Album Notes

Instrumentalists SHADOW OF A GREAT NAME have released their fourth independent CD, "Exteriors".
This album furthers the band's experiments with the form and function of rock music begun on 2002's "Shadow Of A Great Name" and continued with "Majestic, mystical effect sounds that are suggestive of outer space" (2002) and "Invisible Side of a Situation" from 2003.


Since forming in spring of 2001, SOAGN has performed throughout the southeastern U.S. and has been featured on college radio staions such as WREK, WMUC, WXDU, WKNC, WXYC, and more. The North Carolina trio has garnered reviews from California to Finland, Scotland to Chicago.


"Exteriors" cements the band's reputation for tweaking the formulas of "mesmerizing, atmospheric, groove-oriented post-rock" (Punk Planet magazine). Atlanta's Southeast Performer Magazine made this prediction last December: "[SOAGN] have the ability to lead the music world into new avenues of expression."


featuring Steve Gore (Rascal Reporters) on "There's too much Reality Coming Through."


to write a review


...a force to be reckoned with, like the a swarm of locust decending from the heavens to grind up a musical landscape cluttered with wanna B's and phoneys...this band is the excitement of original musical thought....

Expose Magazine

"...there’s a lot of great material here that just gets better with each listen.
Start with the basics: drums, bass and guitars – then add some keyboards, piano, electronics, loops, tapes, and many unusual textural sounds of mysterious origin; the contrasts between spaces with a lighter touch (usually leaning to a somewhat jazzier vibe) and the heavier moments of gritty, often abrasive post-rock segue together with smooth transitions, not shock-breaks, and are often punctuated with more experimental interludes, so it all works and fits together very well. -Peter Thelen, Expose Magazine

Punk Planet

" instrumental trio that successfully create a specific atmosphere for each
"Shadow Of A Great Name are an instrumental trio that successfully aim to create a specific atmosphere for each song. Some are upbeat while most are spacey, mixing sound effects with guitar, bass and drums."
- Punk Planet Magazine (Chicago) March, 2005
