Art Fin This blistering instrumental trio with two distorted guitars and crashing drums reminds me of TJ Kirk, Pell Mell and the Raybeats but is more aggressive sounding and rocks louder than those great groups. I like the raw, live sound of this. Favorite track: Schnapps in Munich.

triode3 Hell to the yes! If the drummer were an English major he would be a Nobel Laureate. If the guitarist were a Physicist he would be Niels Bohr. If the other guitarist were an Engineer he would be William Shockley. Why? Because the drummer throws emotion, the guitarist makes you understand, and the other guitarist invents. This amalgamation of punk, fury and rock will move you to the core of your being, to the very foundational threads of your soul. Get shifted. The vinyl is awesome as well....

about

I think one of the first dozen or so bands I saw upon moving to Atlanta in 1997 was The Purkinje Shift. Within moments of seeing them perform, I was in love. The band fizzled out in 2000 at a final show at the Moreland Avenue Tavern (MoAveTav), and a couple projects popped up afterwards. Moreland Audio and Home of the Wildcats. They were all great, trust me.
Then, more than a few years ago, the guitarists (Ben and Gary, for those keeping notes on such things) decided to start jamming with Lee “Cricket” Corum on skins and The Purkinje Shift was back in operation.
“Threads” is the band’s fourth full length, but their very first to be on 12” vinyl. Recorded by the band in Gary’s basement studio, you’d never think the band has taken a break. Precision. It’s what the Shift is known for.
Edition of 103.
