Goat to play Glastonbury

Yes that is right...straight after their 'nearly sold out' show at Camden's Electric Ballroom with Teeth of the Sea the band will be heading down to Glastonbury for what we understand is two sets. More details on these will emerge once confirmed.

Exclusive teaser video for forthcoming Heads DVD

THE HEADS DVD Teaser from Rocket Recordings on Vimeo.

It has become a thing of infamy, but the first clips of the Heads DVD boxset on Rocket has emerged.

The DVD will centre around a live performance at The Cube Cinema, Bristol in 2005. The show was split into 2 sets - a Rock Set and a Psyche Set.

The boxset will also compile never seen before footage from the bands 20+ year career. We have trawled through hours of live footage, interviews, studio jams, promo videos etc  and pulled all the best bits together. It will be the most complete retrospective of The Heads to have ever been put together.

There is also a plan to put the audio of both Cube sets as a CD within the box.

Release date is still sketchy, but we hope it will come out by the end of 2013.

See what the Quietus have to say about the teaser here: Heads teaser

Raven sings the blues reviews the Anthroprophh LP

Blog 'Revens Sings the Blues' has written these words about the now sold out Anthroprophh LP:

"The Heads' Paul Allen breaks out solo to record an album of kraut-drenched psych excursions that will definitely appeal to fans of the Bristolian musician's day racket, but he adds a touch of subtlety beyond the fuzz soaked riffs as well. The self-titled affair, on the ever reliable Rocket Recordings, explodes into a fiery Ash-Ra Temble grooved / Acid Mother's Temple riffed opener but soon settles down into a more sedate and drone oriented brand of psychedelia that lets in acoustic elements and shuffling grooves owing more to Neu and Cluster than to their fiery followers. 

The record is dark and often tipped on a nervous knife edge of rhythmic tension which Allen uses to stack the album with complex layers of emotion not always straining through your average psych offering. Adding to the fray are contributions from noise collective Big Naturals, who fill out sections with their chaotic touch of drumming and electronics, enhancing Allen's vision even further. The record builds to a powerful climax on the 16+ minute centerpiece "Entropy," which tips the album further down the abyss of epicness and makes as powerful a statement as anything that Allen has set forth with The Heads. Well worth checking into this one. "

Louder than War review of Goat's 'Run to your mama remix' 12"s

GOAT - Run To Your Mama (Redg Weeks Remix) from Makinov on Vimeo.

As everyone knows, we are releasing 2 x Ltd 12"s of remixes of Goat's track Run to your mama on Record Store Day.

The amazing Louder than War site have written a nice little review about them:

"Enigmatic Swedish band Goat release two 12 inch singles of remixes for Record Store day. Brett Savage has a listen for Louder Than War.

2012 was in many ways the year of the Goat. Not a great deal is known about this enigmatic Swedish collective, other than the fact they hail from a little town called Korpilombolo which has a population of little over 500 people, and they appear to be some reclusive voodoo sect. However, ‘World Music’ topped many an end of year poll, weaving its spell with a rather oddball take on voodoo and more importantly, a totally infectious, danceable groove. Given that the ever reliable Rocket Recordings had, completely out of nowhere, a genuine phenomenon on their hands; it was obvious there was a need to feed the Goat fan base’s growing addiction. As a limited edition for Piccadilly Record’s Album of the Year edition of ‘World Music’, Rocket Recordings assembled a veritable who’s who of contemporary psych rock’s elite to remix one of the standout tracks from the album. To serve the greater public, the Rocket boys are making this collection available over a series of 2 x12”’s for Record Store Day 2013.

West Country shoegazers Thought Forms open up the proceedings with a rather tribal take on Run to Your Mama, replete with warbles and echo, which gets the things off the ground nicely. High Wolf (who released the ace Annapurna Illusion on Rocket Recordings) creates a loopy hypnotic swirl and cosmic wash with his visionary take, whilst Invada man Redg Weeks adds post-punk/kraut clang to his. Tom Furse of The Horror’s rousing ‘extrapolation mix’ is precisely that, venturing off on a whole together rockier, Ziggy Stardust course than the original, with (presumably) leather pants, face paint and platform shoes included..."

