Synopsis

Amazon.com
Recorded for Howie B's Pussyfoot label (and featuring a guest appearance by him on "Buggin' & Breakin'"), the Headrillaz' debut has a simple goal: to get you out on the dance floor. To this end, the trio mixes live guitar, bass, and drums with programmed break beats, dub effects, and Saul's fluid rapping to produce a punk rock-techno-hip-hop hybrid not unlike Prodigy's, but with even more adrenaline. The Headrillaz proudly list the beats per minute for each of the eight tracks on the album--"Trepanning" clocks in at an amazing 155 b.p.m.--but they're smart enough to know that all that energy would be wasted if the grooves weren't paired with melodic bass lines and cool synth and sax samples that will keep you listening even after you're too exhausted to move any more. --Jim Derogatis

CD Reviews

Not too shabby
Average Joe | kalifornia | 11/27/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I like lots of so-called "techno" music, and Headrillaz ranks up at the top of my list. Like Crystal Method, this CD is great, I've had it since the dawn of time, and I'm still egarly awaiting Headrillaz's newest CD (if they make one). Things like this, when great bands don't make more CDs is what had FSOL win me over- they have a new CD almost every six months (okay, not really, but each one will hold your interest at least that long).Overall, Headrillaz is a winner. Just beware: after the first twenty-or-so times of listening to Screaming Headz, it gives you a headache.... [ yes, from headbanging too long :-) ]"
Prodigy & Chem. Bros. in a wreck fighting the Beastie Boys..

"Move over Prodigy and Chemical Bros. here's something 'meaner!' I mean ferocious beats galor implicating hints of a post-industrial, break-beat, trip-hop, funk album; w/ all that said and done add a dash of the Beasties on hallucinagens and you feel what I mean!!!..."
