Wooden Shjips


KEXP sent me message via Flickr this morning asking if they could use a photo of my friend Omar's band the Wooden Shjips. I said, "Of course! I'm a huge Shjips fan!". We went to see the Shjips this year at SXSW. Here is what the Rolling Stone had to say about that show -
"Wooden Shjips (not a typo) are from San Francisco, but the concentrated ferocity of the freakouts on their two very-underground releases — a white-label ten-inch EP (the band gave away the first 300 copies) and a clear-vinyl single ("Dance, California") — arrives via the Seventies Germanic-guitar lunacy of Guru Guru and the confrontational repetition of VU." – David Fricke, Rolling Stone
