Description

Body Blow is the second studio album by New Zealand rock band the Headless Chickens. It was originally released in 1991, then rereleased for Australia in 1993 with a substantially reworked track list, losing “Crash Hot” and “Road Train” but gaining “Mr. Moon”, “Juice”, “Choppers” and some remixes.[1] Another Australian version followed in 1994 with the addition of a bonus disc containing six remixes.[2]

Body Blow is Headless Chickens’ most successful album, including three top-10 singles and achieving double platinum sales.[3] The album includes a cover of “Inside Track”, originally recorded as “The Inside Track” by New Zealand new wave band Stridulators.[4][5]

Reviewed in Rolling Stone Australia, the first single, “Gaskrankinstation”, was noted for its inability to be categorised. It was described as a “tragic saga of a callous fool trapped in a dumb job and a loveless marriage. The tempo builds inexorably with the sense of an impending catastrophe.”[6]

On 29 March 2019, an extended version was reissued.[7]
