Recorded in CBC’s studio live-to-air in 1986 while on tour with Skinny Puppy, Severed Heads’ Brave New Waves session is absolutely perfect. Includes never-before heard versions of songs from The Big Bigot and Dead Eyes Open, including the band’s hit, Harold & Cindy Hospital, as well as amazing commentary by the always charismatic Tom Ellard.
First formed in 1979, Severed Heads is an Australian electronic and experimental project led by Tom Ellard since 1981. In the mid- to late-80s, the project saw its biggest commercial successes with releases on Nettwerk, Billboard chart positions, and huge European and American tours. The band’s 1986 tour with Skinny Puppy resulted in this now infamous Brave New Waves recording, which to date has never been released commercially.
Severed Heads’ Brave New Waves session is released for the first time by Artoffact Records on CD, Vinyl, and digital formats. The recording is taken from CBC Archives reels and remastered at Grey Market Mastering in Montreal, by Harris Newman.
