• The Shacks – This Strange Effect
    • The Shacks – Hands In Your Pocket
    • 1. This Strange Effect
    • 2. Hands In Your Pocket

    The A side “This Strange Effect” is an updated take on the Ray Davies penned classic from 1965 while the B Side “Hands In Your Pockets” finds The Shacks dipping their toe into the rocksteady / reggae world. Recorded with the rhythm section of the infamous Frightnrs of Daptone Records fame, Shannon’s floaty vocal stylings are right at home on a new jack reggae rhythm.
