- Collision V. 1 by White Hills / The Heads
8/10 Brian Staff review, 17 April 2009What I need today is some heavy psych stoner rock. The Heads who formed in Bristol back in the dark ages and NY's White Hills have a smart double header LP out on Rocket. I think people are starting to realise how important The Heads are now, they've been plugging their dirgy, brooding acid fried sound for years now and everytime I hear one of their records it makes me wanna grow long hair and rock out like a mofo and emulate goddess of lunge, Roxanne Faith Healer. The one long track on here, 'Camden Brain Slurry' is utterly fabulous. The bass playing is like Tracey Pew's from The Birthday Party, menacingly hypnotic and the guitar noise ranges from caustic sheets of white noise to strung out & fucked up soloing. The beautifully paced tumbling drums, just keep on trucking like you get on an OM record. To top it, the vocals are somewhere between Spacemen 3 & Ian Curtis, a nihilistic reedy chant, spilling with poison. Sprightlier than some of the slo-core doomers but probably heavier on the acid and freak out than most, their blend is scintilating. White Hills are psychedelic mofos too but sound a little more retro. Theirs is a Jimi Hendrix-esque freak out called 'I Will Find Peace of Mind' out that doesn't quite take me to the same place but is absorbing, lively and chaotic enough for me to sit up and take notice. I especially love the wah wah & filtering effects the guitarist endorses, he's well adventurous. It doesn't feature the 5 minute drum solo i'd been building myself up for mind.......Well banging, this fine double header is already shitting out & I reckon won't be standing around for too long so get yr skates on party dudes PS WE'VE JUST FOUND OUT THE LABELS ON THE RECORD ARE REVERSED SO YOU MAY WANNA REVERSE THE REVIEW.....
10/10 Russell Customer review,
Quick point of reference. The record is actually labeled incorrectly. It is actually the White Hills track that has the vocals and the Heads piece is the instrumental. Both are gloriously mind melting tunes anyway although I would say that on this occasion White Hills just edge it!
