Wooden Shjips Tour Next Week

Written by John Ritchie on March 2, 2010

Wooden Shjips play the Annandale next Thursday, March 11 with special guests Naked On The Vague and Circle Pit. Tickets on sale now from the venue.

Wooden Shjips (that’s not a typo) is a quartet who play rock n roll in a style heavily influenced by the experimentalism of psychedelia, classical minimalism and garage rock excess. Started as an experiment in rhythmic primitivism and group improvisation, the current lineup brings a more structured rock approach to its performances. Their songs sound something akin to the icy garage rock of early Echo & The Bunnymen crossed with the sun-bleached tremolo-punk of the Scientists. There are hints of krautrock, the trance-inducing organ haze of Suicide, Deerhunter style dance-drone, classic desert-fried garage psych and the mysterious, obscure Japanese lysergic-rock band Les Rallizes Denudes all mixed into one explosive whole.
