    I love this band. Daemon lover has to be one of their best songs ever, if not the best. It is terribly underrated.

    for me, very much like burnedouttorch. except my intro to Shocking Blue (other than Venus/Hot Sand 45) was about a yr back picking up a copy of Shindig magazine with SH cover story. I then bought their vinyl lp's At Home, Scorpio's Dance, 3rd album and especially Attila - such a excellent album that is! hooked! better re-discovering this great band belatedly than having missed out.

    I just now discovered this band. I was watching an infomercial for one of those CD compilations where they put a bunch of one hit wonders together and Venus came up by shocking blue with a small clip. Watching the clip I saw and heard something different in there sound (a raw straight beat, driving vocals and sound) so I checked them out. Love buzz came on and I was like "Sh*t, I thought Nirvana wrote this song?!?" after that it was one great song after another. I'm 44yrs old and over the past 5 years kind of given up on finding anything new. But music surprises you like that. I found something new except it was made 40 years ago. I FOUND A NEW GOOD BAND!!!
