Robert Miller In a way it's the pleasant equilibrium of the Heads catalogue, fusing the past sounds with a now well cultivated and obtuse pop sensibility. A truly pioneering body of work that contains some of the most interesting electronic music the early 2000's had to offer, all without falling into any recognisable genre. Favorite track: Russia (op1 version).

SynthoElectro I first heard this album back in early 2000 and it hit me like every poppy "Severed Heads" album does, it still does to this day. The entire album is amazing, worth a listen and a buy! Favorite track: Kittenette (op2).

Robert Lees This album is chock full of Tom Ellard's funky little eccentric rhythm's and found sound. The man is a master and horribly underrated. Favorite track: That Funky Pervert from Des Moines (op1.2).

about

Op was released in a number of editions, magazine style from 2002 to 2007. A great deal changed over that time.

Op1 had some technical problems which led to Op2 being announced as a replacement. While that was underway, a series of updates Op1.1, Op1.2 and so on led to the idea of recording and releasing in small continuing amounts - an ever expanding album.

Op2 came and while it repaired some of the troubles of Op1, some listeners still preferred the previous edition. Nevertheless it did quite well.

Op2.5 was a full scale release in its own right - called 'Millenium Cheesecake' it paralleled the older 'Eighties Cheesecake' in being simple pop tunes for the moment.

Op3 was a very different web only release, and was the last recordings made by Severed Heads. The difference between this and Op1 demonstrated SH's change of interest just before disbanding.

Op4 was a project to remix and remaster all the Op tracks. It was online from 2009-2011. All the recordings here are selected from the Op4 versions.
