Spaceheads is one of the most unusual and original bands to hit the music scene of the 1990's. Seriously. The quirky trumpet and rat a tat tat of the drums mesh together surprisingly well. You definitely won't hear anything like this anywhere else but on a Spaceheads CD. Andy Diagram's trumpet is played through electronics (whammy harmonizer pedal and echo machine loops) and somehow he manages to sing in between blasts of brass. You won't hear a bass player on this record and there is no need for one - you'll hear why. Onstage they have no need for fancy hype like go-go girls dancing inside cages. You'll just need to expect unbridled weirdness that only Spaceheads could master!
" The Spaceheads are among the most compelling projects of the past decade, naturally bringing together several different vital elements of the underground music zeitgeist in a remarkably organic, refreshingly original, and completely addictive fashion. The collaboration features trumpeter Andy Diagram, a onetime member of the classic British psych-pop ensemble James who also records with ex-Pere Ubu frontman David Thomas as 2 Pale Boys, and percussionist Richard Harrison, who has worked with everyone from God Is My Co-Pilot to Graham Massey (of 808 State) to Stereolab. They formed their partnership while playing in a noisy new wave/post-punk band called Dislocation Dance during the '80s. Following this, the duo formed a band called The Honkies which featured the two of them plus a pair of sax players and which recorded intermittently before burning out in the mid '90s. Then in 1989 Diagram and Harrison started recording alone as Spaceheads. Diagram's echo-looped trumpet is the comet darting across the hot star-flecked night sky, while a wash of skittering techno sounds creeps below. Spaceheads tunes are funky and deep, they're dangerous and tense, they're spacey and cosmic, and they're peaceful and meditative, all at once. " Jesse Ashlock on Epitonic.com
