About Shellshag

Johnny "Shellhead" and Jen Shag, two halves of Brooklyn indie duo Shellshag, got their individual starts in the '90s San Francisco D.I.Y. scene, while running the infamous Starcleaners Warehouse -- a historical music co-op in the Mission District that was formerly home base to the Residents, the Dandy Warhols, and the Brian Jonestown Massacre. They crossed paths when Johnny was a member of the band 50 Million and Jen was in Static Faction, and soon after, they teamed up to form a power pop trio called Kung Fu USA. In 2003, they stripped back the group and re-formed as Shellshag. Mixing No Age-type noise punk and Moldy Peaches-type innocence, they toured incessantly, and gained notice with energetic sets and a unique presence: Jen drummed while standing up and Johnny ended sets with explosive guitar feedback. Their first album, the now out of print Gary Young EP, was recorded by Pavement's Gary Young in 2004. Destroy Me I'm Yours followed in 2007. ~ Jason Lymangrover
