ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Witty and inventive, allusive and capricious, accessible but with a rough edge of experimentation, "Ho Fat Wallet" sounds like most of the things music should be but rarely ever is.

The music Andy Diagram (trumpet) and Richard Harrison (drums) create together might be described as an irreverent mix of conflicting sonic styles, idioms and genres. Or , alternatively, a jazzy, funky, rocky, earthy, spacey, wacky, dead-pan, out to lunch type of sound.

"Basically, its an attempt to tie in what we do as a duo, improvising on trumpet and drums, with what you can do to embellish that basic sound in a studio," says Harrison of the music on "Ho Fat Wallet" Its something of a Jackson Pollock approach - throw the paint down and see what sticks"

Diagram's expertly splintered trumpet acts as jester narrator to a parade of songs as independent carnival floats, some are junkyard-ishly abstract, some of them simple groove - dirt pop, all of them odd, understated, original structures making their points and passing by.

"Spaceheads are trying things out for themselves. And that puts them way above 99% of the glibly re-run muso-fed jazz that clogs up our lives. Spaceheads, shoaled in by squat-world austerity are part of the present because they defer to no ones rules but their own. Thats an attribute more valuable than polish, or even knowledge" - Mark Sinker (wire magazine)
