The Shrine's 'Primitive Blast'

The Shrine's 'Primitive Blast'

Certified skater's choice, The Shrine is a long-haired L.A-based three-piece at a border between two flavours of heavy which they define as 'psychedelic violence'; three dudes who go digging into their favourite blasts a la MC5 & Co, 'all-American' R&rR to bring their loud, furious, but mainly OH-SO-SATISFYING fuzz-freak show to a present where clicks disappear for the sake of some messy head-banging antics made of string-shredding prowesses and efx abuse. After a debut 7” (produced by Black Flag bass player Chuck Dukowski) released in 2010, the band dropped a couple of weeks ago (July 10th) a first album, Primitive Blast, a restless trash-punk-something nine-track sample of their range. You can listen to demo versions of those on bandcamp, and purchase the record here. Before they head for Europe with Fu Manchu in September, note that The Shrine will be on stage at The Satellite on August 4th, and headlining a show at The 3 Clubs on August 10th. - Tracy Mamoun
