the underwear heads
THIRD MAN RECORDS
the 6 songs on this self-recorded 7" run the gamut from silly drum machine punk, outre experimental tape manipulation & art rock spaciousness.
recorded at rock 'n' roll hdqs fall 1980, the underwear heads were long-rumoured to have been a fictional creation. evidence of their existence over the past 30 plus years had been reliant upon a picture sleeve for a single that never came with a record. third man was able to track down band member john crenshaw (brother of esteemed michigan-born songwriter marshall crenshaw) who instantly claimed he'd not heard the band's name uttered since 1983. bandmates nick canterucci, art lyshak & bruno burroni were conferenced in, an early-generation master was located in australia & the world is finally privileged to hear the ‘tangmania ep’.
