Saw no poll for these guys.
Saw no reason to not do one.
Saw no reason to not say they were NOT CRAP

Samey, but NOT CRAP.

Never understood the need to own more than one record by 'em, but great anthemic stuff all the same.

NOT CRAP.

Bedhead are the NOT CRAP band. I can think of exactly one band I might like more than them (Joy Division), and one band I like as much as them (The New Year, of course).

Bedhead never, never had a misstep. Tim Midgett has said something along the lines that Bedhead were the greatest band of the '90s (I can't remember the exact wording, so forgive me if I'm a little off...), and I agree with him. Aside from the aforementioned exception, Bedhead/The New Year are, to me, the best rock band there is/was.

Salut, Bedhead! You cannot be touched!

A couple of months ago, my wife went on vacation with her family for about a week (I coudn't get the time off). When she called and said she'd be home shortly, I put on "The Present", trying to time the song with her arrival, thinking it was a perfect soundtrack for somebody coming home late at night to embrace their loved one after a being away for awhile.

I had to start the song over a few times to get the timing right, but it was playing as she arrived. She didn't notice, but it was quite tender for me.

From the first ep to the Macha ep, this band had absolutely no idea what crap looked/smelled/felt like.

Not Crap to the nth degree

placeholder, here is that quote.

tmidgett wrote:bedhead, they were the great band of the 90s. this is the truth. you might say to yourselves, 'oh no, the great band was (insert band that was not the great band of the 90s here)!!!! tmidgetts, you are so wrong!! and what about (another band that was not the great band of the 90s, or probably even second place)???? comeon, you guy!' but time, she will show that i am right, for (band that was not the great band of the 90s), their music, while fine, will sound the dated music next to the bedhead. and (another band that was not the great band of the 90s, or second even!), no one will even remember how to spell their name. but bedhead--ah molto bellissima, eternal. so great. number one.

Mille grazie, Signore Weissenberger! I agree with these speakings of Signore Midgetti.

Bedhead, she is so great as to sometime making me want to, how you say, "throw the towels in?" I make the post about this so long times ago. Is stupid, but true!

probably saw them a hundred million times (ok, less) in dfw as a teen. feel asleep on a couch in the venue at least a couple of times cause it sounded so right. love them, love them. especially beheaded. they could sound so so intense.

One of the best records ever made 'what fun life was'.
My first true love and I would have sex to no other record. She sent them a letter saying as much. They sent back tons of stickers and shirts and records. Fuck yeah Bedhead is not crap.

"Leper" is "Lepidoptera" backwards/upside down!

So cool! So beautiful!

Bedhead and The New Year are easily top 5 bands for me. "Transaction de Novo," "What Fun Life Was" and "The End Is Near" are all perfect records in my book. And I like my book.

Bedhead, the music so beautiful! So perfect, as to make a grown man cry! The songs are so as to freeze every priceless moment of your life and create for one slideshow in yr head. Of course!

I look to those who speak the words of hate to this band in only one way

Definitely NOT CRAP.

I've got to say that I distinctly remember the first time I heard their first LP, a friend of mine from high school had just bought it when it came out and was playing it through a Fender practice amp because his stereo wasn't working. It still sounded amazing.

I saw them several times in Austin opening for various bands and remember one particular show where they opened for Superchunk at the Liberty Lunch in Austin. Some dumb kids who didn't know any better sat down looking bored and kept doing a lot of fake yawning and talking shit about how boring they were, so my friends and I started making fun of them. In addition, some guy kept yelling out for songs based on the actual order on the album: "Play song number 7!"

I still listen to their albums, which I can't say for a lot of bands from that same era. I think 20 years from now I'll still listen to their music.

I'm confused. I had an album by a band called Bedhead many years ago. I didn't like it at all. Can this be the same band?

I had a very small frame of reference at the time but I remember thinking this is like Mogwai playing Irish folk music.

Perhaps this was because I was a teenager who'd only heard one instrumental band before and immediately associated the two.

You EA bastards. Now I have to go find this band and if I end up liking them I'll be kicking myself for selling/giving/throwing away an album when I was too young to know any better!

BUMP this shit, yo!!

These guys are so goddamn good it's not even funny. I was hanging out with a girl I hadn't seen in a while and she put in "Beheaded"...truth be told, I almost started crying like a little bitch. So, so good. So, so N/C.

not crap, these Heads of Beds!

truth be told, i only have Transaction De Novo, but it's such a perfect little record i almost feel apprehensive about getting any others. i remember owning the one with the arm on the cover and thinking it was all right but that ultimately it didn't hold a candle to Transaction, so i sold it. (i get rid of a lot of okay records just to make room for the stuff that really does it for me.)

so, any suggestions as far as what to get next?

Yeah, start by going and buying back that first e.p. . Then get Beheaded. That is probably the next best after Transaction, but WhatFunLifeWas has some epic stuff on it. I've notice some posts here expressing indifference toward WFLW, but I think it's pretty damn good. There is also an e.p. with Macha and 7-inches that you can seek out. I believe that somebody put a song of theirs on the gmail acct as well.

Basically, if it says "Bedhead" on it, buy it. Unless that hair product company of the same name put out some sort of compilation, I probably wouldn't buy that.

speak for yourself, Mr. Tree. i bet that compilation would rule!

it would probably have "Voices Carry" by Til Tuesday, that Voxtrot song that's seemingly on every other girl's myspace page, an electroclash version of "Just A Touch of Love", "Rhythm is a Dancer" by Snap!, maybe a little uptempo Britrock and "Rock Steady" by The Whispers.

two words: PARTY --- CENTRAL!
