Song Notes

“Shockwave” is a cut of the middle part of “Tinseltown” as Tim explained when the song was released:

Ok here’s the “Shockwave” story, we did “Tinseltown” in the middlle of our demo sessions for Meltdown, then a few friends of mine started banging on about the middle section, so we stripped down the arrangement and recorded it with Nick Raskulinecz in LA and then Rich Costey mixed it. It was going to go on the album but in the end it didn’t fit the rawk vibe. Still, we reckoned it merits a release so here it is.
