Sonic decapitations brought to you by our own unique brand of instrumental strangeness!!
Why this name?
Well, my writing partner and I have a very dark sense of humour. When we are writing or jamming music that is pushing all of our musical buttons, it's common for one of us to say "It's shearing my head off!" Like the equivalent of having your mind blown but not as messy (unless you're a gusher).
Do you play live?
Yes, although, currently we are looking to replace a drummer and third guitarist so we can continue gigging in the SF Bay Area.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I'll get back to you on that.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Band History:
Headshear goes back about ten years to when I started playing with Deirdre Lynds. She is an incredible guitar player/composer and on top of that we just have a certain chemistry. I've played with a lot of other guitarists and always found it difficult to blend styles and have similar instincts.

Knowing that we wanted to play challenging instrumental music that is more akin to classical chamber music than say jazz fusion, with endless turns soloing ad nauseum, we perservered for 8 years looking for the right musicians. Lo and behold, our wonderful bassplayer, Van Spragins, showed up underneath my very nose. He's been with us for a little over 3 years.

Headshear started gigging in late 2001, making our debut at the Progressive Projections festival in San Francisco. From that point until March 2004, Matthew Guggemos was our esteemed kit player. We've also had the good fortune of having Igor Abuladze and Wally Scharold fill the role of our 3rd guitarist.
Your influences?
80's King Crimson, David Sylvian, Pink Floyd, Andy Summeers, classic progressive rock bands, old school funk, 20th century classical, Cocteau Twins, Zeppelin, etc..
Favorite spot?
