Wooden Shjips biography
WOODEN SHJIPS were started off 2003 in San Francisco by Erik 'Ripley' Johnson (guitar, vocals). He had the intention to form a group of non-musicians for the purposes of creating some innovative music. The idea was that untrained players would have a brand new outlook on music and could bring something fresh to the table. Dusty Jermier (bass) originally was recruited to play sax for example, an instrument he'd never picked up before. The band's first incarnation simply had a lack of interest in playing live, they hardly bothered looking for gigs.

When additionally comprising drummer Omar Ahsanuddin and Nash Whalen (organ) they evolved to a more productive lineup and an initial self-released 10 vinyl 'Shrinking Moon For You' came out in 2006. Their self-titled debut album, released by Portland based label Holy Mountain, followed one year later and earned some rave reviews. Simultaneously they also started to offer their music live now.

WOODEN SHJIPS provide rather minimalistic jamming songs which feature a repetitive garage respectively kraut rock behaviour and spacey organ and guitars. The band's discography counts two compilations and several other single productions in the meanwhile. The sophomore full album entitled 'Dos' was released in 2009.

Wooden Shjips Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by stefro
Prog Reviewer

4 stars More helpings from the same psychedelic bowl, 'Dos' picks up from it's eponymously-titled predecessor without blinking, unleashing another five-star torrent of feedback-drenched, motorik-grooved acid-rock. It's almost as if this San Francisoc-based group recorded an epic double-album and then spliced it in half, but, despite the similarities, 'Dos' is still an outstanding slice of 21st century psychedelic rock. Echoes of Neu!, Hawkwind and Dead Meadow can be heard underneath the cyclical din, but in truth Wooden Shjips have shaped a grizzly sound that is very much their own. Both their debut and 'Dos' positively drip with a mystically psychedelic, fuzz-toned blues-rock vibe, which should appeal not only to stoner-rock fans but also to prog-heads, psych-freaks and fans of psychotropic madness. STEFAN TURNER, LONDON, 2010

Review by stefro
Prog Reviewer

5 stars One of a clutch of new psychedelic groups for the 21st century, San Francisco's 'Wooden Shjips' have produced some of the most mind-meltingly cosmic music ever heard. Over the course of 'Wooden Shjips' five, long, meandering and deeply-trippy tracks, the group unleash a torrent of cyclical, motorik-grooved acid-rock that doesn't sound unlike raga-rock duo Clark Hutchinson jamming with Jimi Hendrix and Klaus Schulze in a smoky, incensed-filled Indian palace. Indeed, final track 'Shine Like Suns' is a beautifully-constructed and densely-mystical epic that seems to last forever but yet somehow never gets dull, as the constanly-reverberating, feedback-drenched electric-guitars pound their way through reams of LSD-fused psychedelic rock and back again via calmer, serener moments of almost-celestial calm. Fans of Dead Meadow, The Black Angels and Hawkwind may find much to admire in both this eponymously-titled debut and the group's excellent follow-up 'Dos', whilst the group have also released two compilation albums of early, rare singles and b-sides entitled 'Volume 1' and, un-surprisingly, 'Volume 2' that are well-worth owning if you like you're psychedelia raw, epic, bluesy and feedback-smothered.

Wooden Shjips Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

3 stars WOODEN SHJIPS offer a hybrid of garage and space rock here which is quite interesting. Released on vinyl by Holy Mountain label 'Dos' has an approx. length of nearly 40 minutes. This San Francisco based band started in 2003 as an experiment of head Erik 'Ripley' Johnson whose guitar style is very psychedelic basically. Since 2006 they have a stable lineup, produced several recordings and earned some rave appraisals from indie/alternative as well as progressive rock reviewers.

On 'Dos' you will find rather minimalistic songs which feature a repetitive garage/kraut rock behaviour based on a rumbling bass, stoic drums and plain vocals. Even the organ does not step out of line with a decent trancy input. I'm sure this as such is not a challenge for many prog music lovers. What makes it big are Johnson's guitar contributions which are a special experience for space rock fans in my humble opinion.

Down By The Sea might be the best example taken from this album - a jam backed by a simple and hypnotic rock' n' roll drive. The guitar though is not from this planet which makes this music quite unique all in all. Ripley Johnson contrasts with a fuzzy and spacey solo excursion which is really impressing. The closing relaxed Fallin' on the other hand shows him reorienting to his colleagues and cannot touch my soul.

'Dos' is worked out in the Hawkwind and krautrock tradition, stylistically comparable to bands like F/I and The Vocokesh.in parts. And several descriptions pointing out a garage rock infected sound are not wrong too with good reason. A good album, however I'm missing some variety and a stronger experimental approach a bit over the course of time.
