Eels cancer for the cure

Electro-Shock Blues Show is a live album by Eels released on tour in 2002.



The fifteen tracks on this album were recorded at six different venues. According to the album's liner notes, the first ten tracks were recorded "somewhere in England" during December 1998 while the Eels were a support act for the band Pulp. The other five tracks are brought in from selected performances from around Europe and the United States:

  • 11 – Groningen, Netherlands, September 30, 1998
  • 12 – Stockholm, Sweden, October 5, 1998
  • 13–14 – Paris, France, September 21, 1998
  • 15 – Indianapolis, Indiana, United States, October 29, 1998
  • Track listing

    7. "Novocaine for the Soul" (E and Mark Goldenberg) – 4:22
    8. "Not Ready Yet" (Jon Brion and E) – 12:58
    9. "Last Stop: This Town" (E and Simpson) – 2:52
    10. "Everything's Gonna Be Cool This Christmas" (E) – 3:00

    15. "Climbing to the Moon"/"My Beloved Monster"/"My Girl" (E/E/Smokey Robinson and Ronald White) – 15:05

    The last track features a hidden bonus song, another version of "My Beloved Monster", which follows a long silence after the end of "Climbing to the Moon"; the track then segues into The Temptations' classic soul hit "My Girl". However, during the chorus, E replaces the words "My girl" with "My beloved monster". The rhythm to the other recording of "My Beloved Monster" is from The Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
