SHADES APART released their debut album in December 1988 on Wishingwell Records, followed by two EPs, Dude Danger and Neon, which caught the ear of DESCENDENTS’ Bill Stevenson. SHADES APART jumped at the chance to work with their proto-punk icon, and Mr. Stevenson (along with bandmate Stephen Egerton) became the producers of their next LP. 1995’s Save It. was the product of that union. The band found a new home on Revelation Records and toured North America several times in the next year, converting legions of new fans and garnering critical praise along the way.
