'low bedroom ceilings? those are frightful' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't judge whether it can be defined by this definition.

'heads banging on' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
'on' could be 'at' (I've seen this in other clues) and 'at' is found in the answer.
This explanation may well be incorrect...
