Fabienne Shine was born in North Africa and was raised in Paris.She began as a model and appeared in Italian films.
It was Nico (Velvet Underground) who opened the door to the music world for Fabienne. Fabienne fell in love with rock and roll.Fabienne began singing, playing guitar and composing. She met Johnny Thunders in Paris when the New York Dolls were performing. She jammed with Thunders. She followed him to New York City. Their relationship endured. Johnny Thunders wrote his most beautiful song "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory" for Fabienne.A true gypsy, Fabienne continued to travel the world playing guitar and singing. She met Led Zeppelin in XXXXXXXXXX. Jimmy Page and Robert Plant jammed with Fabienne. They told her that she had talent and encouraged her to form a band.
Fortunately, Fabienne took their advice. She went to France and formed a band with Eric Lewy, Corrine Marienneau, Jean-Lou Kalinowski and Louis Bertignac (Telephone). The band was renamed "Shakin Street" (after the MC5 song) by Marc Zermatti when they appeared at the first Mont de Marsan festival in France, sharing the bill with the Damned and Eddie and the Hot Rods. Shakin Street was never a punk band. They developed as a band at the same time as the British punk bands and shared bills with the Clash and the Stranglers as well. Fabienne's photo graced the cover of Sounds.Always traveling, Fabienne met Phillip Shine in Bombay, India. He became the group's manager. Fabienne says that if it were not for Phillip, she never would have made it so quickly. Phillip made the band professional. Phillip Shine gave Fabienne his name.Shakin Street was signed to CBS and released "Vampire Rock." They toured with Nico as the opening act.
Their follow up album, the self titled "Shakin Street" was produced Sandy Pearlman (The Clash ,Pavlov's dogs and Blue Oyster Cult). Now with Ross The Boss (The Dictators) on guitar, they toured the world for a full year sharing bills with Blue Oyster Cult, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Cheap Trick, Molly Hatchet, Journey, Reo Speedwagon, Heart and Sammy Hagar.
In 1980 she married the mysterious Damon Edge who founded the legendary experimental / industrial band Chrome. Fabienne collaborated with Damon on several Chrome albums. Her haunting vocals appear on the classic Chrome album "Third From The Sun." When Damon moved to Paris, Fabienne introduced him to her band and a new version of Chrome was born.After she and Damon separated, she studied astrology in Paris for four years with the France's most respected astrologers. Fabienne has an intense interest in the planets.
Fabienne continued to compose songs and nurtured her next project. Jean-Lou Kalinowski co-wrote four songs with Fabienne for her 1997 release "No Mad Nomad." The album's title refers to both her love of travel and her late husband. This album remains in print and is available on cdbaby.com
Shakin Street reunited for a concert in 2004. This same year, she was reunited with Chrome's co-founder legendary guitarist Helios Creed. She co-wrote two songs with Helios and developed a beautiful version of "All Tomorrow's Parties" for her late friend Nico. The album "Deep Blue Love Vacuum" is considered to be one of Helios Creed's best. In 2006 she toured with Helios and performed at the SXSW in Austin. They played three sold out shows at the conference.
After the tour, Fabienne continued to compose new material for her latest album. Renaissance woman, Fabienne has once again reinvented herself and explores a number of styles yet she remains true to herself. Her intense interest in the planets lead her to name her band. Fabienne Shine and The Planets. The new album features the musicians that Fabienne considers to be her family. Drummer Jean-Lou Kalinowski was 15 years old when he joined Shakin Street. He produced and composed two songs for the new album. Ross The Boss (The Dictators ,Manowar ,brain surgeons) plays guitar.Albert Bouchard and Joe Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult) play drums ans bass Norbert Krief from the the French group "Trust" is another "guitar hero in the family. Fabienne composed five songs with an enigmatic musicien , Balasz Antal who plays guitar, keyboards and sitar. Moogy Klingman (Todd Rundgren) plays Hammond organ. Dave Shultz (English Beat and Berlin) also plays keyboards. The album was recorded in L.A., New York and Paris.
