Lets Get Lost!

Taken from “Kicking the Habit” a Review of our show in Zwolle…

Another nice discovery at the end of the afternoon in cafes Near where the American Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. to the example of Tom Waits sultry blues rock from the southern states to smithereens and stores together again tinkering to raw grooves and transverse songs, very passionate sung by frontman ‘Reverend’ itself. In the newly published The New Gospel For The Wayward that just appeared, here is the ‘Shine Shake’ sound all nice and vile raw recorded, live the music sounds a lot more whipping. For the big picture right on stage the band performs in thirties attire and the drummer at the age of an impressive beard. “Gather around my soapbox”, is one of his mantras, and yes, a full bar hangs on his lips, gently swaying her hips and shaking his head at this compelling music.

New Vinyl Double EP “The New Gospel For the Wayward”



Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. is releasing their new ep ’Belligerent’ as part of a beautiful and brand new vinyl record. This format – with its ghostly resonances and full-bodied sound – does true justice to the focused energy and juju magic of these 5 new songs.

’Belligerent’ showcases a rawer, stripped down sound that draws the listener straight into a world of ancient blues hollerers, rough swing and African polyrhythms just below the surface of our city streets. These modern tales of abandon and redemption are delivered with a possessed punk swagger that neatly evades any sense of nostalgia and gives this music a thoroughly new kind of swing.

2009 ep ’Soapbox’ included on vinyl release

This record has an additional bonus in that it includes – now on vinyl for the first time – the 4 songs from their acclaimed 2009 ep ’Soapbox’. It is this record, which cemented Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co. as a unique, and self- contained universe. Musical medicine men selling ancient mysterious cures for modern ailments – painting a demi-monde of juke joints and speakeasies, conjuring the spirits of fiery preachers and lost sinners into musical tales or as one reviewer so accurately put it ’turning snake oil into a healing balm’. These songs make a perfect vinyl companion to the new, raw sounds of ‘Belligerent’, and showcase the band’s unique identity and show the range and growth of the band.

New Video ’Belligerent’ and Website ’Shineonline.dk’

The superbly shot and edited video for the title track ‘Belligerent’ provides a perfect visual introduction to the band’s style and sound. Looking like a cast of characters from one of their songs, it is a black and white show reel of Suits, Sailors, feathers and fishnet blended with a live performance that perfectly captures that world between morning and night – when spirits walk the world and salvation lies in the here and now.

The new video for ’Belligerent’ is a fantastic addition to what is already an impressive back-catalogue of fine videos showcasing the band’s entrancing live performances at iconic Copenhagen venues such as Andy’s Bar and Jazzhouse.

Check the videos on the newly launched website www.shineonline.dk which is as smooth as their music is raw, providing an archive of photos and history alongside their own rather wonderful writing. This is also where you can listen to and purchase music and more importantly…

This is the foundation of the of the Juggernaut that is “BAZOOKAHOSEN “…
Bazookahosen was formed by a group of friends in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1998. Coming from diverse musical backgrounds the five band members set out to create their own brand of music and the outcome is an ever changing blend of genres from blues to noise jazz with a gypsy flavor. Their music has been called anything from thrash noir to modern-primitive, wobble jazz and alternative folk-rock. The influences are many and the music is indeed hard to label.

I slept uneasy so the morning brought trepidation. While packing and preparing for today, my only thoughts were, “This is what all the work was for. This moment, heading out on tour.” But in truth all I felt was fear….

-May 19th 2011

A friend recently told me that they produced art to give to the world,  in hopes of helping other people. I think that sounds just like an artist, a little self involved. I use to say the same thing but the truth is that in this society so much art is a rather selfish endeavor…


This is our new website and blog, our own selfish endeavor. I hope that we can make some friends and have some laughs and enjoy this world while it last’s…
