Lice Shampoo


Lice Shampoo was formed in Tblisi, Georgia in Spring 1978 by four tourists who almost immediately got on an airplane and headed back to London where they lived, to work on their debut EP, the imaginatively titled Lice Shampoo EP [Silly-Billy Records]. Originally called The Shampoo Lice, the band changed their name to reflect the names of the original members - Johnny Sham (Vocals), Kristoff Pool (Guitars and moogs), Saiera Li (bass, and standing about a bit) and the improbably named Bartholemew Ce (Drums and percussion).

Lice Shampoo was formed in Tblisi, Georgia in Spring 1978 by four tourists who almost immediately got on an airplane and headed back to London where they lived, to work on their debut EP, the imaginatively titled Lice Shampoo EP [Silly-Billy Records].

That first release was both abrasive and incompetent, fitting the spirit of the age. But Lice Shampoo immediately stood out from the post-punk London scene due to the unusual height of its members, as noted by journalist Danny Kelly in an NME article in November '78: "Lice Shampoo are not just a tall band, they're a very tall band." Their debut album was released in 1979 on the infamous Kakk Handed label, and was instantly universally ignored. Also called Lice Shampoo, it honed the group's sound into the clattering, but diverse and divisive, soupy mess of vomit-noise that fans would later come to embrace... or at least endure. After that time Lice Shampoo careered from tiny independent label to tiny independent label, not making much of an impression on anyone at all - until they were profiled on Pitchfork media in 2009, and described as "If not one of the great lost bands of the post-punk/new-wave/electropop/jazz era, then at least one of the more tolerable ones." Internet rumours of a reunion were found to be baseless after it emerged that the band have never split up. Read more on Last.fm.
