Stunt Clown the first Lp from New Zealand wonder
band the Headless Chickens. Recorded in early 1988 it
sold well and received positive critical response.
The material on the album is quite diverse, though lacking
in direction, and was at the time quite different to the
typical' NZ music sound. Do The Headless Chicken
is described as "an epic featuring at least two scintillating
guitar riffs and ending with a drum machine that's
almost terrifying." Star At Night was also a highlight with its
cynicism and sarcasm evident in the line
"Hip hooray, hip hooray, here comes another day."
The first single off the album was Donka which remains a
favorite with fans.
A tour of Australia was undertaken in late 1988.
