Biography

Sydney, Australia (1979 – 2008)

An Australian electronic group formed in Sydney, Australia in 1979, Severed Heads have released albums ranging from to influenced music.

The original members were Richard Fielding and Andrew Wright, and were soon joined by Tom Ellard. This later changed to Garry Bradbury, Paul Deering, and Tom Ellard; Ellard has been the only one to remain throughout the group’s career, with changing lineups throughout its two and a half decades of existence, later working mainly with Stephen Jones. Robert Racic was an integral part of the band during the late eighties/early nineties.

Severed Heads performed a final concert in Sydney in January 2010. Tom Ellard uploaded a farewell video of Sevs In Space to Youtube, which may be considered as a requiem of sorts.

In early 2008, Ellard added the following text to the bottom of the official site’s front page, “Severed Heads do not have a MySpace page. It is a fake. The band is dead,”. (www.sevcom.com).

    They were underground electronic band, exprimented with noise and sampling (like other industrial bands), they appeared on comilations with industrial music so they were industrial. If they were not, no one were.

    "it was a part of a joke. severed heads is such a dumb name. i hate it by the way. we were trying to fool people to think that we were industrial, and it worked."

    As they probably (not) meant it to be the 'Dead eyes opened' does what Severed Heads projected in their ideas/goals. Make way for the other Sevcom works. It does that, but might take decades for some people to understand.

    I'm pretty sure I didn't hear Dead Eyes Open when it was originally released. A few years ago I chanced upon Come Visit the Big Bigot and it's become one of those albums I just crave a listen to every now and then. Best sound to come out of Oz apart from half of Dead Can Dance?
