Mezcal Head is the second album released by the British alternative rock band Swervedriver released in 5 August 1993 under Creation Records in the United Kingdom and on A&M Records in the United States. In 1993, Swervedriver re-emerged with the core of Adam Franklin and Jimmy Hartridge, along with newly recruited drummer Jez Hindmarsh (. Jez"), and released the album Mezcal Head
That album was Raise. Swervedriver’s roots began in an Oxford band called Shake Appeal, named after a track from Iggy & the Stooges’ Raw Power. After limited success, the band decided to split with some of the remaining members forming Swervedriver. Almost never was a band more aptly named. With the car references and a swirly rush of guitars on every track, how could they be named anything else?

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Swervedriver is, simply put, an amazing band. Raise" is alternatingly their best or second best album (along with "Mezcal Head") depending on my mood. This one I love for its true shoegazing sound. It is muddied and dreamlike, and full of guitar work that one can only truly appreciate if they see Swervedriver or Adam Franklin (Toshack Highway) live. This is full of so many great songs I don't even know where to begin.
