Le Shok is a new wave inspired garage punk band from Long Beach, California. Originally formed in 1997 as a reaction to the sad and pathetic state of ‘90s punk, at a time when the majority of the band worked at the legendary Zed Records shop.
With influences such as The Fall, Germs, and The Screamers, the band made their mark with a slew of outrageously wild live shows and a snotty, yet highly infectious lo-fi sound.
The band released a stockpile of singles (including split singles with Ink & Dagger, Electric Frankenstein, and The Stitches, while only recording one album, We Are Electrocution, recorded in 1999 and originally released on the now-defunct GSL label.
In 2018, the original line-up of Le Shok returned to action for a special Burger Boogaloo performance, to coincide with the re-release of the “We Are Electrocution” album on Burger Records.
