  Shaken & Disturbed by Convulsions

Shaken & Disturbed cover art

Artist: Convulsions
Title: Shaken & Disturbed
Catalogue Number: Stout Fellow Records
Review Format: CD
Release Year: 2001


A collection of recordings containing many of their live favourites such as "Walk with Me", "I Think I'll Pass", "Kow Tow" and "No Idea". One of the best things about this band is their ability to absorb styles. Sometimes they sound a bit country, sometimes a bit jazz and sometimes just plain aggressive, hard driving r & b. The linking factor is the powerhouse, train-a-coming harmonica playing of Ben Ruth that drags the best out of the rest of the band.


Try to catch them live as that is where the band is at their best. Truly the hardest working band in show business, by the way.
