head shy

head shy was conceived as a kind of intermediary between spotty dog and secret safari. spotty dog has been putting out various rock-oriented type things by palmerston northerners since 1994, and secret safari made its entrance into the world of noisy improv in 1998, so head shy kind of fits in the middle there as a vehicle for things that aren’t really rock but aren’t really improv either. it’s for music which experiments with sound, texture and form, but doesn’t necessarily avoid rhythm, melody or structurern- headshy
essentially a lathe-cut (peter king’s pseudo-vinyl factory, now running from a permanent base of mt. sommers – inland of ashburton) only label, distributing small numbers of varied underground releases to a small following of international collectors and enthusiasts. with connections to the unearthing underground resource and paul hirst’s fine teledu records mail-order records website, head shy’s artists (such negative eh, log store, and the superb pumice) have been gaining in momentum and exposure, from hirst’s new base of melbourne, australia.
