The Shadracks are a three-piece rock n’ roll group hailing from Medway, Kent, with Babylonian overtones.
Drawing lyrics from the forgetfulness and lost hope the group aims to play 40 years in the past, but with modern precision. The origins of the group date back over 6 months when Huddie Shadrack and Ellisa Abednego had a brief encounter in deserted park land. With a sheared an interest in incompetent punk and beat music it became paramount that they form a group, and quickly. At that very moment they heard the dulcet twang of old onion strings being plucked in the near versinity. Scouring the herbaceous borders the two friends happened upon Elle Meshack, harp in hand. Could she fix them into shape?
The answer was ‘yes!’ So via a frosty garage in upper Strood The Shadracks’ sound came into being.
After just two rehearsals the cocky kids decided it was high time they recorded a debut LP. And so it came to pass.
They recorded a limited 7″ for the Damaged Goods anniversary set, a cover of ‘Oh Bondage Up Yours!’ by X-Ray Spex and also appeared at the 30th Anniversary live show alongside CTMF and Johnny Moped at the Music Machine in Camden Town, London.
Marc Riley invited them into Maida Vale for a live session on his BBC 6Music show in early 2019 and then they went back into Ranscombe studio in Rochester and recorded 3 tracks for their second single which was released as a 7″ called Tranquil Salvation
They are currently writing and recording tracks for their second album which will be released in 2021.
