Well, I have very little to extol on this female fronted Buffalo, NY band, other than they were enjoyable but archetypal mid-80s, left-of-the-dial fare. Along the lines of Romeo Void with some of that "new south," Mitch Easter inflection to it, especially on the opener "Mental Affair" which is worth the price of admission alone. Don Delvincent's ringing fretwork lends a lot of pizazz to this ep, which is perhaps the quartet's only vinyl offering. From what I've been able to glean from Google, singer Gretchen Schulz still performs on occasion in the Buffalo area, only not with Shaking Hands. At this point they may be trembling, but certainly not shaking (ha ha). Couldn't help it.
