Power-Popscurites is a series meant to bring to unearth power-pop bands so unknown that they've even been missed (or possibly ignored) by the greater minds of the blogosphere.
The Shakers were Teenage Head-related late seventies/early-eighties Toronto power-pop-a-billy produced by future legend Daniel Lanois (U2, Bob Dylan, Emylou Harris etc).
The Shakers (Future Teenage Head member Dave Rave - Guitars/Vocals, Tim Gibbons - Guitar/Vocals, Claude DesRoches - Drums and Rick Andrews - Bass/Vocals) probably seemed unstuck in time even back in '79. Clearly enamored of a lot of the same sort of things, Chuck Berry, real early Beatles, cars with enormous fins etc. that inspired the later seventies Flamin' Groovies (they cover "Shake Some Action Here"). This collection is hopelessly out-of-print and since this here internet has almost no info about the band, you'll just have enjoy, "Out the Door" and then let us know what you think. (New player requires a teensy bit of patience but it works.)
The Shakers Self-Titled link is on the comments.
Speaking of comments, give us your quick review of the Shakers.
