"cd review for Shellshocked vs. the Regime"

How can you not love a band that has a song titled, “If Yr Books Lie, Then Quit Reading the Wrong Books.�? “Books� is one of only five songs on this homemade EP that burns with the fire of the early punk sound – the time when garage rock spilled out into the street and decided that there were more things to sing (complain!) about than unfaithful lovers and car wrecks. “Soft Targets + Bargaining Chips� is delivered with a Clash-like fervor; it sounds like something that Strummer and Jones might have reeled off in pre-stardom days while sloppy drunk. That might be a good way to listen to it also, but vs. the Regime supplies its own intoxicating fun. When bass player Oraia takes the mic to sing “Insurrexionist,� she takes the song on a tour that visits Romeo Void tease and Shark Pants “piss off,� all tied up in a neat package of Patti Smith cool. The recording quality of this effort could be a lot better, but by the same token Shellshocked have a good sound that hopefully won’t get too slicked-up when they do their full-length. - Altar Magazine

"live review Shellshocked"

"[shellshocked] were quite good. the lead singer is reminiscent of Tim Harrington's wild style, and i instantly fell in tune with him. he jumped on the bar. he jumped on the counter. he jumped on chairs. he jumped into the crowd. i was fully enthralled and entertained. watch out for this band! they really know how to get the party up in arms." -

"live review Shellshocked"

Don from X the Owl is [Shellshocked's] lead singer this time around, and damn if he isn't one of the best frontperson I've ever seen. Oraia (of BABNYC fame) plays bass (incredibly, at that), but she swapped with Don for one song and took over lead vocals, and I was blown away...Sam (x-Colossus) sang and I could tell he's got it in him too. How often do you find a punk band with not only one, but two or 3 amazing lead singers? This band is full of energy, enthusiasm, passion, and pure raw talent that I can't wait to see where they go.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Shellshocked first met in a small Brooklyn basement in August 2003. Discovering mutual inspiration in the sounds (and ideals) of early hardcore punk, indie rock and political activism, the members joined forces on this side of the good fight.

2004 saw Shellshocked playing almost 30 shows, including a week long west coast tour where they rallied the kids to put their apathy aside all the way from a 4th of July protest party in a warehouse in Seattle, to rocking and registering voters at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood.

Shellshocked is touring the Midwest in the Spring 2005 and will be back in Brooklyn to start recording their full length album at Serious Business (Man in Gray, Professor Murder, Unsacred Hearts) in May.

Shellshocked has been described as, "full of energy, enthusiasm, passion, and pure raw talent" and having a "sexual rebel roar".

Shellshocked has shared the stage with The King Cobra, Lesbians on Ecstasy, The Coastal Drag, Man In Gray, Teenage Harlets and Shellshag to name a few.

Crafting a sound all their own, yet compared to a mix of The Avengers with The Clash, Black Flag with Bikini Kill, Shellshocked heralds a fierce message for the masses.
