Every Band That Played The Shock Theatre (except The Dents) by Paul Till.

Photo book

Photographer Paul Till has been shooting live music and album covers since the early '70s. This book compiles shots of every band that played at Toronto's "The Shock Theatre", a movie theatre that specialized in horror and science fiction films. They also opened their doors to the up and coming "new wave" of punk music. Each band has their own page set up as a collage with Paul's original notes like "The lead singer of The Ugly wore a mask because allegedly the police were after him." The list of bands included is incredible...

  • The Misfits (first show outside of NJ/NY!!!
  • The Skulls (pre- DOA and Subhumans)
  • The Curse
  • The Diodes
  • The Ugly
  • The Toyz
  • Brat
  • Cardboard Brains
  • The Swollen Members
  • Face
  • The Androids
  • The Viletones
  • Sylvain Sylvain
  • Marth and the Muffins
  • The Dishes

and some audience and other various shots. A must have for any fan of early Canadian punk or Toronto music history.
