The Shake-‘Ems really are trying their best. They’re giving it a red hot Kiwi hot go, bless them. They’ve got great energy, and it looks like they’re having fun. Some of them learned to play their instruments before joining this band, and it shows. They’re basically GG Allin copulating with Mike King while playing some early American music. Sort of Dadaist New Orleans, kind of like Wynton Marsalis’ group meeting Mostly Other People Do The Killing after suffering a severe brain trauma, but with a terrible attitude. Sometimes they get shoehorned into using the word “jazz” to describe what they do. Most people know better than that though.
