LeShimmer:  An Early New Wave / Brit Pop Band
Coming out of Dillinger, Steve Erickson (Guitar & Vocals), Joe Brown (Bass and Vocals), and Lloyd Poole (Drums and Vocals), added "Beck like” NW Guitar Phenom Lee Elliott, to create a much more aggressive avant-garde dance style.   The band was known for taking very obscure, early rock & roll numbers and rearranging them in an eclectic dance beat style.  Erickson continued to write a number of strong original pieces for the band, while Brown added a few original pieces and expanded his arrangement styles.

This 4 piece band worked frequently, in the growing number of dance clubs, mostly in PNW & Vancouver BC.
