Description

Shrimp Boat was a phenomenal band that made music out of Chicago from the mid '80s clear through to 1993. Taking inspiration from bluegrass, jazz, country, rock n roll and most importantly - their own collective gung-ho, their ability to voluminously manifest new song form from the air around them left those exposed awestruck. AUM Fidelity has never been a label for looking back. However, the voluminous joy and sweetest dreams that the music of Shrimp Boat provided was a major impetus in launching the label back in 1997 - pointedly, the promise of eventually manifesting an archival Box Set that would reveal to the world anew the quiet majesty and eternal beauty of their music was burning from the very beginning. In the summer of 2004, this promise was realized with the release of the 4xCD Box Set, Something Grand. As a dessert to this promise, the first-time-on-CD issue of their brilliant debut LP Speckly was arranged for release on AUM Fideilty in Spring 2005.
