Crabs Shut cover for Weblog
There is a new single out by the Crabs, representing a new line-up and a new era for the band. Originally based in Eugene and then Portland, Oregon, the Crabs have called Anacortes, Washington their home since who knows when. Bass players and keyboard players have come and gone, but the core of the band has remained Lisa Jackson (drums) and Jonn Lunsford (guitar), who share the vocal spotlight. The Crabs have released four albums on K (see below).

After years of inactivity punctured by a few rare public appearances (mainly during the What-the-Heck and Anacortes Unknown Music Festivals), the Crabs have regroup adding Zinnia on keyboards and Vince on drums. The Shut the Door EP was recorded by Nich Wilbur and Phil Elverum at the Unknown, Anacortes, Washington.

It feels good to have the Crabs back in action!
