The Shades of Knight / Hippie Stew

The Shades of Knight are Kelly O'Shea and Jackie Don Loe (Guitarist and  Buddy Magazine Texas Tornado). They also play as an acoustic duo called Hippie Stew. The two met in 1979 at W.T. White High School and shared an interest in Garage and Psychedelic. In 2019 Kelly decided he wanted to record a true garage record and wrote a song for the A-Side of the record. The B-Side is an obscure cover song done by the Cynics and featured on Teen-a Go-Go a movie made by Melissa Kirkindall. The song is written by T-Bone Burnett. The record is available on a limited edition vinyl. Hippie Stew released an album in 2018 and is available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, and Amazon Music.
