Upcoming: SHEER MAG 7"

I'm pretty excited to let you know that Static Shock will be releasing the debut 7" from SHEER MAG for the UK and Europe! This was released by the band last year on their Wilsuns Wilsuns label and quickly grew into one of my favourite singles of recent memory.

Here's the write up for the record, courtesy of Sean Forbes:
"The debut 7" from Philadelphia's SHEER MAG finally gets a wider UK and European release! Sheer Mag seemingly came out of nowhere last Autumn with this killer four track EP. It is the only record of recent times that manages to sound like a mix of a classic Seventies rock record, power pop and an obscure English DIY 7" from the late 70's. Everything sounds scrappy, fuzzy and scuzzy and it's all the better for it. The riff packed guitar work and fuzzed female vocals sit perfectly together whilst the crude rhythms just adds bounce and basic beats. Think a mix of the power pop delight of Protex, the lo-fi nature of The Seize, the riffs of Thin Lizzy and the powerful female vocal of Suzi Quatro. It shouldn't work but it does. It really does!"

The record will be out in late March (alongside the new Perspex Flesh 12"), but you should probably listen to it right now if you haven't already:
