The Heads have just reissued their second album, the ferocious frazzle of Everyone Knows We Got Nowhere. Paul Allen left the band a while ago, and at first he spent time building up a terrifyingly large record collection and enhancing his psychic know-how. He then formed a band with Gareth Turner and Jesse Webb called Anthroprophh, who have now unleashed their second album Outside The Circle, and like The Heads best work, it's enough to send your head in a spin, only this time with a few surprise twists and turns.

Allen’s voice undulates with liquid phase; drones ring out in to space and crash into rocket ship synths; guitars screech and wail and sing amidst cacophonous soundscapes. Every note and beat hold within them a sense of malevolence, as if the band are poised on the edge of madness. Some of the songs feel like a cathartic release, an act therapy, or perhaps even exorcism..."
