Listen: Listen to Shame in session for Annie Mac on Radio 1

Listen to Shame in session for Annie Mac on Radio 1

They played songs from debut album ‘Songs Of Praise’ and, um, a cover of ‘Rock Lobster’.

Shame are releasing their debut album ‘Songs Of Praise’ a week today (12th January), and dropped into the Maida Vale studios last night (4th January) for a Radio 1 session with Annie Mac.

The South London punks played a pair of tracks from the debut - recent singles ‘Concrete’ and ‘One Rizla’ - as well as sharing a ridiculous but rather fantastic cover of ‘Rock Lobster’. It also included a little snippet of ‘Stairway To Heaven’. “Stairway to lobster,” as vocalist Charlie Steen put it.

Bringing sexy back: Marika Hackman

On her second LP, Marika ditched folk for something altogether more ballsy. This time round she’s dropping any last semblances of cute and prioritising slickness, sass and a hefty dose of sex.
