Women was a four-piece post-punk band formed in Calgary in 2007. They recorded two albums, Women and Public Strain, both released on Chad VanGaalen’s Flemish Eye Records in Canada and on Jagjaguwar internationally. The group broke up after an onstage skirmish in Victoria, British Columbia at the end of October 2010. Since the break-up, members have gone on to play with acts like Fels-Naptha, Friendo, Porcelain Raft, and The Dodos. Unfortunately, guitarist Christopher Reimer died in his sleep this past February, dashing any hopes of a reunion. “Shaking Hand” is a track off their debut self-titled, and it’s among the tracks the group recorded for the album in VanGaalen’s basement. It’s one of the best songs on a great album, so check it out.
