8/10 Brian Staff review, 17 January 2008
Headquarters open up their highly limited vinyl LP debut: Booker One Time ,with such shrill, wonk-tastic delights. Looks like I got all the schizo rock this week. This bunch are seriously deep. Mathy experimental rock w/ schizo vox, hacked fuzz guitar, snaking bass climbing up an imaginary beanstalk and drums played by someone with a multiple personality disorder. A liberal dash of Buttholes/Beefheartian madness chucked all over the lurching, grinding mess that poses as 'music'. Strung out passages of feedback that suddenly burst into pummeling twisted jazz-core. The fact that bands continue to delight & confound in this way is important. Deconstructing the bloated torso of rock with audio chainsaws, performing frontal lobotomies on the strutting ego that is the guitar 'hero'. Ltd to 200 copies on thick vinyl in a nice sturdy sleeve with some whales uprooting trees on. If you like Charlottefield & old London hardcore heroes Fabric, treat yersen to this too!
