One of the bands on the compilation is the Shatners

The Shatners – “Shake Hands with The Shatners”
– definitive collection of demos, rarities + LIVE tracks from The Shatners

Many of these rare tracks were recorded for the band’s never-released rare 2nd album
“Get Us to the Church On Time, Or Else We’ll Slug Ya” (also known as The Pink Album)

The three superb rare LIVE tracks were recorded on a Sunday in 1994 (after midnight)
at Marina Pacifica Mall in Long Beach in front of 8 or 9 bored and fed-up hangers-on.

The second version of “Unfiltered Cigarettes” is from the rare 1993 compilation “Smells Like LA” on Wrecking Ball Records (Produced by Jim Cushinery) and features the rare incendiary drumming of future (and then-current) Carry Outs drummer Brian Bawinkel.

Brian now drums for PBS.

This compilation originally prepared by the very rare William Roper
Additions + anatomical corrections were made by the pseudo-incendiary Kurt Benbenek
