Alela Diane lends voice to Headless Heroes

Admittedly, I have no idea who or what Headless Heroes is. A new band with a cryptically sparse website? Perhaps. Names Records has just released a new song from the mystery band featuring a great contribution from one of my favorite contemporary female singer-songwriters, Alela Diane. It’s a cover of the Linda Perhacs classic “(Hey Now) Who Really Cares?”, I know that for darn sure. Aside from that, well, we’ll just have to wait and see. For now, enjoy the tune. And don’t miss Alela performing with Will Oldham at the Big Sur Benefit in two weeks!

UPDATE from HEADLESS HEROES (mystery solved…)

“Alela actually lent her vocal talents to a studio project under the name of Headless Heroes which consists of several musicians (Josh Klinghoffer, Joey Waronker, Woodrow Jackson III, Gus Seyffert, and Leo Abrahams) that recorded an album of covers together. The album was produced by Hugo Nicolson.

The Album titled ‘The Silence of Love’ will be released in November ’08 on Names Records (UK) and Fargo Records (for the rest of Europe). In the states the album will be released in May ’09 via the Headless Heroes record label.”

  7. It’s just too bad that Gus Seyffert is a retarded scientologist shitcracker.

    I once made what I thought was a fairly obvious joke about how much I loved Ray Parker Jr., particularly….the Ghostbusters theme song.

    This dumb motherfucker gives me this solemn condescending look….like he’s actually going to rip my world my part by saying…

    “Man…ray Parker stole the whole thing from Huey Lewis’s I want a new drug’ and then shakes his head at me.

    I gotta tell you man…it really fucked me up to hear the truth at last.

    I went home and took down all my Ray Parker Jr. Posters. I broke up my Ray Parker Jr. cover band…..

    God…L.A. was so much better before these uptight midwesterners took thier trust fund money, joined a cult and ruined everything with thier ignorance and complete stupidity.

    You can’t even go to silverlake without hearing racists play bluegrass spousal abuse anthems

    This illiterate peice of shit doesn’t even know the difference between Mike Patton and David Bowie….

    I had ‘sports’ when you were in single digits you nascar nigger.

    I saw Back To the Future 25 times in the theatres.

    I know all about Huey ya dipshit bastard.

    Why don’t you take your trust fund money and become a race car driver.

    With any luck…you, your sister, Hugo Armstrong and your white trash brother in law will be decapitated in the same wreck.

    I’m sorry. I’m wrong to say that.

    You’re all white trash.

    Go back to misoura nigger.

    Nothing will ever stop me.

    *seriously….give this asshole a book and watch him hold that shit upside down.

    “Is thus abowt carS? Uh like cars.”

  9. Wow…that e-cards truly out of sight. Gus Seyffert’s in league with a bunch of scientologists who conspired to fucked up my life and then tried to kill me when I got wise to what was happening.

    He’s also a misouran shit-kicker who hopes that short sentences and lots of excuses will hide the fact these a despearate fucking moron with a severe inferiority complex.

    These people tried to kill me.

    His music is shit!? Who needs more radio friendly nascar nazis singing bullshit falsetto over expensive sounding vapor rock.

    This motherfucker is worse than that asslicker Johnny Lang.

    Fuck these people.

    This is America. You just can’t do this to Rock and Roll and gtet away with it…

    Fuck that.

    There’s nothing there.

    this guy is the worst kind of asshole…

    And he’s guilty.

    there will be an investigation.

    He’s already given too many clues.

    He knows what I’m up to…and he’s guilty as charged.

    these people are fucked in the head.

    They are sociapathic and unable to reason.

    It’s called scientology, mind control, ..It’s the reason new Hollywood sucks….and Music has been wiped out in favor of Dog shit piss like

    Gus Seyffert.

    Fuck these people.

    They can only get away with this shit because of George W. Bush.
