Olympia, WA based Godheadsilo was a duo of Mike Kunka and Dan Haugh. Two of them met in Fargo, North Dakota and originally they were a trio, but guitarist Phil Leitch left the band after their first show and thus they decided to go on as a duo.

Although they were on hiatus for a long time, Dan and Mike joined Murder City Devils guitarist Spencer Moody in a band called Smoke and Smoke, which so far produced one album called “Love Suffers Long” in 2004. Mike Kunka also joined Enemymine, a band which also included Danny Sasaki (Jackie O Motherfucker, Mocket) and Ryan Baldoz (Some Velvet Sidewalk).

It came out on Fargo, ND based Moo Bob Records and also was the label’s first and final release. Curiously enough, Godheadsilo covered Rotten Gramma track from this compilation on their “Share The Fantasy” album.

Much of band’s material came out on Kill Rock Stars label, but their last studio album “Skyward In Triumph” was released by Sub Pop in 1996. They also contributed to compilations on a whole number of labels, including Karate Brand, Amphetamine Reptile, Yoyo and Coat-Tail Records. One of those compilations was   Joy Division tribute and also featured Moby, Codeine and Smashing Pumpkins lead singer Billy Corgan (as Starchildren), among others.
