"SHACK SHAKERS' TRAILER & GEAR RECOVERED!
At 10am this morning, Officer Rob Egger with the Nashville Police Dept. awakened the sleeping giant Mark Robertson with the awesome news that the Shack Shakers' trailer, gear and merch had all been FOUND!
Dumped at a nearby airstrip by the river, the trailer sat idle with 95% of the contents still in tact. Only David's orange Gretsch (NOT the White falcon! whew.) and Mark's P-Bass were missing.
The theory goes that some illegal laborers (i.e.: no traceable fingerprints) had swiped our trailer, thinking it contained construction materials and power tools (the property where it was parked had sustained ... continue reading

The Polecats, De Kroeg in Geldrop 8/10/2006
A lot of people turned up for The Polecats gig in de Kroeg in Geldrop. It
was the original line up with Tim Polecat, the famous Boz Boorer on guitar,
Phil Polecat on double bass and John Buck on drums. The Polecats were part
of the early-'80s British rockabilly revival scene. The gig was fantastic,
that is rock'n'roll with some balls. Tim Polecat was jumpin up and down on
stage, rollin' all over the floor, hanging on the ceiling and of course he
pulled down a slide projector which was rather hilaric. After all those
years, these guys can still rock the joint! The famous neo-rockabilly band
from the eighties did ... continue reading
