Bands I Like: Shook Ones

Shook Ones, for the uninitiated, are a melodic hardcore band from Seattle, Washington. Their debut LP, Sixteen, had some serious Kid Dynamite aping going on, without a doubt, but it was a really solid effort regardless. The more I listened to Sixteen though, the more I found it kind of ran together for me. It ended up being finished before I even realized it, most times.

In the beginning of 2006, they released a 7" called Slaughter of the Insole (what a great fucking title!) and towards the last quarter of the year, the band dropped their 2nd LP, Facetious Folly Feat. While ...Insole skewed their sound in a bit more of a melodic direction, Facetious Folly Feat dove headfirst into Lifetime/Jawbreaker land. All the songs on the record have a much more unique feel than anything on Sixteen ever did.

In addition, the band recently released a split on Alliance Trax with Easel, who you should definitely check out as well. For me, this will probably be the best split since Western Addiction and New Mexican Disaster Squad shared a release!

Hopefully all three of you reading this enjoy Shook Ones! Make sure you check out Easel too!