Teeth of the Sea and Wire playing Drill

Here is some great footage of Teeth of the Sea and Wire playing the track Drill at Cafe Oto last night.

Also below is also some footage of two new Teeth of the Sea tracks 'Black Strategy' and 'Reaper'. Both these tracks will be appearing on their forthcoming album 'Master'.

Teeth of the Sea give their praise to Wire

The Quietus asked some of their favourite artists Why they love Wire and a couple of members of Teeth of the Sea who are collaborating with Wire tomorrow responded:

Mat Colegate, Teeth Of The Sea
I've always thought of Wire as a warped British psychedelic band, embodying a similar mixture of Lewis Carroll surrealism (shone through a JG Ballard prism) and primo art school thuggery as bands like John's Children or early Soft Machine. Most of all though, they're Wire, a meeting place for willful obfuscation and chiming white-light clarity. Fucking great Pop, in other words. Wire are a bit more on the ball melody wise than Teeth Of The Sea are, it has to be said. But, yeah, they definitely take their conceptual side pretty seriously, which is something we all really admire. They have a similar approach to ideas as we do, maybe? That it doesn't matter if you're the best player in the world, or the greatest song writer. You can think your way successfully through musical situations if you use the right blend of literal and lateral thinking. If you look back at their work you can see how important humour is as well. Although maybe it's closer to the 'Umour' of the surrealists? I don't know, because I don't know what 'Umour' means. It's like Harmolodics or something. Baffling and brilliant. Very appropriate.

I think Change Becomes Us is brilliant. I've listened to it three times today already. 'Adore Your Island' is like the perfect song or something, isn't it? Like The Who if they'd been bought up by Wilhelm Reich. I love the weird polish the album has, and the vocal effects. To be honest, I think pretty much every other guitar band in the country should have a listen and a good hard look at themselves, irrespective of their fucking age.

It's difficult to say how the rehearsal for Saturday went as I was busy psychically high-fiving the fourteen year old me. It was great. We plugged in and we did it. Fast, noisy and ferocious. And fun, don't forget fun. The cherry on the cake was being told that the extremely nice sports car outside the studio belonged to Marti Pellow of Wet Wet Wet (to be honest the 'X1 WET' reg plate should have given it away) which led on to a long involved conversation about the existence or otherwise of Pellow's fabled 'Heroin Moose'. There was a moment when we were playing though, when Colin and Graham both looked up at each other and cracked out in smiles and that's what will stay with me, I'd imagine. Can't wait to play 'Drill' on Saturday! Prepare for thunder...

Sam Barton, Teeth Of The Sea
I love Wire for their creative fearlessness - one can never make a sound too weird, too nasty or, conversely, too pretty. A delight in exploring sound for its own sake and a recognition that texture and timbre are as important in musical composition as melody/harmony/rhythm. An understanding that the idea of 'song' can go beyond first person confessional/forced metaphor/protest or any other tropes that usually signify the literary within the 'rock canon'. A willingness to credit their audience with sufficient intelligence to follow them on whatever twists and turns they choose to take them on. An almost infuriating ability to do all this and still turn out pop music so damn infectious that most 'mainstream' acts would kill to be able to write it.

I actually got into them via Lush's cover of  'Outdoor Miner', which was the B-side of the 'For Love' single (1992 I think). About two months later I found the 7" of the Wire original (on white vinyl) on a school trip to Stratford Upon Avon. The B-side was 'Practice Makes Perfect' which was like nothing I'd ever heard at that point. Just the space, texture of those tracks and weird opaque nature of the lyrics. The simmering whole-tone menace of 'Practice Makes Perfect', the outrageous tunefulness of 'Outdoor Miner', the way these things sat together within the same band. Weirdly I actually ended up years later giving that record away to John (ex ToTS member) once I had all the tunes on CD as I occasionally go through these drunken 'potlatch' moments of giving favourite discs to friends.   I think Wire represent a lot of the ideals I strive for in making music. The fact that they're always working, even if it's not on the conventional band treadmill of records, tours etc, for example they'll do sound installations, collaborations with visual artists and deconstructions of their own work. They also blur the notions of high and low art which is a philosophy that ToTS have always pitched our tent around . For example I've always had this ideal in music of the 'bohemian football hooligan anthem', it's something Jimmy and I have discussed at length over the years. Basically the most perfect examples of the form are 'Needle In The Camel's Eye' by Eno and 'I Am The Fly' by Wire. That's not meant to sound flippant - if you can write an insane polyrhythmic song that lyrically makes Metamorphosis look a bit on the safe side and still make it a Saturday night air-puncher then you've truly achieved greatness. The pop thing is really important, it's not ivory tower experimentalism, it's to be put out into the world.

