I Can't Say No
In 2007, some exciting Kiwi punks called Shaky Hands changed their name to Cut Off Your Hands under legal threats from some folkers from Portland. In a ground-breaking ruling, the band were also forced to hand over their credibility and several of their most-valuable associated assets, including their magnificent pop-punk franticness and Steve Jobs Fashion Sensibilities. Two years later, in a seemingly unrelated event, bedroom-DIY-one-man-punk-band, Mario Kart, released an album called Independence Day, which featured a track called Ride My Wavve, a clear diss aimed at Nathan "Wavves" Williams. In 2014, similarly lo-fi punx, Shaky Handz, dodge court cases by utilised the letter 'z' at the tail of their name, drop-in on that same wavve, joyfully flip off the world from their base in the suffocatingly stale city of Sydney and successfully transport us back to that blissful time, a few years ahead of the obligatory seven-year cycle.
