The Shillings

Also called the English Shillings, this Oakland, CA-based quintet affected something of the Uk Invasion style in the beginning, but even though pretension, was sufficient to rate an individual release from Fantasy Records in early 1965 around the label’s Scorpio Records imprint. Alas, “Not really at all Accurate” b/w “IT HAD BEEN My Mistake” by no means proceeded to go anywhere, and neither do the group with Dream. A little body of unissued demos, dating from your springtime of 1966, reveal them like a much less affected and rather charismatic clothing, with the capacity of playing appealing, very energetic garage area punk, with great playing by guitarists Greg Cahill and David Guilder. Never to be puzzled with similarly called rings from Allentown, PA, and Dayton, OH.
