As the hostess with the mostest, Shakin' Street's Fabienne Shine's rock credentials were impeccable. During much of the early 70s she was the consort of Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, travelling with and directly immersed in all their sweeping grandeur. It was this baptism by fire and, later, the encouragement of both Page and Robert Plant to write songs that fuelled her creative aspirations, setting in motion the path to forming her own band, namely Shakin' Street.
Of French-American origin, Fabienne's musical aspirations were further enhanced by guitarist Eric Levi who was piecing together a band in Paris. Eric had first thought about inviting the then unknown Pretenders star Chrissie Hynde to front the band before Fabienne made herself known. Named after an MC5 song from the album 'Back In The USA', they scored a small record deal with CBS in France and cut their debut album 'Vampire Rock', released in 1978. Sensing that the band needed an international boost Fabienne engineered a meeting with Blue Öyster Cult svengali Sandy Pearlman. Pearlman took the band under his wing, renegotiated their CBS deal in the USA, enlisted former Dictators guitarist Ross The Boss into the line-up and produced their self titled second album. Recorded in San Francisco and issued in 1980, the album is a blistering example of red-hot guitar driven hard rock with roots in the kind of devil may care shoulder shrugging of reprobates such as the New York Dolls, the Ramones, MC5 and Blue Öyster Cult. Hard Rock for sure, with plenty of attitude and guitars set-to-stun.
