Shellac is more likely to play Reykjavik than Detroit, and more likely to release songs on flexi-discs in Dutch comic books than provide MP3s on their website, Shellac (or Shellac of North America) will always be known for doing it their way. That’s what the guys write about themselves on their myspace-page. Producer and guitarist Steve Albini, drummer Todd Trainer and bassist Bob Weston have carved out a sizable niche in the sewage-infested gutters of underground rock & roll. As with Big Black, Shellac provides a forum for Albini to air his thoughts on the uglier side of humanity, though lowering the perversity and upping the humour a notch. An early claim was that all Shellac songs concerned either baseball or Canada, sometimes both in the same song… Always featuring a raw sound, the band's recordings rarely (if ever) employed overdubs. Economy and precision were always at the top of the priority list. Shellac tours at a sporadic pace, usually in geographic locations they want to visit, and frequently playing in unconventional confines such as riverboats... Well, the A is proud to host them in a proper venue in Luxembourg.
