REVIEW: The Shrine – “Bless Off”

From the moment I started listening to The Shrine’s “Bless Off”, I knew instinctively that I was listening to it on the wrong speakers.

At 49 years old, Duane is still skating better than a lot of people out there, of any age. He’s also been in / continues to be in several bands, most famously the U.S.
