1). The Shames follow in a grand tradition of New York bands going back to the Velvet Underground and continuing through the Ramones and, more recently, the Strokes. Not that they sound specifically like any of those bands, just that they embody the same unique New York “state of mind” as each of those bands.
Like New York City itself, "The Transmigration Of Timothy Archer" has a rough exterior but a soft heart. Nowhere is this more evident than the closing track, “Feel So Sad,” a classic pop-rock song that would not be out of place on either "Loaded" or "Is This It." It's an incandescent pop song full of bitterness and heartache — and, ultimately, hope. Sort of like the city it that spawned it.

Denis Trudel (lead vocals), Joey Amerault (drums), James "JB" Amero (lead guitar), Patty "Beetle" Germoni (keyboards), Gerard Trudel (bass)
