Record Of The Month - April 2000
The Satelliters - Shake, Shake, Shake! (Dionysus)
I've been listening to this disc over and over the last few months. The Satelliters have done a bunch of longplayers for Dionysus, and a couple for Pin Up in Germany. The first 7" I saw from them said something about the Makers being their heroes, and that definitely works as a comparison. The Satelliters have the same snotty teen garage punk type vocal style, and the melodies underneath really hit the spot for me. Most tunes are dominated by a hard fuzztone guitar, often with a farfisa rhythm line that the lead singer plays. Great listening when you get home from work with a little attitude to burn off. They also throw in a semi-surfy instro here and then, with titles like Sasquatch.
