Trailer Trash Orchestra front-man Grae J Wall also records and performs solo and with the moveable musical feast dubbed Los Chicos Muertos (usually made up from other Trailer Trash Orchestra compadres and/or special guests).

These outings mix up country, blues, folk and chanson with a particular penchant for murder ballads, caustic skiffle and bar room melancholy. Grae J regularly tours on the continent as well as being a stalwart of the UK Acoustica scene (previous band The Young Trash Lovers were the last ever act to perform at the legendary Bunjies Coffee House).

As an eternal troubadour Grae J's songs are also often inspired by his road trips, with narratives set in the motels of Bakersfield, the bar-rooms of Berlin and the back-streets of Paris.

Grae J and Los Chicos Muertos have shared the stage with inspirational characters including TV Smith, Patrik Fitzgerald, John Cooper Clarke and Jowe Head. As well as Trashville releases (available at The Local Store) Grae J has contributed tracks to a number of compilation albums including tributes to Kevin Coyne and a self produced tribute to Nikki Sudden (whom he shared a beer with a few times in Berlin).

Los Chicos Muertos have been described as "Calexico meets Tarantino" ­ Hunter S. Thomson meets Jim Jarmusch might be more accurate.
