Jason Griffin is not worried about maintaining his singing voice. “I hate my voice,” he says. “The only thing I do is soak [my vocal chords] in beer.”

Approaching the 20-year mark of playing music in Athens and a veteran of punk bands such as No!, American Cheeseburger and Shaved Christ (with whom he still plays), Griffin recently founded Harsh Words with Gripe vets guitarist Tom Needham and bassist Brandon Goss. In the group, he plays drums and returns to singing for the first time since fronting Tres Kids, a band Griffin started when he moved to Athens in 1995.
