Shame - Songs of Praise

Record of the Week is the brutally addictive debut album from Shame.

They've long had a reputation as a legit and explosive live band, and perhaps the biggest success of Songs of Praise is that they have captured that thrill on record. There is plenty of scuzz and frenzy, but it is actually very smart. They've done a brilliant job of putting everything in its right place without over filtering or losing any of the alchemy that rattles it along. Brilliant and exciting post-punk. Right up our street.
