Don't believe us...

Let Other People Tell You What to Think!

Billboard, 13 January 1996

Somewhere between
	 punk and country is the mixed-up music of Shinola. This Chapel Hill, NC-based
	 act layers drunken vocals with noisy guitar riffs and distorted violins to 
	 form a frenzied mesh of self-pitying lyrics and finely arranged harmonic feedback.

Magnet, February/March 1996
The debut single ... with its minimal production and
 and simple song structures...takes a loosely based punk ethic and wraps
   it through country twang. The a-side, with its shrieking violin fed through a
    tube amp, is a dandy tune, dissonant and dirty.  --Greg Barbara
