Album Notes
In its three year existence, Minneapolis band Shamus 73 has played to countless people throughout the Midwest. Named after a Burt Reynolds movie, Shamus 73 is comprised of the Munster BrothersIlluminati member Joe on bass and the handsomely tattooed Johnny on drums; guitarist Matt Potts, the thinking man's rock musician; and lonely vocalist Rodney Lynchand revolves around the songwriting axis of Lynch and Potts. Of their songs one critic said, "These are pop songs of an exquisite quality hard to match by any band in the Twin Cities today." Another wrote "Tag-teaming on lyrics, melodies, and arrangements, the Lynch/Potts consortium produce 3 minute power pop nuggets that pull the listener into simple yet universal themes."

The band lists The Beatles, Richard Thompson, Beach Boys, Tim Hardin, The Flying Burrito Brothers and The Jam as influences. Their sound has been described by fans as "Wilco meets Oasis" and "Mod Country."

Shamus 73 received accolades for their debut album "Growing In My Mind." One review said "Shamus 73 frame their straight-ahead song writing with discipline, passion, and hooks that never stop... Everything about Shamus 73's "Growing in my Mind" feels good ... These boys from the northern tundra are damn good...Shamus 73 reminds me painfully of how much I miss the original and unique flavor of the Minnesota music scene."

Shamus 73 offers a blend of the old and new, delivering their message to an ever growing group of fans one song at a time.
