Feeling a bit camera shy


A lot of bands these days go on about how "the drummer contributes too!" but they still place the person who writes all the lyrics front and centre in all promotional material, making sure the bassist is right up the back and out of focus.

Stoner rock is a genre based not around smoking weed but loud and heavy riffs that groove in a euphoric manner, entrancing the audience for 45 minute intervals. The beauty of the genre is that all band members are given equal chance to shine as it intertwines experimentation and improvisation into otherwise standard radio pop song structures ensuring the listener is regularly caught off guard.

Shellfin embodies all this and more as evident by their continued, and rapid growth throughout the Brisbane heavy music scene. Guitarist Josh Bliesner (Western Decay) joined forces with James Geekie (Defamer) as a way to salute the greatest stoner rock band, Kyuss. After realising that this was more than a derivative band, they recruited Mary Jane on bass (a.k.a. Cat Andrews - Flowers For Lily) and 'Some Dude' who always happens to be at the gigs to sing.
