SHANGHAI WIRES "Black Waves" LP
Finally out now the long-awaited second full-lenght album from Shanghai Wires. Formed in London in 2007 and featuring members of The Gaggers, Teenage Tricks, Disco Lepers and The Botox Rats, ‘Black Waves' features 11 cuts that take direct influence from the classic English 1977 style and further inspiration from the American take on this traditional English sound with the result being a kind of English Beach Punk sound (not fucking Blackpool beach). So, fans of The Stitches, listen up! Did you spend the mid- to late-‘90s scarfing up every 7” release from Witmer/Lohrman and company like it was gold? Then Shanghai Wires are the band for you. They may be from England, but they have clearly soaked up the vintage Southern California Punk Rock vinyl so much that it courses through their veins as much as any of their native country’s fine bands do. Limited to 300 copies!
