Bedhead Does The Stranglers’ “Golden Brown”

Bedhead's Cover Of The Stranglers; Bedhead Retrospective Box Set Out 11/11 on Numero Group

Today, Behead premiered a previously unreleased song off their retrospective box set Bedhead: 1992-1998, out 11/11 on Numero Group. Bedhead had been playing their cover of The Stranglers’ “Golden Brown” occasionally for a couple of years by the time 1995 rolled around, and had the idea to record it with drummer Trini Martinez’s uncle, Trini Lopez, singing the classic drug-tinged song. As distance and circumstances led to those plans fizzling (people used to have to be in the same room as the master tape to record a part, kids!), the band ultimately decided to record the vocal track themselves, life moved on, and this amazing cover got lost to the winds of time. Luckily, it has been unearthed for the massive box set, which includes Bedhead’s three genre-defining albums (WhatFunLifeWas, Beheaded, Transaction De Novo), a bonus disc of B-sides, singles, and rarities, and a gorgeous 40-page book with photos and tales from the Dark Ages.
