GIMME GIMME SHOCK TREATMENT
This is half of side 2 of the third SHOCK TREATMENT demo. I've left off the completely unnecessary bits, like "Blitzkreig Bop," or the "Pretty Vacant" cover you can hear them rambling drunkenly about at the start of the first track. Good studio stuff, but I'm totally confused by the super mellow shoegazer sound of "Stone's Throw Away" and "Civilisation," these are songs you might expect at the end of the band's career, but SHOCK TREATMENT was still delivering pretty raw Bristol style damage three years after these recordings. I suppose everyone has a sensitive side, right? I also spared you the almost 10 minute alcohol drenched live version of "Wild Thing." Fave tracks: "Droid," "Glue," and "Gorge & Vomit."
