Heavens to Murgatroyd, Even! It’s Thee Headcoats! (Already)
1990 | Sub Pop
I once asked someone – who I thought would know – which Headcoats album I should start with. I’d heard an awful lot about them, but never heard them. They kind of intimidated me, like Black Flag or This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb, before I’d heard either of them. Just intimidating looking and sounding bands.
So I asked a guy in Other Music or Kim’s or somewhere, “Where’s a good place to start with Thee Headcoats?” His response was something like, “Oh, it doesn’t really matter. You can start with whatever cover strikes your eye. They all basically sound exactly the same.” So, I waited until I stumbled upon Heavens to Murgatroyd… in a cutout bin, and snapped it up.
