They’re the legendary 70s supergroup that never took off.
Sharks was started by Free member Andy Fraser, but now features renowned guitar player and (Sex Pistols) producer Chris Spedding, Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook, plus further talent from Snips on vocals, Nick Judd on keys and Tosh Ogawa on bass with his unique sound and appearance.
A favourite of musical legends, Sharks had money, a ridiculous car, record deals and much more thrown at them, only to end up wrapping the fin-toting and teeth-baring car around a tree.
This was the literal car-crash that ended the band, until now.
Following the death of Andy Fraser in 2015, 70’s cult band Sharks performed a series of tribute gigs. They have now reformed and recorded a new album.
Given the talent involved it’s hardly surprising that they have made a quality product with a raw last-century feel.
What is unexpected is the sheer drive and attitude of the beast, not to mention mind-bending lyrics and some delicate techno touches to enhance the soundscape.
This is all wrapped up in a black-light cover by comic book legend Shaky Kane.
