This is a site by music fans (and musicians) for music fans. We’ve got a serious itch for good music (as we’re sure you do as well if you’re reading this) and MEDICATION is the scratch (so to speak). Take your medicine kids. Swallow this. What you'll find below is a variety of music hand picked by us and our close friends just for you! Don't you feel special?!?! These songs are only posted for evaluation purposes, so please don’t trip out. We here at “The Head” really love and support well-made music, and make every effort to support the artists we dig on by purchasing their work (we only post shit that we own). The purpose of this site is to simply share good music with others who will also hopefully continue to support these artists. It’s a win-win situation, got it champ? We encourage everyone to purchase music, concert tickets and $47 dollar tour shirts in XXL from the artists you feel merit your dollar bills (if you are gonna listen to something again and again... why not?). We also encourage everyone to never have kids, do drugs & worship Satan though. In other words, if you happen to be one of the fancy-pants that own the copyright to one of these songs and would like a song removed for our site, please don’t sue us. Please just let us know by emailing us at email@example.com. We’re not here too harsh anyone’s mellow. If you are a band, label or distributor and think we'd be interested in your music, please feel free to send us a cd to Buddyhead PO BOX 1268 HOLLYWOOD, CA 90078. Feel free to chew on our nuts too biiiiiiotch!
Yeah it's been a while since I put anything up here... been busy doing cool shit. Sue me. Check out this video of a pig thinking he's dead after eating pot brownies. It's gotta make you smile. Made me smile.
Doc Corbin Dart -- now known only as the number "26" in a name-changing move similar to Prince, but borne out of some kind of spiritual awakening -- is best known as the former frontman for the aggressively negative and anti-authoritarian punk band The Crucifucks. That band's classic 1984 debut album, featuring drummer Steve Shelley (later of Sonic Youth) introduced the world to Dart's particularly vehement rants which bordered on insane schadenfreude: "Let's kill the fucking pigs if they get in our way/ It'll set a good example for the children today," and the unnerving drawl, "I want to kill the president, cut off his head and mail it to them in a garrrrbage baaaaaggg!" Well, not surprisingly, it turns out that Dart suffers from a semi-functional mental illness known as Borderline Personality Disorder, and his paranoid antipathy goes further and runs deeper than mere hatred for politicians and the police. Having driven away band members (Dart was already the only original member on the group's second Alternative Tentacles album Wisconsin two years later), reportedly his family and his wife, Dart "went solo" and released an album named after his therapist Patricia.
None of those releases can top the weirdness of Dart's latest album under the new moniker 26, titled The Messiah. At times this track sounds like two songs played at once, with multiple layers of guitars colliding into each other like voices in a schizophrenic's head. "Oblivious" sounds vaguely like later PIL material, particularly Dart's Lydonesque singing toward the end of the song. Regardless of how bizarre the song might sound, his lyrics remain a glowing example of pure, hostile disassociative behavior -- on both the personal and political level (I'd hazard a guess that he sees no distinction between the two.)
Check out Mark Prindle's excellent overview on the Crucifucks goes into details (and possible rumors) regarding Dart's present state of mind and being. Also, look for interesting comments from the band's original guitarist.
My buddy in Sweden has the best taste and puts out some great unheard music... that's why I think some artistic patron should give him money to put out more awesome music! This is the debut full-length from Göteborg, Sweden's Alarma Man. They have been plugging around their region playing their weird instrumental mathic compositions for a few years now I suspect. There ain't no special "members of" or anything here.. just a bunch of funny dudes making some great instrumental music. Reminds of later Man Or Astroman (touch and go era) and Shellac... They have amazing song-titles too which I always feel is important for instrumental music as it paints an image to the soundtrack.
Some great titles:
"Cheese My Dad" "I Am Eleven Years Old, I Have No Animals" "Signed Up For Games And Theory"
Yes! The song I will share with you today is called "Fell In Love With A Woman Twice My Size". I dedicate it to Interpol! Go!!!
Heavily effected obtuse Swedish indie rock that somehow got labeled as "Labyrinth-Punk", which I find to be a pretty great musical-label. I can never quite figure out these guys as they tend to differ greatly from album to album stripping down members, playing only instrumentals, and then making strange early 90s-ish indie rock/pop songs throughout their current span of 3 albums! Maybe that's why they are associated with labyrinths. At any rate, this wonderful track "Buckfighter" (from thier second album "KONSUMERA ERA") is a mixture of late 90s Chicago noise, Sonic Youth "Daydream Nation-era" ghostly vocals, with slight Fugazi-ish inklings.
It comes from the obscure Göteborg, Sweden based label, Carcrash Records, that currently tends to release a wide arrange of stranger Swedish rock that is rather unheard in the United States (except for C.ARMEE which was licensed by Epitaph).
