Psychedelic noise purveyors, Krautrock obscurist obsessives, and Stoogian riff worshippers The Heads offer a proper CD reissue of their lauded Dead in the Water album. Previously released on CDR in an edition of 100 copies and subsequently pressed as a double-LP, it has now been remastered by Latch Manghat (Taint) and sequenced as four sides, as opposed to 30-plus tracks, to achieve the effect of listening to the double vinyl format without having to get up and change sides.

The Heads deliver the goods on Dead in the Water, a collection of works-in-progress, monster jams, riffs to infinity, white noise maelstroms, and garage fuzz/spuzz. This record is quite possibly the best thing from the Bristol, UK four-piece since their monster opus Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere. Riffs, just churning, steamrolling, and destroying, far more than any High Rise/Musica Transonic fan could wish for; driving destructo rhythms that lay waste to anything heard on so-called doom labels; guitar leads and out-there avant improvs that will have shred/bread-heads leaping off their towering piles of "psych/New Weird America" CDRs, lathes, whatever--this is a non-stop pummel of every sense, and yet there are some subtle droneathons within that will make a Rugby resident hang up his Spacemen suit.

2008 will prove to be a busy year for The Heads, with more shows planned this year than in the previous ten. Following a rare live outing at Portishead's ATP in December 2007, they will play a sold-out Roadburn Festival in April, the Rocket Records ten-year anniversary, a Butchers Hook seventeenth-year anniversary, and a selection of European dates in July with fellow travellers Wooden Shjips.

Haven't heard The Heads? This is the perfect starting point. Your teeth will ache, your mind will expand...
