1 - BLIND SHAKE, THE - BREAKFAST OF FAILURES - (LP) 
GONER


Minneapolis three-piece The Blind Shake crafts dense, massive locomotive music-powerful sounds with the ability to careen through one cinematic, post-apocalyptic chase scene after another. The bands latest album Breakfast of Failures comes clanging and crashing through these confused times. Fronted by brothers Jim and Mike Blaha along with friend Dave Roper on drums, the trio was tunneling through the underground since before telephones could talk. With six full-length albums to their credit, several singles, three collaborations with psych legend Michael Yonkers and another with downstroke warrior John Reis, The Blind Shake continues to push the sliding scale between catchy punk songs and pitch-red noise. "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.

4 - BLIND SHAKE, THE - CELEBRATE YOUR WORTH - (LP) 
GONER


The Blind Shake, three intense men from Minneapolis creating dense, mystical music: in 1974, Bernie Taupin, feeling on top of the world as Elton Johns "Rocket Man" soared up the charts in 1972, suffered a sudden sense of vertigo outside the Spanish villa where he was vacationing. In a beam of black light he saw and heard the future of the future, a loud vision of The Blind Shake, making music that made Elton Johns "starman as everyman" song seem like so much pastel tissue paper, wet and dissolving in a pretty porcelain toilet. The real deal, Celebrate Your Worth is an intense web of connections of bands and sounds unknown to Taupin, strange sounds from Chrome through Bailter Space through Michael Yonkers and John Reis and with tendrils extending throughout an incredible universe of fantastic unknown bands and sounds. "What the hell am I doing?" Taupin cries, now on his knees, staring at the sky. Witness the Blind Shake in all their mystical, wonderful strangeness and energy.

7 - BLIND SHAKE, THE - FLY RIGHT - (LP) 
SLOVENLY


Slovenly Recordings is hyped as hell to announce our inevitable teaming with Minneapolis, MN bald headed freaks THE BLIND SHAKE. This intense trio led by The Brothers Blaha (Jim and Mike, plus drummer / brother from another Dave Roper) has been plowing through massive waves of reverberation since 2003, releasing a heap of deep records along the way, including a few collaborations with legendary space-punk Michael Yonkers - check his essential "Microminiature Love" collection on De Stijl / Sub Pop for the cold hard truth. Taking a more melodic approach than on previous releases, this 9 cut "Fly Right" 12inch EP is another sonic hurdle for the band, steadily alternating between bold, phaser heavy garage-punk wail ("Tar Paper," "Holy Road"), trippy spaghetti-western tinged surf ("A Clock, A Window, A Pyramid," "Diamond Days") and viscerally dramatic scare tactics (title track "Fly Right"). The Blind Shake has forged a unique concept with their bizarre visual assault, combined with instigating on-stage behavior and a virtually bottomless well of haunting songs that all seem to draw from a specific pinpoint of punk rock twang, and have concocted another hypnotic document for an unworthy world.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Tar Paper 02. A Clock, A Window, A Pyramid 03. Holy Road 04. Apes Live A Life 05. Diamond Days 06. More Land 07. Yellow 08. Fly Right 09. Salt
