ryder (as told to Ben Machell). Among the delights, Shaun explains how Black Grape got started: "[February 1993] After the Mondays split, I told everyone I was leaving the music business. The rest of the band was saying anything to get into the music papers. Me and Bez just kept our mouths shut, and within a day of the Mondays finishing, we got together with Kermit and a couple of others round my house in Didsbury and started jamming in my living room."
