Head Like A Hole, 13 (1993)
Last year Head Like A Hole decided to release their debut full-lengther and take it on tour – I missed the show, but didn’t miss getting the LP. I love the band – their best work still stands and they’re always a good live show. I’ve seen them a bunch of times and will always try to get along. But I wasn’t in town when they first started, the 13 era and the even earlier years…but I do remember, fondly, hearing Fish Across Face and sorta wondering what the fuck I was hearing (and seeing) – but in the best possible way. I’ve been on board since then. And though I think the band should have moved to Las Vegas and got a residency in a dive bar 20 years ago (they’d be playing there still, nailing it) I’m also glad they’re ours to keep. Booga even signed my copy of this album. Shot!
