Shit and Shine

Who are Shit and Shine? A bizarre London/Texas hybrid of weird shit currently causing a stir down London way that’s who.

Shit and Shine is a London-based group formed by both British and USA musicians. Its typical line-up has multipled drummers and guitarists, which is somewhat reminiscent of the Crash Worship and other percussive-oriented post-psychedelic bands. Shit and Shine probably isn't a new name to noise-ophile. Over the course of a few 'proper' albums and underground releases, these Britains have carved out their own niche in the psych/noise genre.

'Four drums and two basses, interwoven in a real tangle of patterns, sounds and explosions. A real sonic catharsis, in an impossible cross between The Cramps and Sunn O))), or between Napalm Death and The Beach Boys. Pure surrealism for your ears. 'Having been lauded as the band of Sonar 2006, and following two sold out releases on Riot Season & Latitudes, Shit and Shine return with their debut album proper ‘Jealous Of Shit And Shine’. Taking a slightly more mature musical stance, ‘Jealous Of Shit And Shine’ is equal parts Strangulated Beatoffs, Butthole Surfers, Merzbow, Melvins and Boredoms - fusing sonic blasts and monster riffs into a hearty brew. Having already gained a cult following due to their legendary one riff / multi-drummer live shows - and from sharing stages with Acid Mothers Temple, Lightning Bolt, Sunn O))) and Earth and more.
