Real Name:
The Schock Treatment
TST was formed 1977 in Västerås by Jarmo "JM" Mäkkeli, Karri "Korre" Mäkkeli (Zäba) and Nandor Hegedüs (Nalle), but then named Panic and later on The Rats (Rots?). The name TST (The Schock Treatment) came from Ramones 2nd LP and the song "Gimme schock treatment". The band played a lot at Bryggis in their hometown Västerås before the first 7" came out (Vås Punx), then followed a numerous of gigs around in Sweden. Then came out the No Teenage Future 12" and TST took part in an live recording for national radio P3’s show Ny Våg (New Wave), it resulted in an LP which to put it briefly was called T.S.T. By this time a new drummer had replaced Karri for the recording of the album, then followed another Maxi (Sweden 12"), the band then changed members in a couple of rounds before the last LP came in '85 ("All Throught The Nights" LP), where Karri had come back as drummer. After approximately 2 years TST departed and was reformed to "Grim Jacks", to eventually form Dynamite Wasteland by Jarmo.
