SEVERED HEADS - LAMBORGHINI / PETROL (MLP)


"Dark Entries digs deeper in to the archives of Severed Heads, one of the longest surviving bands to emerge from the Australian post-punk independent music scene. They began in Sydney in 1979, incorporating elements of 'industrial' noise-generation, tape cutting & looping and electronic sound synthesis. As the project developed song-structures and vocals were employed in a more-or-less recognizable mutant electro pop style. In 1986 the band released the 12" single "Petrol" on Nettwerk Records. We've decided to shed light on the evolution of "Petrol" with this EP showcasing four earlier incarnations of what became an instant synth pop classic. "Petrol", originally titled "Lamborghini", was written by Garry Bradbury and Tom Ellard in 1981. Finally in 1985, the band went into the Terse Tapes studio with producer Robert Racic to record "Petrol" for a 7" single release on Volition Records. Featured here is the B-side of the 7", a cut-up dub "version" remixed by Racic and packed full of intensity. Each copy includes a postcard with notes and original hand-written lyrics by Garry Bradbury." (label info)
