Brakes locking on

Had the missus complain that the rear brakes locked on and she had to shunt backwards and forwards followed by a bang of the brakes releasing; at the weekend Took the drums off both sides and cleaned out the drums themselves with brake cleaner, cleaned out the hub area and rubbed over the brakes shoes and made a slight chamfer on the edges of the shoes with some emery paper, all of which I might add were crudded up with brake dust etc, put it all back together and thought jobs a good 'un!! until!! yesterday they locked on again, but not as bad i.e not quite the bang as before, any ideas what is causing it other than maybe fitting some new brake shoes on? any help appreciated guys.
Cheers Pete
