Fury Of The Headteachers
It must be great to live in Sheffield these days at the hub of a seemingly endless production line of new interesting bands. I'm not talking about the ones which appeal to the mass media and make stacks of dosh, I'm talking about the plethora of exellent unsigned talent which circles around this great northern city. One of the best bands I've heard for some time celebrate under the rather brilliant moniker Fury Of The Headteachers. They have a sound which I'm sure Sonic youth would kill for. Loud pounding basslines, distorted guitars and a singer who wouldn't look out place in a Happy Flowers gig all make for one of the best and most individual sounds around. This lot are most certainly not bandwagon jumpers and I suspest that if you even suggested that to them you may have something larfe inserted in a place you would rather not.
Fury Of The Headteachers released their debut single "Fables" through Grace Records earlier this year and although it was limited to just 300 copies attracted good reviews. The bands second single "Farewell Comrade" is avaliable now. An album entitled "You Took A Scythe Home" is planned for early next year.
