Biography

Adebisi Shank are an electric, energetic, loud band from Ireland. Taking their cue from acts such as Battles, Oxes and Lite, their debut LP This is the album of a band called Adebisi Shank shines through with rays of inventiveness that would teach a few of their contemporaries a thing or two in the art of writing, without ever leaning into the self indulgent persuasions many have fallen ill to when attempting this sort of ‘art noise’.

Creating a record of supreme layers and intricate execution by every means needs a good pair of hands at the helm making sure everything fits into place. And everything fits in perfecty with J.Robbins (ex-Jawbox singer and production mastermind behind records from Mock Orange, Faraquet, Ponytail, Dismemberment Plan, Braid, Texas Is The Reason, Against Me and many more)having headed this trio’s debut. The record was recorded in June at the famous Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, MD and mastered at Inner Ear studios by Aloha guitarist, TJ Lipple. With the approval of such highly respected musical individuals it’s already evident that this little three piece from Wexford will be making huge waves in and amongst the ever growingfield of experimental, polyrhytmic, precision based music lovers.

Already picking up plenty of music fans on their path they have picked up the interest of film makers and producers alike. Their music has been featured in two films: “Danger High Voltage!” which has just won the Galway Film Fleadh, was shown at Electric Picnic festival and is now going to the American festivals.

    I am getting so old that my favourite bands break up right in front of my eyes. The joke is that I've never actually seen them. And it makes that doubly sad.

    Sadly it seems like this will be the last album of a band called Adebisi Shank... (-_-) for realz, from their FB page: "These gigs are special. They are the last gigs Adebisi Shank will ever play in Ireland."

    Mazel Tov is like a soundtrack of vintage porn. Highly appreciated.

    Love the new album! I have to say, contrary to shucks_shucks Voodoo Vision is the only track I don't like. Favourites are: Turnaround, Mazel Tov, Sensation and Chaos Emeralds.

    I've got to say that the new album grows on you incredibly with an open mind and a few extra listens. I think that the electronic approach and sheer amount of vocoder will deter a lot of fans of their earlier work, but Third Album is an immense amount of fun. It's paced so well that it makes revisiting it a breeze – if my car's USB scrobbled, I think it'd probably be my most played record of the last month. Maybe two.
