This summer starts with a brand new single from Norway’s uncrowned beat-kings; Peter Berry & The Shake Set. It is recorded at Toe Rag Studios (London), and once again produced by Liam Watson. “Jenka Train” is also included on the LP “Berry-Go-Round”, which is to be released this autumn on Jansen Plateproduksjon. The two sides on the single represent the width of this band’s repertoire; an energetic beat number written by Chuck Berry, and a self-composed instrumental track – a jenka – which is what the kids nowadays (in the year 1963) crave. Peter Berry & The Shake Set have been true to the beat genre since 2003, and have previously released two LPs (“Wildberry Shake” and “For Goodness Shake”) and two EPs (“Berry Express” and “The More The Berrier”). The group consists of Peder Bernhardt (vocals/guitar), Per Øydir (bass), Bjarte Agdestein (guitar) and Thomas Martinsen (drums). Members of the band are individually also associated with groups such as Kåre & The Cavemen, The Indikation, Mono Lake, Howlin’ Mama, The Cliftones and The Apricot.”
