Rated 5 out of 5 by MattUpchuck from Great Band Great Fun I originally saw Shellac support Fugazi in about 2000 in London and was blown away by the relentless and slow abrasive noise they created. Despite already liking Big Black I hadn't heard much Shellac but I naturally fell in love with it. I saw Shellac again last August playing at Regent Theatre in Los Angeles. It was I believe a one-off show (not on tour) and the band were in great spirits, joking with the crowd between songs, testing everyone's patience of grinding repetition (like The Fall or perhaps even Stewart Lee). They played My Black A55 (cannot "swear" on here), Prayer to God and God knows how many other classics over the course of what must have been a couple of hours before taking the drum kit apart and each beating nine bells out of it. Steve Albini tumbled off the stage with his guitar which was hilarious (although I did worry about his Travis Bean guitar!) Incredible night, great fun, great humour, great music. Top night - I hope they play in Brighton like they did last year in L.A.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ed board from Shellac of North America The Tramshed is really well run. Apart from the sticky floor. Brilliant venue!
