Profile Wisconsin based hard rock outfit Shut Up & Drive acted in the mid 90s releasing two album. Their debut titled “Driven” came out in 1994 gain minor success and airplay characterized as one the best US hard rock albums. Their second effort we present here “Control” came out in 1997 continue in the same vein, hard rock straight from the 80s with great guitar work, good crunchy vocals top notch production and sharp compositions, direct, full with groove, feeling and relevance.  The guitarist is amazing.  He plays like Nuno Bettencourt, George Lynch, and Andi Timmons. This band was so good that they should have been signed. This is a must have album (both actually) for all fans of bands like Tyketto, Roxy Blue, Skid Row, and Van Halen.
