Shopping - Why Choose


  • £11.99

Formed in East London in 2012, Shopping forge an itchy, angular explosion of propulsive bass lines, primitive drums and guitar lines sharp as broken glass. With the three members, Rachel Aggs, Andrew Milk and Billy Easter, also playing in a plethora of UK DIY bands including CovergirlTrash Kit and Wet Dog, they draw from a well of late-70s / early-80s post-punk with a voraciousness seldom seen these days, bringing to mind the jagged aggression of Gang of Four, the pure, raw yelp of The Slits and the dance-inducing thrust of Delta 5, The Au Pairs and ESG.

The band released their debut album Consumer Complaints in November 2013 on their own Milk Records. The LP drew a flurry of press for their spot-on divining of post-punk’s driving force. Their second album, Why Choose, released by FatCat Records in 2015 presents Shopping emboding the spirit of experimentation, social upheaval, clashing gender politics and ethical change that defined their 70’s counterparts and still ring true today.
