The Exceptionally Superb Fourth album

Your opportunity to play a part in making this historically significant event happen

We have all the songs written for the next chapter of the Big Head adventure. A new album which will be released later in the year.

Follow the story as we release updates/videos etc. Please help us make this happen by visiting our store and buying something. Every little helps from simply pre-ordering the record in some way, or maybe sponsoring the album to have your name on the sleeve, having us visit your house to play an acoustic show, or any of the other ideas we’ve dreamt up.

We really want this to be a journey we all do together.

In April 2018 we toured Argentina and Uruguay and a local company sponsored Karen Jones by making a set of custom drumsticks engraved with her name. Only one pair of those sticks survive the hammering she gave the drums each night. These treasures can be yours to do with as you wish. Bang the drums with them, sleep with them under your pillow ……… the possibilities are endless.

It’s only a small piece of plastic. But what a beautiful small piece of plastic. and it will be used to make such melifluous, flowing bass lines the like of which have never been heard.

Please note, when used the picks become worn round the edges. This picture is “before”.

Alternatively you may prefer a guitar pick touched by the hands of gods, apart from the one which belongs to a guitar goddess.

The most fun part of recording is the mix. Come and hear how the songs finally come together. How the effects are added, and the levels of voices and instruments tweaked.

You can even butt in yourself and make a suggestion. There will be absolutely no threats of violence if you do but you may or may not be ignored.

And, of course, by definition it is impossible for anyone to have heard the songs before this time.

Mixing takes place in South West London at the studio of Sean Genocky, a man with a very fine moustche.
