“Do you know Pitchfork?” This was Royal Headache drummer Shortty’s innocent query after learning that a certain Ryan Schreiber was interested in his band.
The Pitchfork founder had emailed the Sydney four-piece requesting an MP3 of ‘Eloise’ after hearing the track on local blog Rose Quartz. The track – a song about a girl
that the band hastily recorded on a Dictaphone in a Putney boatshed recorded by the Straight Arrows' Owen Penglis on 1/4" tape – is now streaming on the site’s influential Forkcast. It will appear on the band’s debut 7” which will be out on R.I.P Society Records in late September.
