THE HEAD - Still nothing to do in a town like leatherhead [UK 1979-81] 2008 Detour
Neither really punks nor mods, The Head (1979-82) were “local heroes” not blessed with masses of ability and natural talent. That said, their combination of droll humour and two-fingered Farfisa organ hooks on songs about their hometown, how their girlfriends fancied Billy Idol and how drugs were uncool have a certain amateurish charm. If you remember that Vaultage ’78 sound or Leamington Spa’s The Shapes, then this may appeal. Detour is a fine label, full of love and dedication to its roster of bands from yesteryear, but sadly this is not on a par with previous releases.
