Broken hands, lost Rickenbackers and sliced tendons aside, The Heads’ Simon Price (guitar, vocals), Hugo Morgan (bass), Wayne Maskell (drums) and Paul Allen (guitar) hit many highs during the time of “Everyone Knows We Got Nowhere”. The first British band to release records on Frank Kozik s famed Man’s Ruin label, they also recorded two Radio 1 sessions (Mark Radcliffe and their second John Peel session), were featured on various scene-defining compilations and toured Europe and the US West Coast. “Everybody Knows We Got Nowhere” is the band’s favorite album; it represents the full force of The Heads’ psychedelic pummel, their trippiest most psyche collection, brutal yet beautiful. Strap in. Let go.

The hardcover / full color boxset is limited and numbered to 1000 copies only: it features the remastered original double album in its gatefold sleeve, the double album of extra material from the time – also in a deluxe gatefold sleeve. A single live album “bootleg” (pressed on neon yellow vinyl) from the 2000 USA tour called “California Jams”, and a 70+ minute CD of material that was previously unreleased, culled from the dozens of rehearsal / demo archival CDrs that Simon Price has from this time.

This lavish box set also includes the following(!):
A full size 8 page booklet with sleeve notes, pictures and track information.
A full size 8 page photo /tour diary attempting to detail some of the USA 2000 tour.
A 4 foot by 2 foot folded poster with the classic blue/red girl t-shirt image.
A vinyl sticker of above image.
A download code postcard with a link to download the two LPs as MP3.
-Please note that the tote bag pictured is no longer available-
