about

Marc has requested that all of his profits from this release are given to the pro-LGBTQ+ organization, Zebra Coalition, which aims to protect at risk trans youth and many other marginalized folx in need.

The lesser known sequel (prequel? …equal?) to The Rocky Horror Picture Show gets the Marc With a C treatment on Needlejuice Records in 2021. Shock Treatment, the 1981 Richard O’Brien musical just may have been a stroke of ahead-of-its-time genius, satirizing reality television and celebrity culture to the point that the ridiculousness of the events in the film, well… they just might not be that far off these days.

Marc With a C, the Orlando-based singer-songwriter and lo-fi recording extraordinaire, created these covers of songs from Shock Treatment early in his career, on a broken 4-track recorder, with no intention of releasing them. In Marc’s words, “I didn’t know what I was doing. It got pretty weird and experimental.” More than a decade later, Marc decided to unleash these recordings and to his shock— these covers took a life of their own. Fans of Richard O’Brien’s work enjoyed them to the point that Marc found his way onto the official 2017 Shock Treatment blu ray release.

To top it off, the new Needlejuice reissue of Shock Treatment (Interpretations) comes with an all-new bonus track: a full-band version of “Bitchin’ in the Kitchen” recorded in 2017, as well as access to Marc’s commentary track to the film.

MARC'S NOTES:

Hello. Please enjoy these lo-fi interpretations of Shock Treatment songs from very, very early in my career. They are crude and date from my earliest time as Marc With a C, but they are very close to my heart.

THINGS TO KNOW:

1. These songs were home-recorded between 1999-2005 on a broken four-track. I didn't know what I was doing. It got pretty weird and experimental.

2. The recordings were made to make myself feel better during bouts of depression and weren't initially intended for release.

3. Many of the words and chords aren't even close to correct. There wasn't a plethora of Shock Treatment information available at the time, and I felt like the only person that liked the songs at all back then. I either learned by ear from a beat-up VHS or tried to sing the lyrics from my (faulty) memory.

4. I'm thrilled that these flawed bedroom recordings have found a home and a second life with people that may have been touched by Richard O'Brien's creations.

5. I still feel weird about the lyrics at the end of "Thank God I'm a Man", but... those are the words. Sigh.

6. Thank you for listening.

7. Does this bird belong to you?

-Marc

about

Marc With a C Orlando, Florida

For 21 years, Marc With a C was a persona portrayed by Marc Sirdoreus, bridging the gap between analog and digital worlds, growing away from arrested development in public, and using low fidelity pop music as communication.

On 1/16/21, Phase One ended, planned for over 10 years. As Marc began his “intermission” a mere coincidence saw him battle illnesses, born of cancer.

Phase Two coming soon!
