  • Look at the physical disc.



Severed Heads refused to make new music from 2007 - 2016, as there was no compelling reason to do so. But when asked by Ears Have Ears to perform a new 20m piece on air at FBi Radio, it came to mind that BUGHLT had recently offered to cut a 20m long acetate. That the acetate lathe once made discs for radio play inspired a piece formed from 78 rpm records that we would both perform and cut to disc. We were pleased to present the first new SH tracks in 9 years. It's Stewart's first writing credit too!

Quite consciously the music hearkens back the kind we made back when first starting out. We are relearning the sounds we make.

You can find more about the performance and Ears Have Ears On FBi Radio here: www.facebook.com/earshaveears/?fref=ts

This recording was made after the radio show, with some adjustments to the composition.

There was an extremely small number of acetates available from BUGHLT separate to this download. (Please note that each disc is hand made. They are mono. Acetates are long lasting but not as long as pressed vinyl.)
