Based in Texas, Bedhead were active between 1991 and 1998. Formed by brothers Matt and Bubba Kadane, the band was completed by Tench Coxe, Trini Martinez and Kris Wheat. They released three LPs, including the final Transaction de Novo in 1998. Their sound made use of varying time signatures (some songs were in 7/8 or 5/4) and was labelled by critics as ‘slo-core’, much to the band’s disgust. After the band’s break up, Matt and Bubba Kadane formed a new band, The New Year.
