Cruel Shoes' self titled CD is an impressive recording debut for the popular Victoria band.

Ernie Niederer (lead vocals, rhythm guitar,blues harp), Dave Cornock (vocals, lead guitar), Doug Thorsteinson (bass guitar), and Steve Sawatsky (drums) rock their way through 11 covers and originals.
The songs are a a mix of nostalgic blasts from the past and original tracks are, as the boys put it, "played from within".

Cruel Shoes has been playing the local scene for years and have proven their ability to put on a great live show.

The CD is available for 13$ at Turntable Records and Lyle's Place.
