Heads, The – “Tilburg” – [Rooster Rock]

61Olg5C4QlL._SY300_

 

Four guys from England: Paul Allen (guitar, vox, audio generator), H.O. Morgan (bass), Wayne Maskell (drums, sonic attack), and Simon Price (guitar vox). This is a live album from a July 2008 European tour with Wooden Shjips. This recording is from a night in Tilburg, Netherlands at a place called 013 Poppodium.

As I dropped the needle on the first side of this double LP, I could feel the room slowly filling with smoke as the psychedelic haze began. You can feel the energy of the live show, in the guitars mostly, the wailing lead, and the heavy riffage as it slowly turns into a more spaced out atmospheric experience. The last track is the entire D-Side “Spliff Riff,” and it cooks! What starts as an assault slowly mellows out, but the beat speeds up, moaning guitars, thumping drums, gutteral bass.. cool electronics at the end? Or is it feedback noise?

Sides A-C: 3 bowls, Side D: 3 bowls by itself.

FCC: At the very beginning of the B-Side, he says, “We’re The Heads, thanks and SHIT”
