Legendary Australian rock band Horsehead has signed with powerhouse independent record label Golden Robot Records who will be re-releasing the band’s catalogue and previously unreleased material internationally throughout 2018. The band’s first two albums, Horsehead and Onism, will also be made available digitally for the first time ever!
Also planned for release are an album of B-sides, the band’s 1999 Triple J Live At the Wireless set, and The Lost Album, a collection of tracks never released! Golden Robot Records will also issue a full vinyl box set to be called The Legacy, featuring liner notes by veteran music writer Jeff Jenkins: “Horsehead are my all-time favourite band,” Jeff says. “The shortest review I’ve ever written was a Horsehead live review. It said simply, ‘If there’s a better band in this world, I’d love to see it.’ Twenty-five years later, I stand by that statement. I am beyond excited that Mark and his team at Golden Robot Records are giving the Horsehead catalogue the respect it deserves.”
With all of Horsehead’s material available in the one place for the first time ever, their legacy can now be secured. Details on the reissues will be made available soon.
Horsehead burst onto the Australian rock scene in 1992, their members coming together from several iconic bands to produce something much greater than the sum of their parts and featured Scott Kingman (ex-Cattletruck) on guitar, Cameron McKenzie on guitar and Andy McLean on vocals (both ex-21 Guns), bassist Mick Vallance (Boom Crash Opera) and drummer Max Waugh (Uncanny X-Men).
They released three albums, Horsehead (1993), Onism (1996) and Goodbye Mothership (1999), before disbanding in 2000. Their hard rock was injected with melodic hooks and stadium-sized riffs that saw them become one of the most prolific bands of the ‘90s.
They performed at the 1993 Big Day Out and a few days later opened for Skid Row and Guns N’ Roses in Melbourne. The video for their debut single Oil and Water won best rock video at that year’s Kerrang! Awards.
Horsehead join an impressive and fast-growing roster at Golden Robot Records that includes Dizzy Reed, Rose Tattoo, The Superjesus, Mi-Sex, Steve Balbi, Steve Kilbey, Kilbey Kennedy, Ben Gillies, The Heartache State, The Cherry Dolls, The Lockhearts, High Tropics, Palace Of The King, The Iron Horses, The Kids and more.
