The Thing with Two Heads

thing with two heads









The Thing With Two Heads (aka The Sonic Chicken 2) is comprised of husband and wife disc jockeys Bazooka Joe (aka Joe Diddley) and XTINE16 (aka Sweet Little Sixteen). Having had residencies in New York City with gigs in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco, St. Louis, Reno, Boston, Washington D.C. and Baltimore under their collective belt, this torrid tag-team has also spun their wares at some of the world’s top garage rock shows featuring such seminal acts as the A-Bones, Action Swingers, Black Lips, Cheater Slicks, King Khan & BBQ Show, Little Killers, Nobunny, Reigning Sound, Sonic Chicken 4, Spits, Swingin’ Neckbreakers and many others, as well as showcases for legendary trash-rock labels Crypt Records and Norton Records. So what exactly is it that makes The Thing With Two Heads so goddamned good? It seems that everyone is a DJ these days, but this DJ’s collection is comprised of 100% top-shelf vinyl records running the gamut of party music from the mid-50’s through late-60’s, then tapers off until the punk rock explosion of the mid 70’s and continues on with the current crop of unhinged rockers which are selected with total lunacy in mind. Having relocated to Central PA from New York City, The Thing With Two Heads is on a mission to provide the area with depraved and lascivious dance floor madness, laying down the kind of swinging action unobtainable from run-of-the-mill trend following DJ’s that have to rely on their “skills” to try and make insipid club music sound interesting. The Thing With Two Heads’ records speak for themselves, and they speak LOUD.
