Joe Thompson
Sleevenotes

Who in their right mind would continue to tour in 2019? I suppose people who know that post-Brexit they won't be allowed out of their own turf and all those lovely rewarding trips to Belgium will be a thing of the past. People I suppose like Joe Thompson of Hey Colossus who has gathered all the stories and disasters and good times of a decade and a half on the road and released it as a 261 page book. I love books like this, where you can snuggle in the eiderdown on a winter's night and read about other peoples struggle in uncomfortable, sometimes ridiculous situations. One for the winter book list.

Hey Colossus
Carcass / Medal

A bite-sized portion of psych / psychotic rock music from the Hey Colossus stable. 'Carcass' is as near to pop as you might expect this crew to get, whereas 'Medal' on the flip-side is a fast and furious blast-crunch. A well-selected single really, showing off different modes of the Colossus. 7” on Alter.

Hey Colossus
Four Bibles

Hey Colossus make it a dozen studio LPs with new record Four Bibles. This is at once some of the most direct and the most daring full-length that the sextet have made yet. Tracks like ‘Memory Gore’ are monolithic lopes that blur the boundaries between noise-rock and metal. The risk-taking comes in the instrumentation and ephemera - piano, electronics and violin all crop up on Four Bibles (the latter of which is proffered by This Is Not This Heat/Grumbling Fur man Daniel O’Sullivan), and bassist Joe Thompson has written a book to coincide with the album’s release.

Hey Colossus
Live at Magasin4, Brussels

Hey Colossus have hit 15 years in the game. To celebrate the London post-/psych-/hard-rockers are releasing a live LP recorded at - who’d have thought - Brussels venue Magasin4. The audio for Live At Magasin4, Brussels (see) came straight out of the desk, so what you get here is pure unfiltered HeyCo. That means there are times when it’s trippy, times when it’s pretty, and times when it’s very damn heavy. Here’s to another 15.

Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow. The eight of them made a right old racket which has now been re-pressed onto a double LP with a bonus LP of outtakes and tracks which didn't make the first pressing. 

Hey Colossus
Radio Static High

Hey Colossus have become more and more of a multi-faceted band as time has gone by. Radio Static High finds them managing to hold back the apocalyptic riff-monster and allow their tracks a little more room to breath and expand. The results still sound blasted, but in a fresh new way. Out from the Rocket label.

Hey Colossus
Dedicated To Uri Klangers

The Hey Colossus juggernaut revs up again, this time for a retrospective release. Dedicated To Uri Klangers aims to feature at least one track from every one of the noisy collective’s albums from 2002 to 2013 (although the messy nature of the band means no liability is accepted if they missed something somewhere). Initially put on cassette tape for a show, the collection is now pressed up to tasty double vinyl. On MIE.

Hey Colossus
The Guillotine

Some bands begin to edge out of the shadows, allowing the brightness of accessible production and relatable lyricism to evolve their work, while others sink deeper into darker and insular innovation. Hey Colossus are a group that are doing the latter, as proven by immersive and razor-sharp The Guillotine.

Kreol Lovecall
Jangle and Chime

Kreol Lovecall is Jonathan Richards, who has played in a whole bunch of groups in his time, notably including Hey Colossus. But Jangle And Chime is his first record as a solo artist, and it’s remarkably sleek and groovy. Melody and rhythm are totally crucial here, as are the lyrics that engage with the tricky place we are in here in 2017. Vinyl release on the Fighting Spirit label.

Unruly Milk
Spilaggges

Unruly Milk is the unstable duo of Hey Colossus’ guitar player Joe Thompson and ex-Hacker Farm electronicist Kek (plus some vocals from Elisa Thompson). The results are a woozy West Country haze of melodic strum, fizzy circuits and unusual production: it's a strong brew quite unlike any other! Edition of 100 CDrs on Blackcat Records.

Hey Colossus
All The Humans (Are Losing Control)

Hey Colossus sure do stay busy, with this release arriving hot on the heels of 2 albums last year. All The Humans (Are Losing Control) is a new tune of excellent heavy pedigree, and 2 new versions of old songs are also squeezed onto this cassette. Self-released by the band, only 100 copies are available!

Hey Colossus
Golden Cabinet, The Kirkgate Centre, Shipley (Saturday 5th March)

Shipley’s finest experimental promoters present another hard-hitting line-up at The Kirkgate centre, this time mixing heavy experimental rock and heavy experimental dance musics. Rocket Recordings sludgy psych rockers Hey Colossus lead the charge, followed by Walls member Not Waving and the solo electronic mangling of Hey Colossus drummer DRMCNT. This is an e-ticket for the gig, no shipping charge.

Hey Colossus
In Black And Gold

Hey Colossus and Rocket Recordings seem like such a natural fit, I was surprised to see this was their first release together. Hey Colossus’ furious in-the-red psych-noise-rock has been going down well for years, and In Black And Gold contains plenty of that sound, but it also has a few tracks that aren’t caked in amplified mud. Interesting...

Hey Colossus/ Field Boss
Split

A classic formula really: two heavy shouty noisy bands grab one side of a 7” each, get a few hundred copies pressed up, and send their collaborative platter around the world. This particular split, from major undergrounders Hey Colossus and the lesser-known but similarly fucked-sounding Field Boss, is out on Black Horizons.
