From 1991 to 1997, he also devoted his considerable energies to The Magick Heads – a band conceived by Scott, and 3Ds members David Mitchell and David Saunders, as a vehicle for the striking voice of Jane Sinnott.
Scott, Saunders and Mitchell first heard Jane Sinnott when she was singing Sundays and Smiths songs in a covers band at Dunedin’s Empire Tavern.
Initial funding given by the QEII Arts Council to the band listed them as Jane and the Magick Heads.
Before We Go Under – the title track of the first Magick Heads album was originally written by Robert Scott for American singer Barbara Manning. She recorded it as ‘B4 We Go Under’ with Flophouse in 1993.
