Steve Treatment - Heaven Knows (Juvenile Wrecks)

This ones a real gem, Steve Treatments second single and for me his best. Once you start playing these tracks you will struggle to get them out of your mind, especially the b-side "Step Inside a worn out shoe", you will be singing this all the time.

Steve Treatment was a massive Marc Bolan and T Rex fan and you can hear the influence on both tracks on this single.

I was a little upset when I recorded this as I had placed the single in a clear plastic sleeve to protect the cover, and when i went to take the cover out to scan it, I found it had stuck to the plastic, so therefore I had to scan in the sleeve, hence the not so brilliant scan. if anyone has a better scan I will replace them. Oh well it's the music that counts so enjoy.

More etching trivia on this one. On a-side: it says "I wish I was a spaceman" and on the b-side: "But I'm a spaceman". Don't know what that's about, but I do like finding those little messages.

Singer: Steve Treatment
Label: Backbone Records
Year: 1979
1. Heaven Knows (Juvenile Wrecks)
2. Step Inside A Worn Out Shoe

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

If you like this then its good news, as all Steve treatments material, including a new album is available on the excellent Topplers site (also visit this for some classic Nomen free downloads).
