Oscar introduced me to Moon Duo a couple of years ago now and I fell immediately in love with their EPs 'Escape' and 'Killing Time'. I went to see Moon Duo when they played in Auckland earlier this year and ended up talking to them after the show. They are as great and friendly a couple of people you're likely to meet I must say. I put it to them then (I think? I was pretty drunk to be honest) that they might do something for Head Full of Snakes. Anyway I recently got in touch with Ripley (guitar/vocals) and he was totally into it. I couldn't believe it actually, I thought there'd be managerial bullshit we had to go through etc, but no, it's been a real straightforward process and the song is about to go away to get made into a flexidisc to be released with our 3rd issue of Head Full of Snakes.
Thanks so much Ripley and Sanae. Anytime you're back in this neck of the woods let us know if we can help out in anyway at all. Might I even suggest a South Island show? I reckon we could get a pretty good thing happening here in the 'shitty city' of Christchurch.
I think the plan for the future of HFoS is to put out a flexi with each issue. We're considering this anyway. And running a sort of HFoS record label as a sideline/insert in an ongoing way. I really like the idea that all these different things are coming together in one project – which, when I think about it, was always the idea with Head Full of Snakes anyway, to take all the different crap I think about and obssess over into one place...

PS. Jimi kindly engraved inside mine "Jimi's bike is faster" and then also "Triples Rule". Just trying to figure out how to change the 't' to a 'c'...
