Former Shane Champagne and Pink Cadillac singer David Champagne led the Massachusetts quartet Treat Her Right, whose style encompassed rock & roll, rockabilly, blues-rock, and swamp-rock, all with post-punk attitude.
Champagne also sported a taste for avant-garde cover songs, including material by James Blood Ulmer and Captain Beefheart. Treat Her Right released its debut album in 1986; their 1989 Tied to the Tracks featured bassist Mark Sandman singing lead on several songs. Following the breakup of Treat Her Right, Sandman went on to form bass/sax/drums trio Morphine. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi
