A hot new record here from wild audio dabblers Shit & Shine. The last few albums presented a very dance-friendly version of their weirdo sound, and Everybody’s A Fuckin Expert keeps the danceability (just), while frantic-ing up everything. A colourful fun-time ride into madness. CD or double LP on Editions Mego.

8/10 Laurie Staff review, 11 September 2015

Shit & Shine, or Poo & Polish before watershed, have managed to destroy any possibility of a ‘watershed’ release with Everybody’s a Fuckin’ Expert, an album presumably bashing music reviewers such as myself. Fair enough, we’re all ill-informed idiots. What’s the point in broadcasting one opinion to so many other opinionated fools?

I have no idea whether this is one or three persons at this point, but I’d expect little attention is paid to appeasing such opinions from S&S’s retreat in Austin, TX. They’re/he is much more concerned with blasting relentless loops at your ears, especially after all of those wonky jazz impressions on Chakin’. ‘Upside Down Cheeseburger’ features some sweet techno whirls, with woodblocks and ghostly snares playing hopscotch with very subby kicks and disembodied voices. It’s much closer to 54 Synth-Brass…, focusing on the most broken of rhythms, Wespennest being a nicely organised beat that just keeps skipping and clonking you one without warning.

Everybody’s a Fuckin’ Expert teeters brilliantly on the edge of order and chaos, establishing a rhythmic centre before twisting it with scattered overlays. But despite all the distortion and mindmessery, S&S are actually alright folks, the tracks having an upbeat, enthusiastic pace to them. As the reverse of the sleeve says in small bold letters, “Life Is Short, Be Nice!”. My ears hurt.
