Take one part Uncle Joe's Big Ol' Driver, two parts Posies, shake thoroughly and you have a stiff shot of Shuggie. Wedged firmly somewhere between the MONSTER ROCK of the 70s' and the melodic grit of Minneapolis, circa 1987,Shuggie transcends both sounds on a rock n' roll voyage all their own. Shuggie has been described as a "guitar-fueled, Foghat meets Badfinger, electric boogie across a Paul Westerberg landscape". On their self-titled debut, Shuggie breaks the mold of any preconceived northwest stereotypes, to deliver an eleven song dose of good old fashioned rock music (the kind your older brother or sister used as a guide book through puberty). Calling Seattle home, Shuggie summons the ghosts of everything from The Faces to Bad Company, in an effort to carry the rock n' roll torch into the new millennium. The only thing left to do, is sit back and cruise with Shuggie through an eternal summer on permanent overdrive.
