What a stunning song; I have the seven inch and the lp. Issue it on CD along with the other stuff George; please! I thought this band was amazing and still do! The piano parts show classical influences and I love every song.
I wish I could have seen them live. I converted my vinyl to mp3s and still like the crackle of the vinyl that transferred with the music. Awesome album. My old man owned a copy, and it would've been one of the first albums I ever listened to. Love 'Schoolgirls' and my personal favourite 'The Ripper'. Anything happen with that unreleased material? I and my brother both rocketed to the nearest shop to buy your record back when it was released.
We did not have alternative music stations at that time, so it was amazing to hear such well crafted fresh new music. Your music still sounds very fresh and alive! It's most unfortunate that Americans my age and older had already been stuck in the classic rock time warp. The alternative stations, like CD, concentrate mainly on new music.
So where does that leave THB? No where. Somehow, someway, a CD must be produced. I'm going to start circulating your music to new and budding professional musicians who will perfect "covers" of your songs so "the masses" will get an appreciation for your musical artistry.
Long live The Head Boys music! Kickin the Kans was the best song, superbly produced, I have just played it to my Scottish girlfriend - should have been a top ten hit. Got it on 7" as well as shape of things to come, brilliant. Thisis a wee gem, forgot the bands name a few years ago,never mind got it now and am I glad,watched the Head Boys on Youtube,magic brought back memories,I am 58 now but still think I'm in my early years when I here classics like this.
My son's are going to hear it they are in their early thirties to prove there's life after Oasis boys, this wee belter is the original Brit Pop like so many others back then. Pure nostalgia. Tickety-Boo Rab Dickson. This album has been at, or near, the top of my "must play" list for many years.
I recorded it on to CD, and from there to my MP3 player. I waited desperately for the follow-up album that never came. I really liked the lyrics, too. At times witty Can you take the mickey, Minnie Mouse? I love the shouted chorus in "We're gonna do it like this", and then the band takes off, The Headboys - The Shape Of Things To Come (Vinyl).
It's the little touches I love, too, like the guitar after "the prophet is screaming" in "The Shape of things to come", and the way the piano punctuates the chorus in the same song.
Is there any way to get the un-released material out? Don't forget "A little blackmail goes a long, long way". There are some odd things about the album though, like the way Silver Linings, an almost mournful song about a lost love She took the silver lining, and now the Sun don't shine anymore" is followed by Experiments.
Don't get me wrong, they're both good songs in their own way, but it's quite jarring to go from one to the other. Is this The Headboys - The Shape Of Things To Come (Vinyl) I have the original vinyl album, and I bought it because I liked the song "Kickin' the Kans". Those were The Headboys - The Shape Of Things To Come (Vinyl) days! After a few post gig beers with both bands believe it or not The Headboys The Headboys - The Shape Of Things To Come (Vinyl) my mate and I a lift home to Wythenshawe on their way to Birmingham.
The next day we both bought the album. I love the band, the first album is an absolute classic with not a duff track on it. I saw the band live the Marquee in I taped the show and found it recently in amazing condition, put it through wavelab and sent a copy to the band.
Wow, what a great live band they were too. Really hope the LP gets a CD release one day soon. They were De Railed by the Mainstream Mega. I'm heartbroken to report that Davy Ross died in The Headboys - The Shape Of Things To Come (Vinyl) As a tribute to Dave we have resolved to issue the 'lost' second album, it really was lost hopefully this year, through Pop Detective records.
If this is successful we may secure release of the original album. The problem on that front has been confused ownership rights with Universal who bought up RSO.
There is an extremely rare recording of us live at The Marquee - so rare I didn't know it existed until last week- bootlegged by Lou himself! Action stations - Vintage Headboys is on its way.
George, the idea of a new Headboys album is truly amazing. The first album is still among my favourite of all time, great riffs, melodies and lashings of hooks. Classic music from a classic band.
It was from and the priorty that night was not to overrun the curfew, don't think you made it that night because we simple could not get enough. I did get a reply from Lou about 2 months later thanking me for the CD of the show. Said he was surprised at how much he had forgotten the set. If not please contact me through myspace to Siam. I was very saddened to hear about Davie, great drummer may he R. P Looking forward to any new Headboys, thank you very much.
Take care. Just looked out the album as I got a USB turnrable as a present. Bought the album from a record store in Princes St Edinburgh in 79 I think. The band were in the store promoting the release of the album so I got a fully signed copy stating "I was the first in Edinburgh" Brill single and now I'm about to play the rest of it for the first time in 20 odd years! George, Just to put the record straight. I recorded the Marquee show you have heard not Lou.
I sent a copy to Lou after finding the taped I did of that show in I put it through wavelab and then onto to disc and sent it to an address in Dundee. Glad you liked it. Hey, could you put that Headboys song back up on the downloads page? How about that whole album? Where can I buy the album? I own the album and all the singles and made my own cd a couple of years back.
If you are fans of other 70's Scottish bands, then you may see finally a release on CD of the Zones album 'Under Influence' with bonus tracks, in the not to distant future We rocked to Headboys in the early 80's.
Fabulous stuff. Wonderful harmonies, lyrics and keyboards. Innovative and fun. I still have the album and still play it through the dual, quad amp and altec lansings Well thanks for your extraordinary patience everyone. Last week, September 26th to be precise, I met with Mark Hershberger aka The Pop Detective with the eponymous label and we've agreed to release 'Vintage Headboys' next spring. Now investigating re-master of the unreleased songs and digging through boxes of memorabilia.
Check out Pop Detective on Facebook for spontaneous news. Posted an old pic this evening. Album will be a tribute to the lovely Dave who sadly died last year. George da bass. Strange how life works. I had posted a video of the Headboy's "Shapes of things to come" on the obscure 80's video thread and ran across a blurb on a "long-lost album" they did after their lst and only lp. Well I guess that lp is now available on cd and will be released on Monday from a place in Jersey Tapes were found 33 years later.
Baked and transferred to digital Mastered by Headboy Calum Malcolm. No love for the Headboys?? No matter, the disc arrived the other day and yep, its them Good tunes and a nice booklet explaining how the songs came about etc Interesting, I picked up their debut album the other night at a record shop for 50 cents. The record itself is in near mint shape, and I've listened to the first side but there were a bunch of people over that night so I didn't really give it a proper listen.
I'll go back either tonight or tomorrow and listen to it again. From what I remember, I liked it. Location: Toronto, ON, Canada. ClarkophileDec 23, Cool, I'm listening now to the debut and I really like it!
I like it so much that I'm making a needle drop of it. Best 50 cents I've ever spent! ClarkophileDec 24, Can see me buying this, and then gnashing my teeth as to reasons why their " proper " album sits on the shelf still!!! Saw them on Top Of The Pops last night fromthey actually seemed to put a bit of life into a mimed performance, far better then most bands who were around then.
PJayBeOct 26, Count me in as another fan of their sole released album. I have the vinyl, which is still in pretty good shape, but would buy a CD release in a heartbeat.
