The Dirty Heads
The Dirty Heads is a great band. Their music is regga with a rap twist. I would suggest this band to anyone that i know. Their music is inspirational to many people including myself. Here is a little background on the band.
Originally, this band is from Southern California. The band was founded in 1996 by Jared “Dirty J” Watson and Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell in Orange County,CA. Jared and Dustin met at a high school party in their freshamn year. Hearing one of Jared’s rap demos, Dustin had the idea to work with him on a project. At the time, Jared was already in a band, while Dustin had no music experience at all. In Jared’s garage, him and Dustin began writing hip-hop songs with reggae and punk influences. The band’s name comes from when the two were stealing a 12-pack (of beer), and someone shouted at them “Come here you little dirty heads!”
Later, percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa, and bassist David Foral were added to the lineup, further defining the band’s sound. With a full band the members started taking their craft seriously and began recording. Renowned record producer Rob Cavallo originally signed the band to Warner Bros., but artistic differences led them to leave the label. The band kept hold of their master recordings through separation, which comprise the bulk of “Any Port in a Storm”. The band then connected with producers Steve Fox and Stan Fraizer to complete their debut album.
