This week's AotW is The Hi-Nobles album Shake, released on Zaentz Record in 2009. This is the first and only offering from the Nobles, a San Francisco band containing no less than Scotty Holderby of Mordred and Greg Ingraham of The Avengers. Tune in at 5 pm PT on Thursday, September 8, for music Verbicide astutely described as "Sixties-styled, organ-fueled, fuzzed-out garage soul that couldn’t get any more R&B stuffed into it even with a shoehorn." Jess Goddesse is your hostesse.
