Bio

Radio Shock Therapy is Alex Cameron, Khayl Picard, Paul Dyason, David Tagliabue and Edward Caunt. Born as quintuplets to the little known writer and Harvard alumni H.R Puffenstuff between the months of April and November 1778 into a world bathed in bloody Revolution, this band of Genevesians first came to prominence in the musical charts when they emerged as the key figures of a planned coup d'etat in the nation of Switzerland during the politically tumultuous winter of 1792. Exiled to St Elba until 1815, the art rock quintet with some difficulty wrote their first songs using the only tools at their disposal - electric guitars, piano, and a drum kit. This was truly the band's toughest hour. An early version of "The Best I Can Do", a song they would later take to the Kool Skools recording project in Melbourne, Australia in June 2009, made its way to the French Mainland via the "Gendarme", a Corsican merchant vessel transporting war elephants from North Africa. This rare track featured the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte on the washtub bass, and in some circles of the Parisian Bourgeois was considered to rival the works of its contemporary musical luminaries, the likes of which included Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt. Smuggled to fledgling colonial Australia through a prostitution ring controlled by the Bin Xai, the Radio Shock Therapy boys began to play venues in the swinging nightlife atmosphere of Cooberpedie, the "Vegas of the Antipodes". It was here that they first came into possession of the Crystal of Nyaruzan, an artifact that allows its owner supernatural control over the outcomes of the Academy Awards, a dreadful burden for these globally concerned but sexually frustrated fellows. Wait, no, that's just David. Freedom of Speech my fucking arse. Questions of sexual fulfillment aside, Radio Shock Therapy, with the assistance of their faithful alien companion Gizmo, has since risen through the ranks of the Zen Buddhist community of Albury, the central administrative city for the Buddhist faith in the entire Eastern Hemisphere, excepting all of Asia. Their unique brand of hackneyed post-modernist post-rock post-sanity music is of such poor quality that it is instantly accessible by people from all walks of life, universally united by their ability to laugh with malicious disdain at this excuse for "real music", although many true RST fans argue that this again is due to David's sexual impotency, and not the fault of the otherwise excellent band. The band has thus been attributed with the creation of global peace, an honour they accept most graciously. Radio Shock Therapy. Coming to a bargain bin near you.

Brilliant song from one of my favourite bands. Just waiting for more new stuff and that flipping EP. It is a joy to listen to, and I'm proud to have it in my Top 25 my played!

This is the sound i've been searching for my entire life. I'm in love with the spasticly timed rhythm, the intense drumming and the amazing vocal layering. One day hope to see you live, keep up the good work.