The rehearsal for Saturday was amazing. Any experience that begins with Colin Newman making you a cup of tea is going to be amazing, right? We geeked out over the effects pedals for a bit, then got down to putting together a colossal slab of noise. I was obviously a bit nervous about how it would go down but they seemed to really like what we did.

Teeth Of The Sea's present's their "Be Quiet Or Be Killed" playlist

Ahead of their performance at DRILL:LONDON this weekend (including a collaboration with Wire on Saturday night), Teeth Of The Sea have put together a post punk and beyond playlist for the Quietus to get you in the mood:

"The well-worn cliché of punk rock as a cleansing fire that destroyed all before it, for all its truth, has long also long been a retrogressive plague in its own right in musical terms, leading to just as much self-indulgent complacency as Emerson, Lake And Palmer ever contributed to recorded sound, not to mention the entire careers of timewasters like Tony Parsons. These dozen gems represent an attempt to plot a course of timeless post-punk iconoclasm that steers clear of the well-worn paths and the received wisdoms that have been perpetuated. These, still startling in 2013, are the eternal flies in the ointment..."

'Nothing is...' happening on March 15th

It is that time again when 'Nothing is...' returns to the Alibi in Dalston.

Rocket's Rik Motor joins regulars Cage & Aviary, Cherrystones and Little Dirty for a night of musical nonsense.

As always the night begins at 9pm and finishes at 3am and best of all it is free to get in.

To avoid the inevitable queue to get in and more importantly to hear the more 'experimental' sets of rare delights we would recommend getting down early!!

You can show your appreciation or send insults to us here: Nothing is...

BUT, if you are not at 'Nothing is...' on Friday, then you should be at the amazing show at the Corsica, where Thought Forms and Vision Fortune are supporting the mighty Oneida! 

Though if you are clever you can do both, and come to 'Nothing is...' after this great show!!

After supporting Toy at the Lexington, Wire will hotfoot it to Cafe Oto... there, ToTS will have been playing a set of their Giorgio Morodor-TG-Wolf Eyes genregasm. Wire will then join ToTS for an semi-improvised encore of 'Drill' featuring both bands. Dugga dugga dugga!

Also on the bill will be Verity Susman of Electrelane, whose solo sets feature an intriguing mixture of electronics, sax, performance and film. We saw her play a wonderful gig last year at the Shacklewell Arms - this is not to be missed. Tickets for this event are available here.

The Nighthammer remixes Gnod's Genocider

Fresh from his remix of Goat's Run to your mama for the Piccadilly records free CD, The Night Hammer has done a mind numbing remix of Gnod's Genocider...one of the standout tracks off the Chaudelande album.

The Nighthammer is in fact Tony Mountford from the 'sadly not around no more' Rocket band The Notorious Hi-Fi Killers. Apart from doing amazing remixes, Tony runs the label Noisestar and is also in the band Cove, who's recently recorded album is stunning and hopefully will be released soon!!



Glass magazine interviews Teeth of the Sea

After their amazing set supporting Savages at the Lexington on Monday, Teeth of the Sea have been interviewed by Glass magazine:

"Creeping from the from the disparate embers of a Roxy Music tribute act, barren rehearsal spaces, experiments with Rachel Stevens drum samples and a joint desire to play the Flash Gordon soundtrack in its entirety, London instrumental quartet, Teeth of the Sea – a translation from the French title of Jaws: Les Dents de la Mer – construct innately animal, avant-noise dissonance, drawing upon influences as far flung as Wolf Eyes, for their “hedonist, noisy, full on and unpretentious atmosphere” and the broader noise remit of Liars, Black Dice and Lightning Bolt. 

