We played this angry, blaring, loud, confrontational music. Sometimes it was kind of mellow too, but it was very minimal, and I thought it was really good. It was like nothing anybody else did

Post punk, experimental art-rock, featuring Jean Michel Basquiat. In downtown New York City, in 1979, painter Jean-Michel Basquiat and performance artist Michael Holman founded their industrial-sound band, Gray. Jean named the band after Gray’s Anatomy, an important reference source for his paintings and the perfect name to capture the haunting, machine-like ambient music the band wrote and performed. Besides Basquiat and Holman, other members of the original group were Nicholas Taylor and Justin Thyme.
