HEADCOATS, THEE - The Messerschmitt Pilot's Severed Hand LP
A reissue of THEE HEADCOATS' classic, recorded in March 1997 and originally released in 1998. It features a re-recording of their classic single "We Hate the Fucking NME" as well as fan-favorites "Punk Rock Ist Nicht Tot" and "Organic Footprints." BILLY CHILDISH on The Messerschmitt Pilot's Severed Hand: "We recorded this LP live, off the cuff. Most of the song lyrics I sketched out the night before and then made up the tunes on the spot. We used 2 mic's—one for bass and drums (set up between the two) and one for voice and guitar. (both through a Selmar 15 amp). We used the old Revox G-36 1/2 track machine that we inherited off of Tony Pink, local jazz player in 1977. I've always had soft spot for this LP as it embodies my first idea of what a punk rock group would be."
