how I found this site
Google search on 'Unclaimed Ganz'
I used to the bass player in a band called The
Miracle Workers. We used to play "Run From Home" regularly as
part of our live show. In 1984-85 we went to Los Angeles several times to
play and record our first LP. I was fortunate to go to an Unclaimed rehearsal.
I also saw them live at Al's Bar, (opening act was Redd Cross). Best thing
was that at two of our LA shows we got Shelley up on stage with us to sing
"Run From Home" ! Also did shows with The Long Ryders and Thee
Forgiven, but thats a different story. The Unclaimed were really a great
band. Search out their Moxie EP, the Hysteria EP and the Atilla the Hun LP.
Garage band doesn't get any better than Shelley Ganz and The Unclaimed.
Shelley is also a great guy, despite his reputation as being hard to get

Shelley Ganz is criminally underestimated.About time
some courageous fellow put his stuff out on cd,even the Twinkeyz had this
opportunity...Anyway,the 6 -song LP remains a mystery even 20 years after
it was issued.With the possible exception of the Sonics,never has a band
sounded so raw& primitive.Forget the Cramps,they were the real cavemen!

no more wars
My band(The Point) opened for the Unclaimed in 1983
at the sleaziest of stinkholes, the cathey de grande.When the night was
over we went to get paid and the `management' told us the opening band
never got paid,get our asses out now if we ever want to play there again.We
told Shelley,and he stormed up to the `manager' and barked "Stop
fucking these guys around pay them!They earned it!"We got our 45
bucks.God bless you,Shelley,wherever you are!

Yeah, Shelly, what a guy. He came up to me after a
gig with my band the Untold Fables. He liked my bass playing and he invited
me to sit in on a session. After it was over he tried to convince me to
join his band and quit mine. Yeah whatever Shelly...........

I never knew what the Unclaimed were up to in their
latter days. I hope this site can be a way of finding out. And if Matt or
Rich or Shelley read this, write me, okay?

Great site. I had the pleasure of meeting Shelley,
seeing the Unclaimed ca. 1984-86 when I was in the Miracle Workers. We used
to play 'Run From Home', and in LA, Shelley joined us onstage singing, with
us backing him up ! Great band - get all the records !!

Great move to dedicate a site to Shelley. One of the
best neon-garage masterminds still not been beaten. Try out his music as
soon as you can. Killer. Thanks for the tribute! Hans
