If I open the in-box on my laptop, there are daily dozens mails of some agencies who offer new music which I should promote. Like Jim I extinguish the large part of all e-mails because I do not have the time to listen to everything. Now and then I cannot resist, nevertheless to have a look at an offer. In this way I have bumped into Shame. Shame is a Bristol based band with a heritage stretching for The Clash to Fat White family and beyond. It is an area long-marked by diversity, political unrest, squat culture and more recently, gentrification, giving iit an infamous reputation as a creative hub and a kind of haven for misfits like someone said about them in the internet. For me it is an example of a young band knowing their roots in post punk, learning much from Gang of Four and giving me some jittery and fury guitars on a solid rhythm base. The best new band I listened to for longer times.
