THE SHADES with special guest DJ MAX TURNER
The Shades were conceived in the creative breeding ground of Walter Jeffermenko's Steiner Primary School class. Piecing together the thick organ sounds of the enlightened despot and the genius of the caveman; the band played its first decent show in 2003 at St. Kilda's Esplanade Hotel.
The heavily 70s influenced tunes were recorded the following year on "Sole Believer", the Shades' first Compact Disc. The following years brought the band some great gigs and the sound matured as three of the shades finally went through the last stages of puberty. Following a fraternal feud the band morphed into a less heavily structured conglomerate, tracks such as "Roots" (aka everything was pink) emerging from incubations in the Teskey sweat-box along with an array of newly written material. The Shades disbanded shortly after releasing their second piece of work entitled 'Simplicity' and haven't been sighted on the touring circuit since. Nearly five years on, a truly momentous occasion awaits. A night simply not to be missed, The Shades are reuniting and will put on special comeback show on Monday the 17 of December. All you sole believers out there, get ready for the gig of your lives... The Shades are back!
