Cool Thing Records 3rd release of 2020 comes in the form of The Horse Heads ‘Bit Rude’.
An absolute piledriver of a track – think Slaves, Idles, The Stooges – clocking in at just 2 minutes and 20 seconds, ‘Bit Rude’ is, according to vocalist and guitarist Ronaldo Rodriguez (what a name!), “the combination of our love for hip hop and dealing with pissed up customers working behind a bar.”
With several sweaty punk-rock basement shows and three pounding singles (all of which bulldozed their way onto Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music Drive Time Show) already under their collective belts, The Horse Heads are back with their own brand of urgency and anger that is quite frankly missing in music right now.
Cool Thing Records is an independent record label and artist development hub based in Southend On Sea, Essex. Set up in August 2014 by Asylums’ Luke Branch and Michael Webster, they’ve so far released music from Indian Queens, BAIT, Beckie Margaret, The Horse Heads and Suspects.
