CAUSTIC TRUTHS "Headwound recalls a time when punk music really didn't need to be about heartache, being stabbed in the back, or really anything in particular. It's about drinking, fighting, and operating a forklift? Headwound is like the punk rock Sienfield. It's about everything and nothing all at once. Musically it's fast, loose and very rock n' roll. Solos flail out of control, while vocals spit snotty rants over top. It's basic, to the point punk music and in a time when everyone is far too serious, this stands out like a sore thumb and makes me want to grab a beer and dance like an idiot."
NO FRONT TEETH (UK) "Hard-hitting punk rock served up New Jersey style: fast, powerful and strictly no compromise! The New Jersey punk attack! All the best characteristics of punk, Oi! and street rock n roll rolled into one chaotic weapon. New Jersey certainly boasts the toughest in punk rock and the best thing is that it's a really exclusive sound. A lot of US bands who play Oi! soaked punk really feed off the whole English thing, the COCKSPARRER sound, but not the NJ bands; that's so great- the state has created it's own breed. I'm a total sucker for this stuff so I'm bound to say it rules but it really does- I can be pretty specific about what grabs me and I have a real problem if a band sounds put-on so when it done as well and sincerely as HEADWOUND; hell I got no choice!"
