Shifty Strangers are the result of many a drunken night and hazy afternoon spent in the woodlands of Essex. From these humble beginnings they took to the road, playing their first gig in Southend on 11th Oct 2008 under the name “ChavTownBand” where they appeared on the same bill as Adam Ficek of Babyshambles fame. They later went on to play over 100 gigs that year.
Their sound has continued to develop along the way. From acoustic beginnings they eventually recruited a drummer and a bass player and “went electric” Later changing their name to “Shifty Strangers” The result is an energetic fast paced melodic live set. Which sits somewhere between all of their collective influences. From Nirvana to Libertines. From Queens of the stone age to Johnny Cash.
They have recorded a 6 track EP in their homes which has been met with very positive responses online and continues to be sought after at gigs. Their song “Chav Town Blues” has been played Regularly on Tom Robinson’s BBC6 Show Introducing. They have also appeared on local Radio performing their music. (Phoenix Fm, Southend Radio, Safe Radio)
They have most recently enjoyed a tour of Europe as well as playing festivals up and down the country. The adventure continues…
