Shaky Hands

Exciting post-punk type group (ala the Mint Chicks) that formed out of the indie-rock leaning Nova Echo with former guitarist Nick Johnson taking over the reigns as vocalist from the departing Jason Schoushkoff.

An exciting frontman known for his dramatic stunts like climbing walls and leaping from stages, Johnson leads a tight punky, but indie-influenced troop with a Smiths swagger (the group cover This Charming Man at pace) with the lineup of Phil (Bass), Michael (Guitar) And Brent (Drums). The group eventually changed their name to Cut Off Your Hands to avoid legal issues with an American group, and found even more success.
