POP MUSIC | RECORD RACK

In Brief

*** Headrillaz, "Coldharbour Rocks," Gee Street/Pussyfoot.

September 28, 1997|D. James Romero

Sure, Prodigy rocks and the Chemical Brothers hop, but Headrillaz emerge as the hardest of a hard-stomping U.K. "big beat" dance scene that is interbreeding like a trailer park in spring. With deafening guitar noise, skanking ska hiccups and mad break beats, this sibling trio from South London sounds like White Zombie on ecstasy. And it might just blow the other big beat boys off the main stage.
