Shemboid is the artistic alter ego of respected Chester singer/songwriter Shem Sharples and was active from 2004 to 2015.

The concept was very experimental in nature and forms a bit of a missing link between Shem’s wild DIY garage days with cult Chester band Rev Rev around the 80’s/90’s/00’s and the musical craftsmanship of his later solo releases

This is a re-release of the 2004 debut, a unique blend of guitar driven warped out, ambient psyche from an artist way ahead of his time.

As a massive fan of all of Shem’s work, I felt the world has finally caught up with what he was doing 16 years ago and wanted it to reach a new appreciative audience.

The release is available to stream across the usual haunts as well as available to download at the SL bandcamp page.

We’ll be taking pre-orders for CD’s early next week as well as providing a list of local stockists in strictly limited numbers.





This is the first video from the release, ‘It Was Already Like That Honest’

The next Shemboid release will be on the 29th of May.

We’ll be also releasing albums & EP’s from other local artists in 2020.
