Cardinal Fuzz and Sunburned Records (aka Manhand) are proud to present Headless, the latest LP from the nebulous free-rock collective out of Massachusetts, Sunburned Hand of the Man. Eclectic and essential as they have ever been, Headless is a crucial entry to Sunburned’s wildly prolific and shamanic catalogue.
Entering their third decade of furtive and fried transmissions, Sunburned not only manage to to live and breathe, but are producing some of their best work. Championed by the likes of Julian Cope, Thurston Moore and Byron Coley (who once called them a “human zoo”), Sunburned recorded Headless back in January 2017 during four days of detainment at Jason Meagher’s Black Dirt Studio in upstate New York. The project was originally released as Intentions in an edition of 20 cassettes as part of Meagher’s Microdose series.
Released for the first time on vinyl, this 2020 edition is a 300 vinyl pressing presented in a 350gsm gloss laminated cover with download code. Headless features a varsity, five-strong Sunburned lineup with founders John Moloney and Rob Thomas alongside Jeremy Pisani, Ron Schneiderman and Gary War.
Recorded and mixed at Black Dirt Studio, January 26-29, 2017 by Jason Meagher - No Neck Blues Band. (Parts of "Framework" recorded at Conrad's Cosmic Cottage.) Sounds by John Moloney, Jeremy Pisani, Ron Schneiderman, Robert Thomas, Gary War.
