Being the adventures of a band in London with unremarkable haircuts and an arguably eccentric approach to disco. There are three of us: Betamax does the drumming, Vaughn Stokes takes care of the bass, Jordan concerns himself mainly with the Rhythm Guitar, and we all croon like fools. www.hotheadshow.com

In other news, Jordan has been moonlighting on recordings helmed principally by Jonah "The Truth" Brody of Super Best Friends Club. His (Jordan's) Mbira chops only really come out to play on these rare session gigs, on this occasion committed to binary in the brand new recording facility deep in the guts of Homerton Psychiatric Hospital, after the Chilean sound engineer's ultimately job-costing decision to leave the band alone in the building whilst he (the sound Chilean engineer) went to pick up his girlfriend (an accomplished klezmer cellist) from the night bus stop:

Soundcloud.com/hot-head-show is still the place to go for live tracks, rehearsal jams and other obscurities, which will still be downloadable for nothing.

In the mean time, Betamax is living in his van and spending a lot of time on his fairly banging side-project Soccer 96, whilst Jordan finally has some time to figure out whether a brass slide might be better than a traditional glass bottleneck. When Vaughn returns, he will go from the airport directly to meet us in the recording studio to lay down Fingers and Bethany, so that we can push some new product to the people before the summer's out.

But assuming we do make it to the 3000 heads unknowingly awaiting us at Show #1 in Buffalo, we'll be banging out a couple of new ones, one of which is pretty odd, and then we'll probably do something like this too:
Should you see us wondering the streets of Manhattan, Buffalo, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Covington, Brooklyn, Manchester Tennessee, New Hope Pennsylvania, Philadelphia again, or Toronto, do please come say hi. We'll probably give you a lighter that says Hot Head Show on it.

It cost a tenner and the only rule is that if you come in, you have to fight. We'll be playing an extended set with a heavy jam feel in keeping with the action as it happens. Should be a banger.

Here at last the Lemon EP is made fully available for listening, downloading, embedding, inbedding, inthekitchening, or wherever. The first track is the whole EP as intended - one seventeen minute strip of ballsout bangbang. But for those who'd rather have the tracks individually, the record can now be downloaded as such from this same player. It's all free, but should land right there in iTunes next to the music you paid good money for. The HARD COPY of this EP, costing about a tenner, will contain three extra tracks - Ritalin, Some Money, and Circumspangle #1, and probably a lovely sticker too. It will also be housed in appropriately nifty packaging, which is being scored and die-cut as we speak:

The shows were occasionally shit but mostly hella. Live EP and various bits & video pieces are now being masticated furiously, should be ready soon. And then there's this next tour - Colonel Claypool has now formally requested that we open his shows in the US this summer. Which begs the question - are the people of America ready for bang bang? Whilst we scratch our chins over that, why don't you look at these:

Max's Rhythm by HOT HEAD SHOW
It needs a little work, but is going to be very banging indeed. This is one of five new tunes now being whittled lovingly in a basement in Dalston, splurges of which are bound to end up on here over the next few weeks. And I'm pretty sure I've got a new batch of live videos knocking around here somewhere.

This all started a few weeks ago, when we managed to score Mr Claypool's email address, and took it upon ourselves to pitch him our shit. As it happened he had a European tour coming up, and the need for a nifty little trio to warm up his crowds whilst they're checking their coats and getting a round in. But between the Yes from Les and the final confirmation there has passed a tense two weeks of Probably Maybe, whilst the booking agent and promoters checked the myspace, weighed us up against their favorite local bands, and punched numbers into the calculators on their blackberries, all the while murmuring secretively.
But as of this afternoon, it's officially a thing. Koko is already sold out, and the other dates are going fast - if you're an Italian Head or a German or Swiss Head, you best run straight down to the ticket shop. For American and Canadian Heads, and our original UK Heads who bin there from day, there will inevitably be a steady stream of blog continuing to gush frantically at your face and dribble down your chin and onto your trendy little shoes. There will also be MUSIC - our most pressing objective, before we start thinking about how we're going to feed ourselves on this tour, is to bang out some new SHOWTUNES.
Here's Jordan and Vaughn discussing concepts:
So watch out for that.
