EXPERIENCE IT THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE - ON VINYL LP!
Smash Your Head Against the Wall is the debut solo album by John Entwistle of The Who, released on Track Records. Its strange cover strangely resembles an
Egyptian sarcophagus - but it is in fact Entwistle wearing a death mask while looking through the chest X-ray of a lung cancer patient.
The album itself offers a more downbeat and aggressive view of life than even the Who had to offer at their most pessimistic, as witnessed in the title
track (aka "My Size"), the hazy rocker "Heaven And Hell" (which features some sterling acid guitar riffing by Cyrano Langston) and the closing track, "I
Believe In Everything", which ends with a seemingly impromptu chorus of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", to end a sometimes uncompromising album on an
unexpectedly happy note. Who bandmate Pete Townshend once said about the album, "We learned more about John from him making an album than we did in all
the years he'd ever played bass with us", a reference to both his quiet demeanor and his then-mostly unknown capabilities as a songwriter.
Keith Moon, Vivian Stanshall and Neil Innes all make guest appearances.
