Shellac was formed when Bob Weston moved to Chicago and joined drummer Todd Trainer and guitarist Steve Albini in 1992. They played their ?rst shows in Chicago in 1993, and ?rst out of town shows later that year in Australia, Japan, and New Zealand. This will be the band’s ?rst trip back to Australia since 1993. The ?ights are pretty long.
Since then, the band has released 4 LPs and a few 7-inch singles. The most
recent LP, Excellent Italian Greyhound, was released in June of 2007. All of
Shellac's records are available from Touch and Go Records, Chicago.
They all work for a living and the band is our pastime, so they don't tour often or for very long. Concerts and touring have no correlation with album releases, but they tour when they have the time and inclination. They love playing music together.
The band will continue to release albums and play concerts at the same sporadic pace inde?nitely,
