The Fuckin' Flyin' A-Heads - Swiss Cheese Back - Watching TV




1st off i have to thank my man Mullet over @ Cosmic Doom.com for the turn on to this amazing masterpeice i am about to unfold into yer lap today. I had never heard of this record or band for that matter until he dropped the knowledge on me so thanks my man!

Not much i could dig up on "The Fuckin' Flyin' A-Heads" but what i can gather from the insert is that they were from Honolulu, Hawaii, which to me makes it even the more weird, but that's just me thinking that Hawaii couldn't possibly be as caught up with the times when this was recorded and was recorded live Jan 25, 1980 so i couldn't be more wrong. This was released on Otaro records and states to be played at HIGH VOLUME!! Screw Limitations!!! Screw limitations indeed!!!

The musicians consisted of:

Howard Nishioka - Guitar & Vocals, Eric "Sep" Ishii - Vocals, Pranks, and Dan Garrett - Drums, Bob wilson - Bass.

Behjan Mirhadi apparently wrote an Ugly Things article about them in issue 19 but i do not own nor can i find the article....

Enjoy these out-of-time, out-of-their-element, outcast bunch of freaks from the island of Oahu (?) , making an unholy din & some wild-ass psychedelic punk rock in the late 1970s...(description courtesy of http://detailedtwang.blogspot.com/)


I just found out that this 7 inch has just been reissued. Check it out here... De Stijl
