With the release of their Reanimations Vol One compilation this week, Beyond The Wizards Sleeve have spent all day on a harrowing press slog.
With this in mind, Team Slutty Fringe opted to treat them to some light relieft and inaugaurate the cosmic psychedeliasongsmiths known to the taxman as R Norris and E Alkan into the hallowed hall of fame otherwise known as Favourite Musical Haircuts – loved by the great and the good.
Here be their nominations:
1. Brian Jones
That bowl head rules the roost, no contest!
2. Julian Cope (current style)
I mean what is going on? His psychic energy is radiating out through his rug. Top marks
3. Klaus Naomi.
Total eclipse of the barnet.
4. Phil Oakey (Human League circa late 1970s/early 1980s)
Not content with having one hairstyle, Oakey opted to have three at once. Good show, Philip!
5. Ian Hunter.
Mott the Hoople’s frontman has ringlets of the Gods. All the young dudes indeed.
Beyond The Wizards Sleeve Reanimations Vol.1 includes all of the BTWS re-animations to date: Late of the Pier, Chemical Brothers, Franz Ferdinand, Goldfrapp, Peter Bjorn and John, Midlake, Simian Mobile Disco and many more. Comes complete with an 8-page picture booklet, sleevenotes by the legendary Jon Savage plus an exclusive 60 minute mix of all the re-animations, reworked and mixed by Beyond The Wizard Sleever Erol Alkan.
