Hi, we're Shakedown Suzies.
Sleazy, dirty rock n' roll from Jönköping. Sweden.
Started back in early 2009, by Ricki and Jon in Jönköping, the band has released a bunch of demos and played with some really cool bands during the years. Right now their debut album is being mixed by Uffe from Grace.Will.Fall.
Eight songs, both older favorites and brand new material, will be released on vinyl and digital around summer 2013. Although there's a lot of album talk around the corner right now, Shakedown Suzies is probably more known for their sweaty, adrenaline packed and 100% top fueled live shows.
Starring:Ricki (aka the Rascal) - Vox and all that charismatic frontman stuff
Jon - Guitars like Yngwie himself
Agust - The four-string punisher
Mad - Extravagant skinbashing madman
Some of the bands they've had the honor to play with…
Babylon Bombs, Sister Sin, Roxie77, Bai Bang, Chris Laney, Zinny Zan, Vietcong Pornsürfers
- Formed in 2009.
- Influenced by 80's rock n' roll. Motörhead and Guns n' Roses as well as newer bands in the genre like HCSS and Babylon Bombs.
- A total of four rockers. Two of them are also in The Embodied.
- Loves beer and snus.
- They have never played a slow, greasy ballad live. Ever.
- Jon and Ricki lived together in the beginning. The Shakedown parties are considered epic nowadays.
- Have, upon request on rare occasions, played Bad News - Warriors of Genghis Khan.
