The Blind Shake

Support: The Kooters
Goner Records (US)
Fri 12.2.16 / 21:00
punk / noise / surf music


EN Fronted by brothers Jim and Mike Blaha, with friend Dave Roper on drums, the trio have been tunneling through the underground since before telephones could talk. Having 6 full length albums to their credit, several singles, three collaborations with psych legend Michael Yonkers and another with downstroke warrior John Reis, the band continues to push the sliding scale between catchy punk songs and pitch red noise.

The Kooters are a young band that re-interpret the psychedelic vibe mixed with a fresh indie touch and a pure youthful energy. The 4 young musicians provide psyched gigs with a lush atmosphere, accessible for dreamers, erratics and other more jittery folk.

FR Fondé par les frères Jim et Mike Blaha et leur ami commun Dave Roper aux fûts, The Blind Shake déboule sur la scène underground en 2005 avec Rizzograph, album ovni au mélange de genres improbable (punk, surf music, noise). Dix albums (dont des collaborations avec Michael Yonkers et Swami John Reis) ont suivi depuis, avec toujours ce même souci de maintenir intact ces mêmes ponts.

En première partie, on retrouve The Kooters, un quatuor qui mélange psychédélisme et indie rock pour un trip énergétique détonnant.

    “The Blind Shake is at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party. One guitar, one baritone guitar, a fuckload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic medal.” –SF Weekly
