- Inner Space Broadcasts Vol.1 Part 1 by The Heads
Still in its infancy, Cardinal Fuzz is a Leeds-based label doling out absurdly limited psych platters by sought-after names, and here finally is their first from the band who gave the label its name, The Heads. Although there are only two tracks on this 12” it still clocks in at an LP-length 35+ minutes and sees the lads on incendiary form, widdling and wah-ing and screeching and feedbacking but most of all riffing. Huge great barrelling fuzz riffs that’ll flood your mind and wipe it clean.
The first track on here ‘Sike #9’ opens with some heavy Hawkwind-esque riffing and guitar heroics before dropping back to a skeletal, restrained repeato groove which builds and builds until they’re back on the heroics again. Stoneriffic! On the flip there’s a rehearsal recording called ‘k.r.t.’, which starts slow with some shuffling drums, slow throbbing bass and twittering cosmic guitar details and continues along these rather restrained lines for some time, until some wah guitar and feedback start to crank up the volume. It’s pretty clattery and for much of the time somewhat lacks the dirty distortion and wah abuse that’s synonymous with The Heads, instead reminding us a little of Can. It’s pretty noisy by the end though.
I’ve already said more than I need to because you know you want this and these would all be gone within a week or two even if I wrote that it was dog dirt. You can get it now or not get it ever, basically.
