Electroshock Therapy Short Info

Inspired by the counter-culture movement of the late 1960's, and with a sound akin to the West Coast bands of the day, you could easily be mistaken into believing that an intense acid trip had sent them deep into the space–time continuum, before dumping them here, nearly half a century into the future.

"Final support comes in the kaleidoscopic form of Electroshock Therapy. Inviting us on a journey back in time to the era of West Coast sixties-psych, their music stays true to the likes of Love and Jefferson Airplane while also channelling Stooges and MC5 garage. They’ve got the look – paisley shirts, long hair and big-bodied Gretsch guitars – but they also have the sound.

Their set is tight and relentless, with songs that are raw and robust even through the slower paced and low-key numbers, Singer/guitarist Tom Lockett’s voice is after the style of Anton Newcombe and Ty Segall, giving their music an interesting contemporary update from its early-psychedelic roots. Dan Lockett gives us thick and fuzzy bass, while Nick Simpson demonstrates some nice guitar work with edgy shoe-gaze licks – all to the beat of Tom Thornley’s crashing drums. 2015 is looking to be a big year for these guys."
