Githead portrait

Githead are: Malka Spigel, Robin Rimbaud (Scanner), Colin Newman and Max Franken. The band has since 2004 managed to craft a style which is both original yet accessible, combining rhythmic toughness with interweaving guitars, and insistently funky basslines with deadpan vocals. Find out more about the band.
