a very special extended reissue of Headless Chickens' landmark work, Body Blow. Bundled up into a double LP (available on CD and vinyl) the selected tracks are a somewhat, historic culmination of the Headless Chickens' time over Body Blow years.

The newly remastered, extended reissue nods to the years between 1991-1994, covering original Body Blow tracks such as the two hit versions of Cruise Control, as well as nonalbum tracks like George (from third album `Greedy').

Trivia point: The latter remains Flying Nun's only #1 chart single to date. Along with remixes, you are further rewarded with rare cuts like their grizzly take on ABBA's Supertrouper.

In the most quintessential Headless Chickens way possible, Body Blow carries a mind and a sound of its own.

At the time, it was completely unlike anything else before it. Following its 1988 predecessor, the cult-favourite `Stunt Clown' (winner of the 2018 Taite Music Prize Classic Record), Body Blow would take the group to new, unchartered heights, reaching a wider audience while managing to stay true to their independent, artistic ways.

These years captured on record are a testament to the longevity of the Headless Chickens' bold creativity, and long term influence over a new generation of artists.
