Faxed Head is a death metal side project headed by Trey Spruance of Mr. Bungle fame. The band’s bios and lyrics describe them as ‘teenage survivors of a suicide pact gone horribly awry,’ and place them in small-town Coalinga, California. Band members’ identities are generally kept secret and the band may have a somewhat revolving lineup. Much of their music is a combination of speed/death metal and tape noise and effects. Songs occasionally cross into lampooning genres like classical (House of Spirits), a capella crooning (The Four Freshmen), and rap (Coalinga Love, a parody of California Love by Tupac Shakur).

The band released three albums, ‘Uncomfortable But Free’ (Amarillo 1995), ‘Exhumed At Birth’ (Amarillo 1997) and ‘Chiropractic’ (Web of Mimicry, 2001), but is currently not active and no plans for recording have been made public as of June, 2008.

The best known lineup consists of Trey Spruance (as Neck Head) - guitar, Gregg Turkington (AKA Neil Hamburger, as McPatrick Head) - vocals, Brandan Kearney (as Jigsaw Puzzle Head) - bass, Phil Franklin (as LaBrea Tar Pits Head) - drums, and James Goode (as Fifth Head) - electronics.

    There's nothing random here. There is a very, very systematic vision of production going on here. It's actually quite sophisticated.

    Wow! This is like the Bungle Speed/Thrash/Noise songs, only heavier, chaotic-ier, and noisier..

    They come from all over the world to be here Immigrants in search of a brighter hope They come from the womb of the evil whores Locals who sell me gloom through dope They come from Kettleman City down the road Pretty woman offering me Amway soap They come to Coalinga to build the gallows Search our stores for some good strong rope
