Esoteric Recordings are delighted to announce the first ever release of a new 2 CD remastered set of both albums recorded by HEADSTONE in 1974 and 1975. Headstone was formed in 1974 by former Rare Bird member Mark Ashton and Atomic Rooster guitarist Steve Bolton. Their debut album ‘Bad Habits’ was recorded at Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire and Trident Studios and was produced by Anthony who had worked with Genesis, Van der Graaf Generator, Al Stewart and Queen. The band was augmented by Phil Chen (bass) and “Chili” Charles (drums) and also featured a guest appearance by Rare Bird keyboard player Dave Kaffinetti. Upon the release of ‘Bad Habits’ the demand for the band to play live led to a formation of a new line-up of the band with Phil Chen and “Chili” Charles being replaced by Jerome Rimson (bass) and Peter Van Hooke (drums). The album ‘Headstone’ was released in 1975 adorned in a striking sleeve designed by Hipgnosis and Colin Elgie. The band toured as opening acts for artists as diverse as Roy Harper, John Cale and Rory Gallagher, but Headstone sadly failed to make a wider commercial impression despite receiving good reviews and disbanded by the end of 1976.
