There is a school of thought – one that I don’t subscribe to, which is why the website exists – possibly why you read the website, thank you for taking the time so to do – that claims that bands should never put out videos like this – perhaps that is why they remain theorists not musicians or music fans, as they also believe that auto-tune vocals prove ability.


I am reminded of a load of nonsense heading round the internet thread of ‘music education’ – by those with little experience, but most certainly a vested interest in lining their own pockets, who advise to never send a message to a music journalist unless it is through a PR firm. As you well know by now, using a PR firm is perhaps the best way to ensure this music journalist will take the introduction with a pinch of salt.

From a live recording with a blown amp – the audience remain happy – as I hope you will to and don’t be afraid to join in with the enthusiasm of the crowd – Big. Yes the vocal is muted, it doesn’t change a thing – music is about connection and this connects with a wide-smiling crowd.

Sharkmuffin

Sharkmuffin from Brooklyn in The USA is the garage rock trio of Tarra Thiessen (Vocals / Guitar), Natalie Kirch (Bass / Vocals) and Janet LaBelle (Drums).

Sharkmuffin - garage rock from The USA

Scorching guitar sprawls around the room as a moody bass meanders menacingly whilst percussion impatiently harries the instrumentation and through the haze a foaming vocal articulates the pent-up energy unleashing itself into the ears as Sharkmuffin take over the speakers. The trio harness the sounds to deliver music with precision and focus that engages the audience and the additional noise making bits of kit when used add an extra layer and twist to the music.

About to set out on a tour extending through to July, the trio are also scheduled to spend some time in the Studio over the summer to record their début LP with a new EP currently being mixed and mastered, so do expect to hear much more of Sharkmuffin in the coming months something to which I am looking forward.
