Another unsigned band working hard is Sh Sh Sh Shark Attack. With a sound stemming from their love of early rock & roll, punk and post punk, they describe their music as danceable rock & roll. Having played all over the city, including a residency at Club Midway, they now prefer non-traditional venues because of the closer connection with audience members. After their first self-released CD hit in 2006, the four-piece is currently recording a new album, on cassette in mono, with hopes for a summer vinyl release. “Living and working in NYC makes for a very compressed sense of time because everything happens so quickly,” says bassist Ben Brunnemer. “We play a lot of shows, and in a lot of cases for a similar audience, so we are always trying to write new material or improve on our show in some way.” Having already shared the stage with musicians like A.R.E. Weapons, The Virgins, Beans, and the Mod Rockets, this band is definitely on the up and up in 2008. - Grand Life Magazine


Combining the most experimental elements of 80s radio and the clean guitar punch of Dick Dale, their sound begs for a spot on a Tarantino soundtrack and will have you scratching your head in disbelief and tapping your foot at the same time! Didn't think you could do that, did you?" Joseph Coscarelli - the deli magazine - Deli Magazine


.. their mishmash of surf guitar and the bizarre, carnival-esque feel of '50s cult classics escapes mere novelty. Perhaps it's born from their reliance on proto-punk propulsion and choruses occasionally reminiscent of the early-'80s California hardcore, producing songs that are arty without ever succumbing to pretension, and, perhaps most importantly, really, really fun."

...They'll grow on you like coral. Look out behind you, Sh Sh Sh Shark Attack are on the prowl and will deliver a dancable mix of darkened surf rock for just about any fan of dancable garage rock will enjoy." - MG Hussie Skunk web zine

You can't say other bands haven't tried to dissolve the boundry between the action and the audience. if that were the case, what did hardcore have to offer? But Sh- Sh- Sh- Shark Attack!... is recycling and refusing to present the notion of audience inclusion in any light other then there own. Unlike hardcore, Sh- Sh- Sh- Shark Attack1 dosen't give their fans a good show by way of physical altercations, but rather invites them to join in on their blissed-out vibe via a smile and a nod to surf rock. The self-proclaimed nerdy dudes turned bad-ass rockers are generating a sound that's somewere between an angry Frankie Avalon and a Croation counterpart to Tom Verlaine, and the Kids at their shows can't stop dancing about it."

Bio

www.shshshsharkattack.com

Based on Rivington St. in the LES of Manhattan, Sh-Sh-Sh Shark Attack formed as a two piece surf punk band in 2005. Over the last few years, vocalist and bassist added, their sound has taken on new and varied influences, and has been likened to "a fucked up version of the B-52's". Sporting a high energy, highly danceable performance, their draw has come to expect a show that is raw, unpredictable, and perhaps most importantly, a goddamn good time. This comes at no expense to their elegant song writing abilities. As Grandlife Magazine recently put it "This band is definitely on the up and up in 2008!"
