ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Shelby non-Bio:

Shelby was formed in the spring of 2000 by NYC locals Kenny Cummings and Phil Schuster. Their first few get-togethers were very casual (and included Chris Kavanaugh, former drummer of Big Audio Dynamite). They wrote and recorded their Songs | 8 cd in the summer of 2000 and have been playing around NYC since then. The CD has already drawn considerable praise and interest - the music has been described as New Order vs. The Who, with a little My Bloody Valentine on the side - and will be officially released in July 2001 on the notorious Merc Records label.

Shelby is:

Kenny Cummings sings and plays guitar and keyboards for Shelby. He fronted Little Shining Man from 1993 to 1998, and previously played and programmed synthesizers for acts as diverse as Elvis Costello and Midnight Oil.

Phil Schuster plays bass and keyboards for Shelby. He played bass for Stigmata a Go-Go from 1993 to 1997, and has also played with Toshak Highway (formerly Swervedriver), and Sophia (formerly God Machine).

Chad Wilson plays drums and sings for Shelby. He moved to NYC, in 1999, from Columbia, South Carolina. What could we possibly say about Chad that hasn't already been said?

Guitar driven goodness
Excellent new sound. The hooks are deep and the music is easy to sing along to. But not in that hokey Incubus way. The songs are well produced and arranged.

Holy canoli! The sound quality of the CD deserves 5-stars in itself! It's like New Order meets The Who with a touch of My Bloody Valentine. With some REALLY well-written songs and some gnarly effects, you've got a great power poppy emo record like Tug Boat Annie. Oh. I'm melting. Listen to it loud.

Sheer guitar bliss and damn good melodies
This cd has followed me from home stereo to car to work since I got it. Guitars and melodies blast and race and rage down a gorgeous highway of sound. 5am ache in the vocals. Buy this if you have ears.

Great and original!
This cd rocks, just flat out. The songs are inviting, original, and driven. Think early Radiohead meets Smashing Pumpkins and then beats Billy Corgan up for whining to much. The album is well crafted, flows nicely, and I really LOVE the last track. A great ending to a great cd! Good job guys!

I wish it were more than 8!
This is a great find and I can't wait to hear them live! This is a band, a sound, a pulse that is unstoppable and you don't want it to end...especially after just 8 tracks! I will gladly share with others and brag that I discovered these guys long before they were signed and considered a house-hold name. I hear echoes of Joy Division among others that really hold your attention and make you move. As another reviewer mentioned..."this CD follows me everywhere". I dare you to listen to this CD and not be tempted to see how loud you can play this music...it begs you to really blast this stuff and make sure everyone around you hears this great new music! I can't wait for the new album!
