The Blind Shake are a garage-punk trio from Minneapolis, MN. Two brothers, Mike and Jim Blaha, front the band and play baritone and regular guitar respectively, while longtime chum Dave Roper plays drums. They are known for their ferocious live shows and collaborations with psychedelic noise legend Michael Yonkers and John Reis (Rocket From The Crypt/Hot Snakes).
“The Blind Shake is at once spacey, primitive futuristic, and brutal: a kind of backyard extraterrestrial minimal surf-punk party. One guitar, one baritone guitar, a fuckload of reverb, and a drummer who deserves an Olympic medal.” –SF Weekly
They have a brand new EP on Slovenly Records as well as a full-length LP on Goner Records.
