SEVERED HEADS - SINCE THE ACCIDENT (LP)


"The first of the two Severed Heads reissues is 1983's "Since The Accident". Severed Heads are one of the most diverse and expert sound palette engineers and are also repeatedly overlooked and far underrated. Hailing from Sydney, Australia, they formed in 1979. The band was composed of many different members though it's existence but Tom Ellard has always been the constant since 1979 when he joined the band. The group's early recordings were characterized by manipulated tape loop experiments, cleverly modulated noise elements and repetition. This period is very well suited to the early industrial period. Over time, the sounds morphed into more melodic leanings with pop elements and more prominent synth leads and backbone. "Since The Accident" was released in 1983 on UK "Ink" records. The LP exemplifies the transition point between experimental structure and loops into the catchy pop hooks that would later define such releases as "Rotund For Success". Difficult to classify, it is a masterpiece of electronic music. Long out of print and a rarity on the collector's market, it is presented with original repro jacket. Remastered by Tom Ellard form the original source masters. Presented on high-quality 180gram heavyweight black and white vinyl. Features bonus LP insert compiled by Tom Ellard with ephemera from the time." (label info)
