The most recent excursion of Steve Albini (produced Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Pixies records), a viscerally raw punk/rock band.

One of my favourite bands at the moment - totally hypnotic and aggressive.

Anyone heard them? If so what did you think?

Yeah excellent band. I'm a big fan of Steve Albini's bands and Shellac are no exception.

Though Big Black were the best

^ No way, no one can beat Shellac.
Quote by Mia (Pulp Fiction)
Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

I think Big Black are pretty damn good, but Shellac definitely benefit from the drums - probably my favourite drum parts in any modern band.

Has anyone heard of his project before Big Black, they were called Rapeman? I can't get my hands on any of their cds but in interviews Albini says he likes what he did with them.

Rapeman was after big black and had members of jesus lizard I believe. I'm pretty sure insound and amazon have their album. It's called 'Two Nuns and a Packmule."

Shellac Destroy. Saw them last summer. Listen to Uzeda, Italy's shellac.
