Review: Shock Therapy - Tearin' Up The Road
Band: Shock Therapy
Album: Shock Therapy
Genre: Rockabilly
Review done by: Johnny Graves

I came across this cd from the Wreckingpit's Founder and Owner Roy. He told he this guy was emailing him asking if we could write a review on new cd, so i jumped at the chance to hear some new good music (thanks Neil for the cd). I pop in the cd and they had a unique sound which made me intrested in wanting to hear it. Shock Therapy is pretty weird band to determine their sound. To describe it all you need to do is mix Neo Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Surf and then in the end you get Shock Therapy. Led by Neil Thomas (guitar and vocals) and Mark Beckley (lead guitars) and Clive Perchard (standup slap bass) and Wayne Beauchamp (drums), ok enough with the introductions. The first song "Inside my Head" is classic Rockabilly at its best with Neil vocals blaring out meaningful lyrics. Like I said they are pretty weird band to describe how they sound, but if i had to say how they sound, I would have to say they sound like the Blazing Haley meets the 3 Bad Jacks. Anyways back to the music... Songs "Want that Gal" and "In the Shadows" are songs that i think everyone can relate to. Iam pretty sure many of us can relate to it. "Tightrope" is one of my favorite songs on the cd. It's rockabilly-surf hooks caught my attention from the first riff. A really good song. "Tearin' Up the Road" is another good song with some catchy type beats more along the line of surf or psychobilly. All their songs have some meaning to it.. and i think that was one of the reasons why i liked it, The other reason was for the simple fact that the whole album didn't sound the same and that it wasn't made of girl ballads like other Rockabilly albums, it actually has meaning in it. We need more albums like this one.
