You may have heard Sshh’s cover of “Dominos” (originally performed by The Big Pink) on The Underground Collective. It comes from a concept cover album (Issues) and below is everything you could possibly want to know about the album, minus what the songs sound like. For that, you’ll have to tune in Sunday nights from 6-8p (or you could buy the album since the proceeds benefit Teen Cancer America, but more on that below)


SSHH Issues:


Issues is an album of cover songs compiled and performed by Zach Starkey on guitar and SSHH on vocals.  


Zack Starkey is the drummer for Oasis and The Who, son of Ringo Starr.

Each song on Issues features the rhythm section from the original band they are covering.  It started as way to bring authenticity to each song and stuck throughout the album as a complete concept.


Artists included on Issues include:

            Twiffy and Gil Sharon - Marilyn Manson

            Paul Cool and Glen Matlock - Sex Pistols

            Dave Ruffy and Megs - Ruts

            Darrne Moonie and Simone - Primal Scream

            Martin Chambers - The Pretenders

            Mick Ralphs - Mott the Hoople

            Clem Burke - Blondie

            Kenney Jones - The Small Faces

            Dale Davis and Nathan Allen - Amy Winehouse band

            Santa Davis and Fully Fullwood - Peter Tosh Word Sound & Power (The Wailers/The Rolling Stones)

All of the songs were chosen by the band for the influence they had on their sound.

“Dominos” is the first single from Issues and was originally recorded by THE BIG PINK.


“Dominos” is a duet with SSHH and Robbie Furze of Big Pink with Twiggy and Gil Sharone from Marilyn Manson (producer Nick Launay).  


The Marilyn Manson members made the suggestion to do something other than a Marilyn Manson cover.


All proceeds from Issues go to Teen Cancer America


Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who are the driving force behind Teen Cancer America. After over a decade working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK, the duo decided to bring their passion across the pond and make a difference in the lives of teens and young adults with cancer in the United States. Teen Cancer America partners with hospitals throughout the United States to develop specialized facilities and services for teens and young adults with cancer. We build teen friendly environments, enhancing the hospital experience. We develop standards for age-targeted care, improve collaboration between pediatric and adult specialists and enable dedicated research to improve outcomes and survival.
