Hot Head Show biography
HOT HEAD SHOW have turned a lot of heads since their debut 'THE LEMON LP' reached the ears of American bass legend Les CLAYPOOL, at whose request they spent much of 2011 touring Europe and the USA with cult superstars PRIMUS. The international fanbase they achieved that year demanded that they return to Europe for two startlingly successful tours as headliners in 2012, leading to their signing with RBL Records in Italy and Noisolution in Germany, in addition to their longstanding relationship with Tentacle Entertainments in the UK and North America.

Since then, they've sold out both rock clubs and jazz clubs, having been variously labeled ''mind-bending art-pop/avant-jazz/flamenco-punks'' (Artrocker), ''ironic, surreal alt-folky avant-ska'' (Rumore, IT), ''A whiplash of melodically tense, undulating avant-funk-rock-blues'' (The Rumpus, USA), ''Maddening'' (Kerrang), ''Inherently Sexy'' (Notion) and worse. For the band themselves, the genre classification of their sophomore album 'Perfec't is simple ''It's Maximalist Avant-Bang''.

Perhaps this is what you'd expect from a band whose singer/guitarist is a former film-editor whose parents are Sonja KRISTINA of CURVED AIR and Stewart COPELAND of THE POLICE. A band whose drummer held a residency as a composer at the Royal Festival Hall when he was 22, and whose lead bassist is the oft-naked, messianic frontman of fellow Tentacle signing SUPER BEST FRIENDS CLUB.

Thei 2013 album, 'PERFECT' has been described as a mixture of TALKING HEADS, THE BIRTHDAY PARTY, FRANK ZAPPA, DEERHOOF, MICACHU, SCREAMIN' JAY HAWKINS, and every artist who's tried to totally redefine their medium.

Review by Second Life Syndrome

2 stars Well, I honestly don't have much to say about this complete waste of time called 'Perfect'. This new album from Hot Head Show is one of the worst things my ears have ever heard. These UK 'rockers' have a unique approach, that's for sure. But you know what? That's not always a good thing.

"Perfect" is a random bunch of meaningless songs about meaningless subjects. Yes, we get to hear songs about kitties and sex (not in the same song), doctors and rebel girls, and sex and animals (yes, in the same song). In other words, it's juvenile garbage. One song even features a chorus where the vocalist simply plays around with the word, "Meow".

'But,' you say, 'I only care about the music'. Okay, then. Let's talk about that. This album has some interesting style. It is VERY bass-driven. At times, I thought there were multiple bassists. It is heavy-handed for sure, but it can be enjoyable. The guitar style is purely indie, but on the more punk end of the spectrum. And, with some fairly unremarkable drumming, the music just comes across as average indie. It's inventive at times, and I think that's the reason this album doesn't get the absolute worst rating I could give it. There are some interesting moments, but it's mainly competent indie rock. The band calls itself 'art rock', but I really can't see either the art in it or the difference from indie.

So, there you have it. It's not the worst 2013 album I heard, but it's close. The music is capable at times, but the album is again and again brought down by asinine lyrics. It wouldn't be so bad if the lyrics were vague or low-key, but this band is remarkably forceful with their crappy words. So, if you don't mind the lyrics, it could be an good indie album to hear. If you care about the whole package, avoid this stinker.
