A HEADS, THE "Discography 1982-2009" LP
This release compiles all the early material from UK anarcho peace punk band the A HEADS. The UK's A HEADS came up in the early 80s amidst the Anarcho Punk scene with label mates and good friends SUBHUMANS (with whom they shared members). A HEADS definitely reference the classic sound but stand out with a level of playfulness among the themes of bleak political times and personal turmoil. A heads commented on political issues at the time but were not as overt as other bands and included more personal subject matter as well. The band didn't get very experimental and wouldn't sound out of place on a KILLED BY DEATH compilation this is tuneful punk rock with strong female vocals that veers towards more conventional rock n roll wisdom than ranting CRASSisms. What they created was a timeless band influenced by peace punk like ZOUNDS and the MOB just as much as the ADVERTS and SIOUXIE AND THE BANSHEES. Includes all songs recorded in their original period as well as 3 songs from their self released 2009 CD and an unreleased demo track.
