shows // The Saturday Shakedown
Ben and Matt's Saturday Shakedown - Live every Saturday 4-5pm (GMT). Click on the links to the right for all the past shows from the last few years...
We play flat-cap hillbilly country bues-punk, rock and roll and swinging gospel from the muddy shores of the Mississippi Delta to the delicate banks of the Clyde Estuary
Ty Segall, RL Burnside, The Dirtbombs, John Lee Hooker, Jerry Lee Lewis, Billy Childish, Chuck Berry, Davila 666, Gene Vincent, The 13th Floor Elevators, The Fall, Hank Williams, King Khan, The Reigning Sound, Jay Reatard (RIP)
"Rock and Roll is the voice of the young, the pulse of the kids who are with it, the kids who are no longer satisfied to look at the stars, but who are devising ways and means of reaching them... and to do that means trimming superfluous edges from every facet of life, including music."
shaking down season 13/14
BEN & MATT are game for a new season of Saturday afternoon unkempt, bedraggled, inept, outta-tune, righteous guitar and drum noise featuring music in 4/4 timing using really only the twin variables of rhythm and noise.
"Either be hot or cold. If you are lukewarm, the Lord will spew you forth from His mouth." Jerry Lee Lewis
