The Shrine - "Louise"
Where the riff and the board collide is where you'll find The Shrine. In the Louise video the boys take it to their friends secret underground skate warehouse for a rager. Somewhere in the background the mad woman is lurking, on the trail. No matter what she's coming for you. They legendary Gonzales backyard pool skate spot gets a funeral and the concrete wave gets smashed. If you have the need for speed, take it to the hills. Psychedelic Violence will prevail in the struggle against good and evil. The craving for raw power throughout the 70's & 80's skate rock universe will continue on as a timeless inspiration for rock and roll.
"On the night of November 6th, 1979 Black Sabbath was at their most drug addled and explosive standing. They were on tour supporting their newly released Never Say Die album and had a night off in Los Angeles. After knocking back a few drinks at the infamous Rainbow Bar, they decided to check out the local rock scene at the Whiskey A-Go-Go. Arriving late, they caught the tail end of a set by The Circle Jerks. Feeling intimidated yet inspired, they rented a rehearsal space and spent the rest of the night jamming. For an unknown reason they exclusively played Thin Lizzy material and Keith Moon was sitting in… These events never took place. But if they did, the results may have sounded similar to Los Angeles’s The Shrine. Formed in 2008, The Shrine play a houserocking breed of heavy, psychedelic, riff based Rock n’ Roll. Their debut, recorded on vintage reel-to-reel tape, by local hero Dave O. Jones and under the auspices of the notorious Chuck Dukowski, is the perfect soundtrack to any debaucherous gathering of longhairs. If you and your rag-tag group of riff-raff friends are planning a road trip to Humboldt County to 'Score', this is the album you need to be listening to on the way. The Shrine is Josh Landau on guitar/vocals, Courtland Murphy on bass, and Jeff Murray on Drums. Dig It." - Harley Rother
