The Heads picture
The Heads biography
In the early 90s, Simon Price (guitars, voices) and Hugo Morgan (bass) have an occasional and fateful encounter in a record shop in Bristol Simon has worked a couple of days a week. They found in each other a same musical spirit for industrial, heavy, and especially psychedelic rock. Therefore it was not unnatural that they should form a stoner-psych rock outfit. The two of strong will at first hunted a guitarist Dave Spencer from another band and recruited Wayne Maskell as a drummer after some audition, local gigs, trial and error repeated. In 1991, at this moment The HEADS fired a noisy psychedelia.

The HEADS played plenty of gigs in a garage or a post-war prefab in Bristol and recorded some material that would be completed later but a paranoia by the 'haunted' prefab would compel Dave to leave them away (who knows whether it was true or not). Their persistent attempt to find a like-minded 'missing soul' filled up a space in their puzzle with Paul 'Rock Prof' Allen (keyboard, guitars, voices) and completed the perfectly current The HEADS. In 1994 they released out their first 7'' 'Quad' recorded relaxingly in the cellar and the boss of a record shop Replay, where Simon worked then, started Rooster Rock label for them.

Furthermore, they met up with Simon Keeler, headhunter label manager and finally could release their debut full album recorded in Dave Anderson's Foel studios in 1996.

Until 2009 they have shot ten 7'', seven albums, one EP, and two compilations toward us - highly motivated to seize the leadership of the UK psych/stoner rock scene on putting records out or on rare gigs still now.

Review by DamoXt7942

2 stars The HEADS with 20 coloured hair...?

This EP 33 - Part 1-20 gained a huge variety of material The HEADS had dropped on the ground as outtakes. As they have said on their website, 33 "features jams and weird stuff recorded on mini disc in our rehearsal room". Indeed, from here we can pick plenty of "sounds" - spacey and danceable grooves, keen repetitive metalslashes causing earache, synth-organised noises like female shouts, and a mischievous guitar solo of simply monotonous play, etc. etc.

To be funny, ANYWHERE we can drop a needle of the record player. That is, every beginning of the sounds should be absolutely natural, without any hesitation, and everything we can pick up on the EP should be The HEADS me, not kiddin'. But basically this EP is an eclectic picture of HEADSache. For all beginners of The HEADS, it's much better to enjoy some of their "real" albums surely. As a HEADSmania, I cannot recommend this terribly eccentric EP as a starter.

Oh, of course, HEADSmanias can be remarkably maniac. Lose your HEAD(S) like me.

P.S. I give this EP only 2 stars' evaluation for "normal" psychedelic / space rock fans. I love this much, though. :-)

Thanks to DamoXt7942 for the artist addition.
