TreaTmenT biography
North London based TREATMENT originally derived from the UK punk movement and evolved to a psychedelic/space rock band. When it all started Adam Blake (guitar), Clive Leach (bass) and Gordon Leach (guitar) were Grammar School boys influenced by punk bands but also Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come as one example. TREATMENT was ultimately born in 1979 when gathering Graham Cronin (drums) and Paul McWhinnie (keyboards).

Free rehearsals and several gigs established the band's identity through 1979/80 and the first studio songs emerged at that time. Then early in 1981 drummer Cronin left the band and was replaced by Paul Ross. The stable line-up for the 80/90s was now complete. Soon the first self-released single production 'Stamp Out Mutants / Doncha Know' saw the light of day. Including painted faces as one trademark the band intensively worked on the reputation as a demanded live band (f.e. Stonehenge 80 - 85), sometimes supported by Nik Turner and vocalist Emma Blake. Several cassettes were released during this time.

Another single 'Feeling Like A Ghost / Rowing Boat' followed in 1987 and a full vinyl album came out in 1989 (Number! Records) consisting of live recordings - all sought after collectors items today. They have also made contributions to various compilations over the course. It took another four years until an official studio production could be announced by Delerium Records. The highly recommended 'Cipher Caput' (1993) was the first album to be recorded with Ambisonic sound techology which is similar to Quadraphonic but didn't become popular finally.

A second album entitled 'How Much Is Enough' was recorded, but the demise of Delerium Records in the early 2000's caused problems. Now 2010 is the newly supposed year for this release. TREATMENT's music is a mixed bag - influenced by Hawkwind, Gong, Soft Machine, Pink Floyd, Ozric Tentacles to name a few. Psych/space with a tinge of anarchy, based around freaky experimental sounds, some punk leftovers and powerful forward-moving songs. This finally proves them an unique outfit.

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

4 stars TREATMENT are my initial new discovery in 2010. 'Cipher Caput' is their first official album (not counting several 7'' and cassette productions). Here they provide avantgarde infected space rock coloured with some jazzy and krautrock impressions. Or to describe it in another way: just mix up some Hawkwind and Gong inspirations and decorate this with a straightforward punk appeal here and there - the result is an impressing adventure really!

Now this points to a mixed bag of impressions. The Hidden Attack appears slowly ... but finally with intense when a heavy Hawkwind groove evolves by and by, backing soaring guitar and synths. This is followed by the straightforward rock n' roll adapted The Boing Song - punk light with a repetitive behaviour - one or two may say that this is a filler. Nah, it simply refers to the roots and therefore belongs to the band's unique attitude.

The next one is anything but Risky - a killer space rocker - grooving, the guitars are playfully placed and especially this reminds me at the Welsh Man band somehow. Sparkling piano at the end after the downfall - they know how to establish tension when preparing for the highlight Dissolving - this is a wonderful Gong inspired space song which starts as a ballad but moves into a groovy hurry up behaviour later. The vocals are blazingly close to Steve Winwood here. Well - this is a song which I can easily enjoy ten times in a row.

The following songs show the band adding more jazzy elements. Cigarettes And Starling is swinging with much easiness where Doubt and A Better Future For Britain drift into a more weird experimental direction with exceptional vocals and narration. All in all this hopefully makes it clear that 'Cipher Caput' holds a freaky cocktail of styles and the arrangements are enjoyable from the beginning to the end.

The band were famous Ón the wider area of London mostly, participated at several festivals (Stonehenge f.e.) and gave many exciting gigs including painted faces as one trademark. Sadly TREATMENT went into sleep in the 90s - however this is not the end of the story. Just to add some mystery finally - they have a complete album in the pipeline which is not released yet because of some trouble with the label's demise. Hopefully this will see the light of day this year.

Thanks to rivertree for the artist addition.
