"Touching on the more neglected moments of rock’s royalty to the weird and wonderfully unsung world of garage bands, psychedelic fly by nights, pot smoking country-rock bands, hippie folkies and country singers; the acceptable side of progressive rock; heavy duty denim clad basement rockers; wigged out funkateers and jazz men; synth based experimental boffins… right through to the powerpop and early punk bands that ushered in the ’80s, Shindig! prides itself in joining the dots together from the very best of music’s past. It also casts a selective eye over the best new musicians and bands who continue to develop and expand on what has gone before. Film, TV, legendary clubs, festivals and events, counter culture and whatever tickles our fancy are covered as well, with passion, knowledge and integrity."
