An amphetamine-fuelled soundtrack designed for the dark, sweaty venues Shame call home.

Banger




Ever wished you could have seen The Sex Pistols in their heydey? Sham 69 before they got old? Never fear, Shame are here, and they've brought their brand new banger ‘Concrete' with them.

A call-and-response dialogue taking place in somebody's head, the track is as violent and punchy as we've come to expect from South London's foremost punk dropouts. Frontman Charlie Steen's hoarse shouts sound like the combination of a 20 cigarette a day habit mixed with raw, bleeding emotion.

Shame seem determined to bring the sound and spirit of punk kicking and screaming into 2017, and with ‘Concrete' it looks like they've managed it. An amphetamine-fuelled soundtrack designed for the dark, sweaty venues Shame call home. Jake Hawkes
