ꇒꈼꋊ ❼ : {🅺🅸🅻*🅺🆄🅻🆃🆄🆁} 🕸⛧🕯🖤 🖤 🖤 🧿 {✠Ⱨ₳ł₮Ⱨ₳₦₳✠} Honestly, I've been so hooked on Hot with Fleas (various versions), that I just had to get into the rest of the stuff. Now I see why Severed Heads has been such an inspiration to others like Skinny Puppy and such. Immensely enjoyable throughout, cheers 🥂. Favorite track: Hot With Fleas (original).

Andrew Lagowski There are so many great ideas here, it’s impossible for me to find a favourite. Have the CD and vinyl but there are extras here and digital will be the way forward for homebound and nomadic alike. So let’s continue to support Tom and all like him.

about

Bad Mood Guy was written during, and soon following, a flawed world tour in 1986 which was often soul destroying and in some cases career ruining. Despite the adverse situation, I was desperate to exit the IDM scene and to try to make music that was at odds with the growing cliches of 'electronica'. And the Volition label wanted to try to lift the band out of the home recording ghetto into a real studio. All of this ended up in a frightful mess.

In trying to avoid cliches, I was not able to find a better replacement - e.g. real drums didn't sound better than drum machines - and two days in a real studio wasn't better than a long time in a home studio. Racic's remix of Hot With Fleas brought the band straight back to IDM but at least it was a clear direction in the muddle. Almost immediately the band announced a version 2 of the LP, which was worked on in fits and starts over the years, then lost in a chewed DAT tape. The sevcom re-issue joins live recordings and demo versions to create what the album was trying to achieve before the confusion - it's a marked improvement! Still many people in America are fond of this album, perhaps due to a melancholy air.
