Trashy garage-rock band from New York.

Jose, Brent, & Chris started playing together in September 1992 or so. The first drummer was Skinny Dave. That line-up played one show on campus. Dave was replaced the following summer by Scott. Lots of shows & 7"s later, the band recorded "Lotta Trash! Lotta Action!!" in 1995, released on 40 Watt the following year & then quickly released by Cacophone. A one-week tour of the midwest followed. The next year "Switchblades & Sideburns" was recorded for Stiff Pole Records & released in 1998 or so.

All the recordings were done in conjunction with Steve Baise of the Devil Dogs.

The Morning Shakes broke up around 3:00 AM May 16, 1998 in Atlanta, GA after its last show there at the Star Bar in the parking lot of the infamous Clermont Lounge while on another one-week tour for "Switchblades."
