Biography

In the begining there were three bands, all three bands folded. Three beings, Vic Vibeskin, Emerald Greenshade and Jefferson Jesu formed another band called ‘Moon’, the year was 1985. Moon took up residency in a delapidated rehersal room called ‘The Dead Fly’ (a hot spot for local freaks and musos). After some time working up new tunes and soundscapes, the three members of Moon recruited Tjunca B Low on keyboards. After a little more time, Moon then recruited Professor Bubblekeys who took over on keys and Tjunca B Low relocated on to bass. At the same time as this was taking place, long time childhood friend of Vic, Jefferson and Emerald, Phil ZaPeep, joined in on guitar. Thus, Moon had multiplied into a 6 piece psycho-punk drama.

It was now early 1986. By June, a friend and associate by the name of Webb had suggested that Moon needed a new name. He suggested ‘Lord Snooty’s Giant Poisoned Electrick Head” courtesy of The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band song, ‘My Pink Half of the Drainpipe’. After two gigs with this name, it was deemed necessary to shorten it to ‘Poisoned Electrick Head’.

Within nine months of the creation of PEH, Emerald Greenshade was contemplating relocating to New Zealand to become a sheep farmer. With this concern PEH scanned for a replacement frontman.
