SHOCK HEADED PETERS "Life Extinguisher" EP (UK, 1986)


It`s not a secret that Karl Blake & SHP are among the most LFDJ favourites. After posts of SEVERAL HEADED ENEMY (1992) & TENDERCIDE (1996), here it is LIFE EXTINGUISHER, EP. It released 1986, between first and second LPs. Musically closer to NOT BORN BEAUTIFUL (1985), it has though, its own autonomous style and, in a way, concentrates (and completes) in 4 more rock orientated songs the enigmatic avant-art-post punk character of SHP`s music, ...before band move with FEAR ENGINE(1987) to (less interesting), electric-hard-metal 70`s influences.

Thanks for posting this!! It's one of the missing pieces (and impossible to find anymore) of the SHP backcatalogue. Any chance that you have "The Imp of the Perverse" by The Underneath (Karl Blake) or Arkkon "Rotator" (David Knight) to post? Thanks again & peace.

I recommend the Kissing of Gods 12" as well for the b-sides. Thanks.
