Nice to discover an interesting new band by accident, as I just did with The Shook-Ups (with a little help of a gig I was sent to plug!)
The band are out of the Liverpool / Wigan area and are made up of ex-members of local bands Moco, The V.C.s, The Stags, Filthy Romance and Doktor Combover. The V.C.s are a band I saw live some time back and were superb. The new band could be just as good. They specialise in noisy (but tuneful) 60s-style garage. If that sounds like your thing, check out the Soundcloud page for a set of tunes, including a nice take on The Magic Touch.
Or see MySpace for upcoming gigs. One of those is flyer’d above, The Go-Go! 11th Birthday Bash on Saturday 7th May. It’s Downstairs @ Studio 24, Calton Road, Edinburgh, with Tall Paul & Big Gus! playing garage, soul, mod, freakbeat and girl group sounds. Admission is £7/5, £3 before 11pm and the band is on at Midnight.
