Wendyfix, Carpark Records-Founder Todd Hyman’s Early 90’s College Rock Band, Share “Pillowhead” Video
Wendyfix’s “We Have The Cracks” and Remy’s self-titled EP, Newly Remixed and Remastered, Out Now via Carpark
Carpark Records is excited to share Wendyfix’s “Pillowhead” video today. The label recently re-released two special albums from label founder Todd Hyman’s early 90’s college bands, the aforementioned Wendyfix and Remy. Originally released on cassette and long since out of print, these gems of indie rock are newly remixed by Pat Jones (Toro Y Moi, Washed Out) and remastered by Joe Lambert from the original half-inch tape masters and are being digitally released for the first time.
Long before Carpark formed, Hyman was making music from his dorm room with Jon Solomon (Comedy Minus One Records), Ted Pauly (Haywood), and later Brian McGrath (who would replace Solomon). The music has been mostly unreleased until now and has since been digitally restored. The “Pillowhead” music video is actually the first Wendyfix video made (in spring 1994) and captures of some amazing shots from the era and a day at the amusement park. Hyman shared:
“We went to a visiting amusement park in the south side of Chicago for this one. Then there’s some shots of us playing in the basement of someone’s apartment building. I think this video predated the oversaturated colors in music video trend of the mid to late 90s.”
