British post-rock legends Billy Mahonie return with their first new material in 24 years. Formed in the first wave of British post-rock alongside the likes of Mogwai in the late '90s, John Peel favorites Billy Mahonie return with the first new music from their original line-up. Whilst their debut album The Big Dig, released in 1999 on Too Pure Records, is considered a classic of the post rock genre, Billy Mahonie always crafted their intricate music with memorable hooks and melodies and performed it with energy and gusto. Field Of Heads sees the band returning with their classic original line-up of Gavin Baker (guitar), Howard Monk (drums), Hywell Dinsdale (bass and guitar), and Kevin Penney (bass and guitar). Whilst this line-up has been semi active for a few years, no new material came to fruition. Recorded over two long weekends on either side of the Covid 19 lockdowns, the band tracked at The Church studios, owned by their former collaborator and front of house engineer Paul Epworth, with senior engineer Luke Pickering at the controls, allowing Field Of Heads to quickly take shape. New single "Kaiju" gives the music world the first taste of Field Of Heads and right from the off, it's classic Billy Mahonie. Immediately bursting into life with the energy and melody that is so unique to their sound, Howard's driving drums thrust the music ahead as the guitars and synths weave their way around them. Intricate and shifting, but never at the expense of a tune that sticks in your head. Furthermore, Billy Mahonie now have their own label, Whistling Sam Projects.
