ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
HEADLESS HUMAN CLONES

Named after the latest advances in genetic engineering, the ever evolving rock group Headless Human Clones (HHC) formed one steamy summer night in a southeast Portland basement. Evidence examined to date indicates that a spontaneous chemical reaction ocured when two high school chums from New Jersey, songwriter Paolo Weatherbee and veteran blues guitarist Dave Hopkins, joined with West Coast drummer Mike Schmitt and the innovative genius of keyboardist Don Henson. The result was an exciting new rock combination which quickly escaped into the surrounding environment.

With edgy, sarcastic lyrics set to upbeat pop tempos, blending sounds from surf to techno, this infectious foursome promptly proceeded to clone fans throughout the Northwest, one obscure venue at a time. As their sound spread, a cult following developed and Headless Human Clones have now been heard world wide from Europe to Australia. Their debut CD, Get In Line (2001), as well as their single release Bushbaby (2003), received international praise, with several cuts breaking the charts on mp3's most popular downloads nationwide.

In 2003, Headless Human Clones began to divide and mutate as Schmitt and Henson pursued a rapidly growing side project. Meanwhile, Weatherbee and Hopkins continued to experiment with and expand new material. With the discovery and integration of percussionist DJ Sarapina, Headless Human Clones continued developing as a semi-electric trio combining electric guitar and bass with organic world rhythms. Finally, in 2005 the team was joined on kit drums by Los Angeles native Don Viramontes and a new infectious foursome was born. Viramontes' rhythm style gives the band a sharp edge while freeing Sarapina to expand on his myriad musical talents, adding a new dimension to the group's range of expression. The latest Headless Human Clones album, 140/90, features Sarapina on percussion, trumpet, harmonica and vocals.

140/90 (say, "one forty over ninety")

140/90 is reminiscent of our debut effort, Get in Line (also available at CD Baby), in that the tracks on 140/90 features a unique lyrical sense, eclectic rhythmic and melodic mixtures, and a genuine sense of humor. But unlike our first CD, 140/90 was produced in-house, which allowed for, if not directly caused, a lot of risky experimentation tempered by nearly endless re-mixes. Instrumentally, since we no longer have a keyboardist, we created new arrangements with more predominant guitar tracks and the addition of trumpet, harmonica, and percussion tracks, as well as the occasional tastefully-executed quiet space.

Some of the songs date back to our high school days ("Take off your Clothes"), others were staples of our set when Mike and Don were in the band and have since been rearranged to work with our new lineup ("Swingin', "Get Off"), and others are brand new ("Get Along with Me", "The Government's out to Get Me"). Stylistically, 140/90 covers realms as diverse as surf, ska, r&b, classic rock, and electronica, yet, the CD has an undeniable flow to it.
