Heads Apart are a 5 piece Melodic Hardcore band from Peterborough England first formed in October of 1993 by three longstanding friends Sean Dunleavy Rich 'Angus' Mackman and Rob Baylis.
They swiftly recorded their first seminal 4 song demo and with the addition of phenomenal bassist Jason Greensides (then only 16) and 2nd guitarist Danny Frost (Rich & Danny had previously played together with Gizz Butt and Pinch in Metal mavericks Monkey Jungle and then the first line up of a re-formed English Dogs) and proceeded to leave a path of confrontational fun filled mayhem across many an east anglian club & pub and beyond.
By December 1994 they had released their 2nd demo the "No Spinach EP" and having secured financial backing from a long time friend of the band Del Taylor, they entered Backstage Studios Derby in July of 1995 with rising producer Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Exodus, Machine Head) and chopped out their debut album "Feisty" in a mere 5 days- A notable achievement as this was the first self financed full length CD by any Peterborough band.
Feisty garnered a 4/5 review in Kerrang Magazine and an international distribution deal with Cargo Records. Heads Apart went on to gig extensively througout 1996, being featured in literally hundreds of UK & European fanzines and narrowly missing out on a recording opportunity with Fat Wreck Chords.
But by 1997 things had moved on, Rich had quit the band for his new venture The Vow and Jason Greensides had also left to pursue a career in film making and media studies. Stu West (currently bassist with the Damned) was recruited and a 2nd album "7 Day Weekend" was recorded, but was never made available for national release.
Although Heads Apart have been on an indefinate hiatus since 2001 musical liasons still occur- Sean Dan & Rich play together in a particularly nasty Sex Pistols Tribute - Filthy Lucre - and Rob continues to play drums most recently with reformed 70s Punk stalwarts The Destructors 666. Rich also plays bass for Power Pop /Garage act The Contrast who's 7th album The God Of Malfunction was released on Steven Van Zandt's WickedCool Record label in April of 2010. .. ..
