Gizmodo Gets Genki Shanked & Last 3 US Shows!
If you need a song to get you revved up and ready to go, look no further; Adebisi Shank has you covered. This Irish trio puts out some seriously upbeat math-rocky craziness, and Genki Shank (free dl) from their album This Is The Second Album Of A Band Called Adebisi Shank is a great introduction. A bit more intuitive than some of their other, mathier tunes, Genki Shank has a great galloping beat...

BBC Music Live Show Review: Belfast
Adebisi Shank, Toby Kaar at Bunatee Bar, Belfast - Thursday July 26th Given that tonight’s gig in the Bunatee Bar is first and foremost an opportunity for Dublin rockers Adebisi Shank to test out new material as part of their “New Tunez” tour, it would be natural to assume that they might be a tad rusty on the live circuit these days - particularly as their most recent round...

Live Review / Electric Picnic 2011
Adebisi Shank - Gig Review - Electric Picnic 2011 10/10 Hypnotic, electrifying performance from a very talented trio! Adebisi Shank, what a name…what a band! I had the good fortune to be in the right place at the right time at this year’s Electric Picnic to catch these lads in action and action it is! The sound that this band of three achieves is incredible. The whole...

Adebisi Shank as remixed by Cgak - Check out more of his remixes of Sargent House bands on the Don’t Sleep Remix album here
Surfin' USA / Quicksilver Featured Artist
Adebisi Shank’s music is a scorching-hot mess. This experimental Irish trio possesses an awesome energy that conjures images of hadron colliders, unearthly supernovas, and gargantuan explosions, and we’re not exaggerating about any of that. With a swirling sound that compounds through tons of frenetic samples and loops, every Shank song builds to a seemingly unsustainable level of...

Musical Mathematics Feature // Adebisi Shank
A sharp lookin’ fella in a red fabric mask mans the bass guitar with chaotic precision whilst bouncing in unison alongside the twiddles and strikes of a juddering guitarist. The pounding, commanding, dictating, thumping, clouting drums from behind meet the electric noise in the middle. Strong riffs and hooks bellow and sound from speaker to speaker smashing hot instrumental alternative rock all...

Irish Times Review: Electric Picnic - Sept 3, 2011
Review: Adebisi Shank, Cosby Stage Atmosphere: A hugely appreciative crowd gather in the smallish Cosby tent in anticipation of entering the wind machine simulator that is Adebisi Shank live. High: Vinny giving his bass guitar away to someone in the front row at the end of the gig much to everyone’s astonishment. Low: The feeling that this gig would have been better placed...
The State Live Review : Castlepalooza
…Adebisi Shank were next up and they played their usual kind of gig. So, roughly ten times better than any other gig you’ve ever been to. Seriously though, these three guys have moved to a level beyond compare in this country. Fun, frantic, sweaty, their set had everything you’d expect, culminating in masked bassist Vinny leaping from a wooden platform high up one of the tent’s poles into...

Flab Mag: Q&A with Vin of Adebisi Shank
FLABmag: I know you’ve already been asked about the band name, but I read that you said it was meaningless, yet your Wikipedia page says it’s a nod to Simon Adebisi, one of the most notorious characters on the HBO prison drama, Oz. If it’s true that it is that’s brilliant! My question is, what was your favorite storyline involving Adebisi on the show? (I loved when he went straight after...

Journal Of Music: Whelan's Live Review

Alarm Magazine: Interview
Fusing the distinguished guitar harmonies of Fang Island with the electronic whimsy of Battles, Adebisi Shank is producing a compelling new brand of electronic rock. The cover of its new album, the whimsically titled This is the Second Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank, is an apt analog to its music: a geometric, computer-generated landscape trod upon by galloping zebras. Musically, the...

Takes Being In America to get Noticed in Scotland
I came across Adebisi Shank a few months ago due to being a big fan of their US label, Sargent House, which is also home to the likes of This Town Needs Guns, Fang Island, and Native. Sargent House is known for working with innvoative, highly skilled musicians, and this Irish three-piece fit the bill perfectly. The band employ no vocals, there is simply no need due to the frenetic...
This is The Exclaim Review Of A Band Called...
Epic. Everything about Irish trio Adebisi Shank’s second LP screams the word. Their approach to muscular, complex rock music is comparable to Battles, but tempered with head-banging punk vigour and the kind of galloping metallic stomp sure to illicit some serious fist pumping or tossing of devil horns. To slap Adebisi Shank with the math rock tag would be misleading ― seldom do they...
This is The Review of a Website Called Treble
There’s a lot of crazy shit happening on Adebisi Shank’s quite literally titled second album, This Is the Second Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank. It’s like a Raymond Scott collection gone EBM/industrial. Or, perhaps, prog-rock covers of Happy Hardcore staples. And I haven’t ruled out the possibility that the band has discovered a way to power their Boss pedals with...
