Excellent record now: short crunchy crackers and another one of my favorites. The Aheads from Herford were one of the first punk bands in the region of East Westphalia. 1975 they were founded as “Ron Age Band” and their first appearance was in 1977 at Hellepark under the name “Those Fuckin’ Aheads” named after rockers from the Crumb Comix. After the first punk songs from England could be heard through the radio broadcast by John Peel in Germany and by attending a concert by Wire, the band began writing their own songs. With their unconventional sound for its time the band led by former British soldier Andy Stillon known punk bands like the Dead Kennedys has enthusiastically. The Aheads debut was the ‘Freedom Of Speech EP’ and one year later two songs on the great Soundtracks Zum Untergang compilation. Then toured with Slime, Betoncombo and Middle Class Fantasies. After the tour the band recorded their only album in Berlin which was released by AGR. Their last gig was in 1982 at the Audimax in Bielefeld. After the dissolution of the band guitarist Bernd and drummer Werner played in the 80s in a number of not very long-lived bands. Under the name Roll On Roll Off they released the single “Fig. 320” and the self-produced mini album “Pussy Push” in 1988. Andy Stillion, the singer of the band died on 11. July 2010 in the morning. With his girlfriend on a boat trip to the Farne Islands, he collapsed on the boat. In 2011 the remaining band members published a showcase with all produced songs including a DVD supplement with photos of their active career.  LP comes with posters, bonus DVD and band history. Beautiful thing.
