Shoes are local here in Illinois but I discovered the Shoes in DC on WHFS and loved a few of their songs.

Saying that I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this band would be like saying that the Atlantic Ocean is just a tiny little bit wet. The first time I heard them was when the "Present Tense" album was out, during the summer before my sophomore year in high school. I was 14 and that was the year when I was really discovering different music and getting into a lot of the early new wave and power pop bands. The first time I heard "Too Late" on the radio, I was hooked. Sadly, I never got to see them live, but I have all of their albums on vinyl, and nearly 40 years later, I'm still in love with their music. Everyone should have a little Shoes in their musical life!

Uneven, but when they're good they're lots of fun to listen to. Thanks.

Awesome post people,I have two worn out copies of 'Present Tense" from my teenage years and never seen it on CD .Very grateful to hear this magic power pop album again, and the other stuff of Shoes too - those records never made it to New Zealand that I saw.
