The SHIVVERS -(lost hits...) enhanced CD (Teenline #201a)

The SHIVVERS -(lost hits from Milwaukee's first family of powerpop 1979-82) enhanced CD (Teenline #201a) 20 songs + 5 videos

Simply put, the Shivvers may be the best female-fronted powerpop band the world has seen. It’s just that the world wasn’t exactly looking their way back in 1980... They had chops, talent, originality, looks— and if they’d been based in New York or L.A. the Shivvers would either have changed the course of music in the ’80s, or they’d have gloriously crashed and burned in a world-class blaze of hype. As it is, well, their lone, self-produced 45 sells for $300+ on eBay...
The Shivvers were always, foremost, a performing band —and before you start thinking Bangles or Go-Gos or Holly or Nikki, the Shivvers were more like a female-fronted Raspberries or early Badfinger than anything their new wave-era contemporaries were up to...

“A tour de force of pop hooks and the pouty, aching vocals of Jill Kossoris.” —Magnet

"’Teen Line’ is an out and out classic. If you have not heard it you should be ashamed" –Bucket Full Of Brains

"Kossoris' fetching, girlish voice pouts out pure teenage longing over hiccupping rhythms and ragged guitars” –Philadelphia Weekly

Expanded liners, color photos, 20 audio tracks influding three songs never before released, and five bonus QuickTime videos (featuring a glorious too-early-for-MTV music video of 'Please Stand By') $12.00

listen:
'Teen Line'
'My Association'
