Album Notes
\"Dubbing themselves the Shaker Hoods, the trio quickly worked up a set of muscular, back-to-basics rock and roll. They started hitting local clubs in October and have been on a tear ever since.\"

--Richard Gintowt (The Pitch)

\"The Shaker Hoods’ debut album, Mean Machine, bears a striking resemblance to a lot of other vistas in the collective rockscape. Mostly metal, with a definite ’80s vibe and heavy nods to the musculature of Iggy’s Detroit, it’s an imperfect document of an undoubtedly killer live Kansas City band.
Most of Mean Machine’s cuts slam sure-footed, tight and under the four-minute mark. Frontman Jon Freeman’s singing is straightforward, with some of Lemmy or James Hetfield’s growl on the bottom and a taste of Chris Cornell’s clarity up top, but not much in the way of histrionics. It’s sturdy and serviceable, complementing brothers Paul and Ryan Marchman’s similarly workmanlike guitar and drums.
When the record clicks, it’s a lot of fun. Leading off with its strongest track, “This Chariot May Kill Me,” machine-gun guitars and shifting time signatures combine in a sophisticated head-banger that conjures some Metallica menace.
The not-so-vaguely Guns N’ Roses-inflected opening of “Dead and Gone” leads into an ugly punk/metal slammer that ends exactly where it should, closing the album on another high point.\"

--derek donovan (special to ink)

\"Mean Machine...Independent. Jon Freeman (b), Paul Marchman (g), and Ryan Marchman (d) delivered some high octane, hard drivin\' rock to the studio this morning. Roaring like an open header 440 down I-35, the debut disc from these veteran Kansas City rockers really puts the POW in power trio!\"

--Arjay (90.1FM KKFI Kansas City, MO)

“Diggin\' that chariot song more and more each time I hear it”

Real Rock
Ok,There is only one reason to buy this CD.IT FUCKIN ROCKS thats why.With all the fake Metal and EMO out there it os so nice to hear a band that can just plug in and RAWK.The Shaker Hoods I feel are on there way.I think also they can join the ranks of such bad ass bands like The Hangmen,Nashville Pussy,Supersuckers and Motorhead.No frills No image and the attitude is in the live performace.Just 3 guys belting it out with everything they have and not afraid to sweat while doing it.
If you like your music true and loud please buy this CD or see them live or do both.
Keep Rock N Roll Alive!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vroom Vroom !
'Mean Machine' by the Kansas City trio The Shaker Hoods is, pardon the pun, one hell of a ride. Straight forward, pedal to the metal (again, sorry) rock and roll. The lead off track 'This Chariot May Kill Me' was stuck in my head for weeks after first hearing it. That is definitely the sign of a good song ! Other standout tracks include 'Mean Machine', 'All Mistakes' and 'Dead and Gone'. Really though, there's not a lemon among the eight songs. (yup, that was one last car reference). Rambling, poorly written review aside - here's what you need to know - BUY THIS CD.
