STEVE TREATMENT - All Dressed For Tomorrow LP (Messthetics 1201/Munster) classic '78-79 DIY'n'roll

LP with large 4-page insert
STEVE TREATMENT - All Dressed For Tomorrow LP (Messthetics #1201/Munster 352): the LONG-overdue first LP from Steve Treatment: 16 tracks, all completely re-mastered. Glorious "raw, unkempt, experimental glam rock magic", featuring his three singles/EPs from 1978-79, three additional studio tracks from 1979 recorded for his abandoned LP, plus a previously unheard 1977 take on the theme from 'Fireball XL5'.

Steve Treatment and Nikki Sudden met in 1976 and spent the greater part of 1977-78 hanging around together at Marc Bolan's headquarters in New Bond Street, seeing bands, and dressing up and busking with 'Christeen' Isherwood at the Gloucester Road tube station, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, and the Park Lane Hilton, before Steve recorded his first EP, backed by the Swell Maps - on their Rather label.

The LP insert comes with liner notes (9000+ words) drawn from Steve's diaries, fresh recollections from Christine Isherwood and Nick Welsh [later Selecter, Bad Manners], gleanings from Nikki's memoirs, plus dozens of never-before-seen color photos, photo-booth strips, and other artifacts to accompany Steve's colorful interactions with Marc Bolan, the 'Maps, the Moors Murderers, Derek Jarman, Captain Sensible, assorted Blitz Kids, and many others. Essential DIY.
"All my songs are 'A' sides." -S.T.

The ST LP (and the Psykik Volts 45) kick off Messthetics' long-planned partnership with Munster Records, with muchmuch more vinyl to come!

LPs will be sent sealed unless you ask that the disk be separated from the jacket so that seams do not split in the mail. Priority Mail postage to the West Coast of the US is now $9.95: customers from the Midwest and Northeast will be refunded $2-4 for any extra savings. (We can ship LPs outside North America, but, frankly, it will be cheaper and faster if you order it in Euros from our partners at Munster. Thanks!)

Sample tracks (somewhat scruffier audio from the old 2xCDR):
'Danger Zone'
'Tempest Fashion Baby'
'Heaven Knows'
'Carve My Name'

Steve Treatment completists may still require the 25 'A' Sides / Your Friends Are In The News' double CDR which features an ear-boggling 140+ minutes of ST (including most of the LP tracks, although the mastering's a little more primitive on those), and later highlights up through the early 1990s. You may add one to your LP order for $10 (pay the full $14 and then choose 'no postage required for this order" instead of regular media mail shipping). More recent ST efforts are on the celebrated Topplers label.