Later this year we’ll see a third self-produced album through the cottage-industry Rocket Records imprint and they’ll also take their ferocious cheerleading troupe on a tour of Europe. Their methodology is summed up by multi-instrumentalist Mat Colegate, who astutely puts it as “an approach of a complete and utter lack of pretention whilst still making difficult music.” Unsurprisingly, for a band with such an articulate (albeit skewed) vision, all four wax incredibly erudite about their process as Glass meet them at an east London flophouse.  

Q: Your way of making music seems pretty unfettered. Do you assign yourself  instruments or roles?

Sam Barton (mainly – but not only – trumpet): Well the plan was always to have a fairly open ended approach to that… to have delineated roles. Over time this has solidified a little bit. I originally said I’d just take my trumpet down and run it through a wah-wah pedal … Like a 70s Miles Davis...."

Dot's and Dashes dig's Redg Weeks mix of Goat's Run you your mama

This is what they say:

"World Music, last year’s début full-length from envelope-pushing Swede psychs Goat, was an irrefutably great album – one which is celebrated avidly even to this day, and one suspects we’ll continue to froth at the chops over it for quite some time to come. Though one of its perhaps less great moments is its shortest and indeed least substantial track, Run To Your Mama. Or rather it was, until Invada head honcho Redg Weeks got his hooves on it to deftly transmogrify into an upbeat dub throb of a thing. Its newly fabricated bass line sinewy as freshly plundered ruminant stew; its reverberant rim shots paranoiac as Anika’s besmirched reworks, Christian Johansson’s original composition gets something of a butchering and mercifully by the sounds of it, the blood spatters Weeks’ hands. For he renders it that bit more primordial still, its simian mating calls adeptly phased in and out of focus as the rejuvenated rhythm section clatters on unperturbed like a dilapidated Oriental Express beneath. Clamber aboard below…"

Aural Innovations reviews the sold out Anthroprophh LP

"Anthroprophh is the solo project, and this is the first solo album, by The Heads guitarist and vocalist (and audio generator operator) Paul Allen. The Heads are a UK band formed in the early 90′s. Initially inspired by emerging stoner rock bands of the time like Monster Magnet, albeit with a heavier dose of noise thrown in, on later albums like 33 (2004) and Dead in the Water (2005) they began to explore longer form, more experimental rock. For his debut album (released on vinyl and as a download), Allen has taken inspiration from his own band’s later albums, but tempered it with the rhythms of Krautrock for some truly inspired, mostly instrumental psychedelic rock. 

Opening cut, Hermit, is a churning, LSD soaked electric voyage, from its sea of wah wah’d distortion opening, through its stormy, acidic guitar work and pounding Can-inspired rhythms to its swirling, hallucinogenic coda. These tracks aren’t as long as some of 20-minute monsters found on the above mentioned Heads LP’s, the shortest one being the solo electro-acoustic Discretion Shot (clocking in at 1:09), but their sound is focused, each piece developing its own distinct sonic snapshot, whether it be the tribal intensity of Precession, the droning space journey of Ende or the mind-altering, bad trip British garage rock meets alien landscape of We. Allen does break into longer form exploration with one track on the album though, the 16 1/2 minute Entropy. This one is a sonic buffet for kosmiche loving ears, all intense, part machine, part human rhythmic minimalism married to guitar atmospherics and bubbling, cosmic electronic noises. Allen shows supreme control over his guitar here, slowly developing the ambience, weaving it in and out of the driving tempo of the percussion. The piece ever so slowly builds in intensity over its course, as Allen subtly introduces more and more sounds, finally cutting lose on his guitar for some hypnotic, spiralling soloing only when the tension can’t take it anymore. 

Mesmerizingly brilliant!"

We have been told that the Anthroprophh album has sold out. There are no more in the warehouse and there are no more at the Rocket shop, so what is in the racks of record shops are all there is left.
