Michael Head’s
1997 classic album
'The Magical World of The Strands'
is given a sibling 20 years after its completion :
'The Olde World'
'The Olde World' is released on 29 June, followed by a reissue of
'The Magical World of the Strands' on 13 July, both on
Megaphone, digitally, on CD and vinyl.
'It’s Harvest Time' is the first track on 'The Olde World'

The version of this song on 1997’s 'The Magical World of the Strands' was an acoustic rough mix.
This full band version feels like lifting a veil, uncovering all the hidden tracks
from the original recording.
Please get in touch for an embed code, if you’d like to stream the song as a premiere.
2015 is a busy year for Michael Head
His second record as ‘Michael Head and the Red Elastic Band’ has just been
released on his own label, Violette - ‘Velvets in the Dark’ 7 inch single.
Shack’s 1990 single ‘I Know You Well’ opens ‘Perfect Motion’, Jon Savage’s 2LP
compilation as “a musical return-trip to these fondly remembered years
spanning 1988-93”.
Plus, Megaphone is set to release both ‘The Magical World of The Strands’ in its
original form with a new extensive booklet, and ‘The Olde World’ as an
exclusive new album of recordings from the same sessions.
Last but not least, Michael plans his first gigs as ‘Michael Head & The Strands’
promising to play his classic album ‘The Magical World of The Strands’ in full.
