Biography

The Shivvers were a power pop band from Milwaukee, active from 1978 to 1982. They had their roots in the 60s music, but their future was in the newborn eighties. They were more new wavey than punk but retained from the latter a sense of urgency that could be heard in their sole single "Teen Line" released on the Fliptop indepedent label in 1980. The Shivvers were Jill Kossoris (vocals), Jim Richardson (drums), Mike Pyle and Jim Eannelli (guitars) and Scott Krueger (bassist/songwriter). Read more on Last.fm.
