The Bands of Gonerfest 12 – Shadow in the Cracks


Let’s agree that all of these post are about one thing: the music. There are quite a few well know bands playing at this years Gonerfest. You have Jack, and Ty and Nobunny and then there are bands that we know of because we like garage/punk and we pay attention to what Eric likes/promotes and assembles for Gonerfest. The surprize band this year for me, is “Shadow In The Cracks” This is a side project of one of our favorite bands, Blind Shake. And now that Goner has put up a track off the upcoming album ( Goner Records ,October 2015) , we get to listen to some glorious noise from Shadow In The Cracks so rock n roll kids and turn this shit up as loud as you can…..
