About This Act

From AllMusic:

The roots of Milwaukee power pop outfit the Shivvers lie in In a Hot Coma, one of a series of local bands pairing bassist Scott Krueger and drummer Jim Richardson -- Krueger's girlfriend, aspiring singer/songwriter Jill Kossoris, also played keyboards with the group in its final months. After In a Hot Coma split in 1978, Krueger formed the Orbits, while Richardson signed on with local punk unit the Lubricants — meanwhile, Kossoris teamed with guitarist Mike Pyle to form the Shivvers, and when their respective bands dissolved, Krueger and Richardson joined the lineup as well. Guitarist Jim Eannelli completed the Shivvers' roster, which honed a repertoire of pop classics both familiar and obscure — Kossoris' originals rounded out the set list, and the group soon entered the studio to record her "Teen Line," issued on the Fliptop label in 1980.
