Due 12/01/18...For the many fans of 1960s music this retrospective album by The Reaction will come as something of a surprise. Very rarely do you come across a band that has managed so successfully to recreate the unique electric 12 string sound of the 60s American West Coast.

"Shapes Of Things" contains seven original well crafted, self penned songs, and four cover versions from The Yardbirds, The Creation, The Beatles and The Byrds.

Bristol based The Reaction were formed in the mid 1980s greatly influenced by the music and dress of the 60s, a combination that appealed to many of the Mod Revivalists of the day. With the young Mods enthusiastic support, The Reaction were quickly riding high on a wave of popularity and managed to gain much coveted Radio 1 airplay from the likes of John Peel and Andy Kershaw, but, their popularity was never properly harnessed.

Within three years they were gone, but not thankfully without leaving behind the tracks that are now available on this album.

The Reaction did not conform to everyone's idea of what a revivalist band of the time should be; whilst the likes of The Jam, Secret Affair and the Chords were all trying to push an 'angry young man' message, The Reaction were singing of a more idealistic world, a world of Sun, Surf and Sex and good at it they were too.
