U Gotta Shake Something is an unreleased track (mostly instrumental with some chants) recorded on 30 December 1985 (the same day Eric Leeds added overdubs to A Couple Of Miles and that Voodoo Who, Most Strongest Whiskey and Damn were recorded) at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California. The track is introduced by a DJ (played by Eric Leeds) stating "You are listening to WOOL, your alternative music station. Here’s the brand new one by The Flesh, 'U Gotta Shake Something'". It was not, however, included on the 22 January 1986 configuration of The Flesh album, which was ultimately abandoned. The track has an audience sound dubbed onto it throughout the track. Other than the similarity in title and the chanted phrase "you got to shake something", this track is unrelated to Shake!
