18/01/2015 – Greenhouse of Terror-Third Class Heaven (1985)

Post-Punk quartet’s debut EP still sounds fresh and exciting 30 years later



Greenhouse of Terror were like a lot of bands in the mid 1980’s. They released cutting edge music, then broke up before a sequel could be released. All they have to show that they even existed is one 12” EP and the memories of the people who saw them.



The five tracks were a mixture of Post-Punk, Indie and good old fashioned rock and roll! The tracks were melodic and rhythmic, with driving bass and angular guitar. If you’re thinking of Adam Ant-Car Trouble and you’re on the right lines.





Rumour has it that a reformation gigs are on the cards and new material is being written and recorded. This is great news and a follow up to the Greenhouse of Terror EP is long overdue. All that’s left to do really is re-play the original five tracks for the umpteenth time and hope they haven’t lost any of their original charm and ferocity.

    What a fun post! I love music and am old enough to appreciate the carryover from the punk scene. Great idea sharing these tracks and giving the readers a bit of education for the day, I like. 😉

    • What did you like about the track? What punk bands did you used to like?

        Thanks for posting this. I’m the bass player for the Greenhouse. We’ve actually reformed and recorded an album (in 2 days!) I don’t know when it will see the light of day though. Hopefully soon.
