Johnny "Shellhead" and Jen Shag, two halves of Brooklyn indie duo Shellshag, got their individual starts in the '90s San Francisco D.I.Y. scene, while running the infamous Starcleaners Warehouse. This historical music co-op in the Mission District was formerly home base to The Residents, The Dandy Warhols, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. Mixing No Age-type noise punk and Moldy Peaches-type innocence, they toured incessantly, and gained notice with energetic sets and a unique presence: Jen drummed while standing up and Johnny ended sets with explosive guitar feedback. Their first album was recorded by Pavement's Gary Young in 2004. - Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
