Formed in Wellington, Head Like A Hole originally consisted of Booga Beazley, Nigel Regan, Andrew Durno and Mark Hamill. Like most young bands, they started out by playing small gigs at local pubs & various well known live venues. Then quickly started touring the university circuit. The band soon made a name for themselves with energetic and often outrageous live performances, appearing on stage either naked, caked with mud, or covered completely in body paint.
Therefore forming a solid and dedicated following throughout the live music scene. Head like a Hole were soon signed to Wildside Records and began their recording career. 1992 saw the release of their debut album, '13' which the band largley produced themselves. The single 'Fish across Face' successfully made it into the New Zealand Top 10 charts. In keeping with Head Like a Hole tradition the video for 'Fish across Face' included a scene where Nigel regurgitates an orange substance into Booga’s mouth and was promptly pulled off air.
