The Girls and Shut Up

September 19, 2006 at 10:05 am Leave a comment

The Girls were a unique and utterly weird band from Boston. They existed from the late 1970’s into the early 80’s. During their existence they only released one single, Jeffrey I Hear You, which was produced by David Thomas (of Pere Ubu) and released on his label. A few years after the band boke up, a Boston label called Brasch reissued some collected studio recordings, along with Jeffrey I Hear You, on an LP called Reunion. A live CD is currently available; it is called Live At the Rathskeller.

After The Girls broke up, keyboardist Robin Amos formed Shut Up. The band alternated between dark, often industrial, sounds and brighter wiggly Zolo and Zonk tracks on their only LP, Hell in a Handbasket (which came out on Brasch Records the same year as The Girls Reunion LP).
