Artificial horizon...

Little interesting news about Shoc Corridor other than the fact that it's an English band formed in 1982 and originally composed of Paul O’Carroll, Andy Garnham, Chris Davis and Nogi Prass.

A group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Holding treasure", single released in 1984.

For that reason alone, we had to devote this article to them.

To discover or rediscover.
