Episode 77 - King's X - Tape Head (Part 1)

Episode 77 is here, the wheel goes off the rails and picks Tape Head by the band King’s X! Are they Rock? Are they Prog? The guys are stoked to listen to this as they have always wanted to dive into King’s X! What do they think? Stay Tuned!

Tape Head is the seventh studio album by American rock band King’s X, released in 1998 via Metal Blade Records.

A music video was made for the song “Fade“. “World” is a reworked song from the band’s Sneak Preview demos. The controversial unreleased track “Quality Control” is included on the album, but has been re-titled to “Happy“. The majority of the lyrics are now different, including the lack of profanity.

The album cover picture is that of Doug Pinnick wrapped in recording tape.

According to Pinnick, he brought the songs “Happy“, “Cupid” and “Hate You“, and Ty Tabor brought “Ocean” to the Tape Head recording sessions. All other songs were band created during the recording session.
