I saw Shepherds play twice -- once at Goodbye Blue Monday and again at Silent Barn (which I believe appears here as Loco Live). I don't think they played many other shows. I was surprised when I looked and saw that before they ever played a show they had several cassettes out. I suppose when you all live together it is easy to go into the studio you have at your house and record some jam sessions.
I don't listen to them as much as Meneguar or Woods (who have gotten especially good lately), but I certainly have been known to enjoy the noise (or drone, or whatever) as of late. I certainly have a greater appreciation for it then I did a few years ago, although I'm not quite sure why. The only exception is when I am riding my bike -- for that I usually need something a bit more upbeat.
I have seen rips of these elsewhere but let me assure you that, as with everything you see posted here, I personally ripped these from my own copies. I never post other people's rips, and I never will. All the content you see here is original, even if there are other versions available elsewhere. So why not take this opportunity to upgrade your own rips? How can you go wrong with 320?
