Third Man saysTHE UNDERWEAR HEADS
long-rumored to have been a made-up band. Evidence of their existence
over the past 30 plus years had been reliant upon a picture sleeve for a
single that never came with a record. Due to the copycat nature of punk
collectors' want lists, the legend of the U-Heads extended far-and-wide
as "the sleeve without a record." Truth of the matter is that vinyl was
pressed for the release, but due to a manufacturing error all copies
were defective and were unceremoniously sent to the garbage dump while
some sleeves managed to slip out into the wild. Third Man was able to
track down band member John Crenshaw (brother of esteemed Michigan-born
songwriter Marshall Crenshaw) who instantly claimed he'd not heard
someone utter the band's name since 1983. Bandmates Nick Canterucci,
Gary Lyshak and Bruno Borroni were conferenced in, an early-generation
master was located in Australia and the world is finally privileged to
hear the Tangmania EP. The six-songs on this self-recorded 7" run the
gamut from silly drum machine punk, outre experimental tape manipulation
and art rock spaciousness.
