East Berlin, November 1989 and the writing was on the wall. A project 5 years in the making was quickly disbanded and the participants sent to the four corners of the west. Never to be heard from again. Until now. The Shops are an apopalyptic four piece raised on short wave radio broadcasts from behind the Iron Curtain. Inspired by misheard disco and degenerate pop from underground Baltic bunkers. They’ve got more records than the Stasi.
