  • The Doors – Blue Sunday – from Morrison Hotel 1970
  • White Hills – Silent Violence – The Revenge of Heads on Fire consummates Dave W’s prototype for the 2007 release on Rocket Recordings, Heads on Fire, later picked up by Thrill Jockey. Six rediscovered songs accompany re-mixed versions of the original material, fulfilling the master arch of the pyre lit long ago. Recorded during the band’s tumultuous early years, the music vibrates with the energy and volatility of a sonic boom. “It was chaos”, says Dave of the time back in 2007 when he and Ego Sensation (bass/vocals) were recording with drummer/engineer Bob Bellomo at his studio in Passaic, New Jersey. Both Dave and Ego were bartending at the notorious Darkroom bar in the Lower East Side, ingesting loads of substances to keep pace with being up until 6am and traveling out to the studio to record during the days. Hot-tempers led to fights in the studio, excised songs and ultimately the break-up of the trio. While preparing for the filming of their 2021 concert film Splintered Metal Sky, the band discovered a vintage looking hard drive and a small journal in an old WWII naval trunk that Dave’s guitar rig had been propped up on for years in their studio. The journal contained Dave’s handwritten notes, lyrics and drawings from 2007 detailing an over-arching concept and flow for the album Heads on Fire. Long forgotten music was recovered and the band’s passion to finish the original concept was reignited. Fierce and passionate, NYC’s White Hills have garnered a cult reputation as one of the most prolific and genre-bending bands of this era. The music made by core members Dave W. and Ego Sensation is risky and cutting edge, rooted in punk ethos and no-wave aesthetics
