The band are perhaps best known for their critically acclaimed albums 'Present Tense' and 'Tongue Twister', together praised by Allmusic in particular as setting them "apart from other bands of their era" with "delicious melodies". When MTV went on the air on August 1, 1981, the channel aired four of Shoes' videos: "Too Late", "Tomorrow Night", "Cruel You" and "In My Arms Again". Thus, the programmers chose Shoes to be one of the first bands to be shown on MTV. Their total discography includes: the 'Heads or Tails EP' (1974), 'One in Versailles' (1975), 'Bazooka' (1975), 'Black Vinyl Shoes' (1977), 'Present Tense' (1979), 'Tongue Twister' (1981), 'Silhouette' (1984), 'Boomerang' (1982), 'Shoes Best' (1987), 'Stolen Wishes' (1990), 'Propeller' (1994), 'Fret Buzz' (1995), 'As Is' (1996), 'Double Exposure' (2007), and 'Ignition' (2012). Band member Jeff Murphy also released a solo album titled 'Cantilever' in 2007. 'Ignition', their first album in 18 years, was released on August 14, 2012, and it included 15 all-new songs: " Head vs.
Heart" " The Joke's On You" " Diminishing Returns" " Heaven Help Me" " Maybe Now" " Wrong Idea" " Sign of Life" " Hot Mess" " Where Will It End" " Say It Like You Mean It" " I Thought You Knew" " Nobody To Blame" " Out of Round" " In On You" " Only We Remain" Shoes formed their own record label, Black Vinyl Records, and owned and operated their own commercial recording studio (Short Order Recorder) from 1983 to 2004.
