Burning In Paradise by The Tough Shits



The Tough Shits are a rock and roll band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Their unique sound is a sonic missive to their garage forefathers, without being strictly, just another scuzzy rock band. Their musical influences are informed of: The Rolling Stones, KISS, Sam Cooke & The Clash. Their stylistic influences come directly from bands similar to the New York Dolls. They have shared past bills with touring bands like Jay Reatard, Redd Kross, Mikal Cronin, Meatbodies and every good band that’s passed through Philly. ‘The Tough Shits are so half-assed about being a ‘successful’ band that it’s almost heroic. Though they rarely play outside Philadelphia and they have the self-promotional instincts of a pile of bricks, they’ve amassed a small but fervent cult of admirers drawn in by their genius-level pop hooks and infectious attitude of not giving a single fuck in the whole world.’ – Chicago Reader [table “reds0170” not found /]
